Degree Progr. in Materials Design and Engineering (CMATD), Study programme for batch Autumn 07
Last edit: 02/05/2012
Beyond those objectives that are specified in the Higher Education Ordinance, a graduate of Master of Science in Materials Engineering at KTH will…
Knowledge and understanding
• Have a broad knowledge in Materials Engineering in order to be able to develop and manufacture future materials based on metals, ceramics, polymers and cellulose materials
• Have deep knowledge within the area, through a knowledge built on a material scientific foundation which consists of the relation between the materials’ description, structure, properties and usage. The scientific point-of-view should contain all length scales from the nano-meter level to the micrometer level to the component levels in the final product.
Skills and abilities
• have experimental skills which are trained in material synthesis and analysis, analytic abilities and system thinking which are trained in material selection, and in design of new materials and processes
• have a full view with respect to material selection, development and usage based on an industrial and ecological approach. It includes a system of thinking where function, performance, reliability and economy are weaved together with ecological aspects such as environmental stress, environmental cycle considerations, and availability.
• Have individual and professional skills such as language, leadership, project-management and communication for work as an engineer in a leadership position or as a leader in a technically intensive company.
Ability to make judgments and adopt a standpoint
• have a good understanding that engineering-related problems, seen from a system perspective, are often complex, incompletely defined and sometimes contain contradictions
• Show an understanding of responsibility and ethics in relation to technical, ecological and societal activities.
