Department of Machine Design
We work with product development in the broadest sense – with everything from innovation management and design methods to surface- and component development and design of engineering systems.
Units and competence centers
The Department of Machine Design consists of three units that conduct their own research and education. We have three competence centers working closely with the industry and providing research-related infrastructure.
