Master of Science in technology: MEC Programme


The aim of the programme is to provide engineers in mechanical engineering especially for the needs of the Finnish marine and automotive industry and their subcontractors.

A graduate engineer completing a degree in mechanical engineering:

  • Provides a systematic analytical approach to solve pragmatic mechanical problems and abstract problems
  • Design and develop machines and equipment as well as machine systems
  • Draw conclusions to solve optimisation tasks in engineering applications using mathematical and physical justifications
  • Provides an overall view of the functioning of mechatronic machines and devices, their dynamics analysis and simulation as part of the process of designing a multi-tech product
  • Apply theoretical virtual modeling principles and ways to solve practical problems related to machine dynamics, robotics and mechatronics
  • Provides a complete understanding of the analysis and coordination of the durability, reliability, manufacturability and metallurgical aspects of welded metal structures
  • Apply design and design principles for metal structures and ways to solve practical problems
  • Choose appropriate design tools to make the design of machines, equipment and structures more productive
  • To perceive and solve innovative research, product development and production problems that are emerging from industry
  • Identify and apply the needs and special features of other fields of technology as part of the product development process
  • Have the skills to undertake scientific postgraduate studies and independent study.
