As competition between companies is getting tougher as the number of products on the market increases, many are realising the importance of product development and material knowledge as a competitive means. This programme covers the entire product development process, from conceptual engineering design to materials and manufacturing processes. Making complex things simpler

The steady increase in the use of computer support makes possible new methods, which are parallel to the entire product development process. With the help of advanced computer tools in design and construction, real and virtual prototypes can be produced much faster, and the time needed for development can be shortened. In addition, a product can be studied and tested at an early stage of product development for its design, usability, durability, safety and producibility. Important aspects of work with the development of components and products include the analysis of function and performance, the choice of materials and the methods of production. This programme gives an understanding of the theory behind and the practical use of the computer-based tools needed for these tasks.... [-]
