Best Master Programs in Sweden 2017. Master’s Programme in Mechanical Engineering with Emphasis on Structural Engineering The aim of the program is to have the student prepare for participation in advanced product development or research within mechanical engineering. The aim is that the student after completed degree should master a coordinated working method at analysis for decision support in the product development process, the extensive modules of virtual and physical modelling, simulation and experimental investigation and optimisation. Coordinated working method at analysis for decision support. The student is expected to inform herself/himself about current field-relevant research and considerably increase her/his ability to communicate her/his own contributions with scientific facts and relations both orally and in writing by means of modern tools for visualisation and documentation. The coordinated working method can in short be described according to: Virtual models for description of interesting product properties and behaviours are developed, verified and used for simulations of the functionality of the system. The Simulation result is compared with experimental results of studies on delimited parallelly developed physical models, or with experiences from earlier development, with the aim of validating the virtual models. The coordination also implies that the virtual models are used to design good physical models and measurement strategies. This process is repeated until sufficient agreement is achieved. Simulation with the virtual model can then be used for optimisation. If the optimisation shows a need for changes that influence the relevance for the current model, the whole procedure is repeated.
