This programme within product development is focusing on being able to predict and optimize engineering components. The program introduces you to product realization and both product and production development. You learn about materials science, manufacturing technology, surface technology och numerical analysis. The second-year offers two tracks, one within component optimization and the other is given entirely online within foundry technology. Within component technology, you get more experienced with computational fluid dynamics and finite element analysis. You will also study polymers and simulation of process influence on microstructure. In the foundry technology track, you get acquainted by the various casting alloys and casting processes. You learn about melting, molding materials, and environmental impact assessment as well as solidification, analysis of defects, and modeling of the casting process.

Programme structure

The meaning of the term Product Design JU is a subject that integrates industrial design,
product development, material selection and production preparation from idea to use. This has
been derived as a subset from the broader research area in JU i.e., industrial product realization.
This area contains three sub-areas:

-Machine design
-Materials and Manufacturing
-Production systems
-Industrial design

Career opportunities

After completing the program, the graduates will be qualified for positions in the early phases of
the product development defining the appearance of the product. Here, training of software,
sketching and modelling techniques for the early phase visualization of products and product
ideas will be relevant in the professional role. The graduates may also work with the analysis of
products using computational software such as FEA and CFD. They will perhaps plan the
manufacturing of the products by simulating the production processes.

The graduates will also be useful in companies that seek to make their product development
processed more efficient by visualizing the work-flow and proposing PLM software. They can
improve the integration between the product development and the production by proposing or
creating software for the integration. The program is also preparatory for a role as PhD students
in Universities and institutes. They will in the program get insight in research methods and they
will also write a scientific thesis.
