Materials Processing Technology

What’s the sum of a miniature sized plastics factory, an energy lab, a chemistry lab, over 280 eager engineering students and a number of innovative teachers and researchers in environmental and energy engineering and materials processing technology? Well, the answer is fairly simple: The Department of Energy and Materials Technology at Arcada.

Course list 2021-22

This course list is put together for the incoming exchange students in Mechanical and Sustainable Engineering (Materials Processing Technology).

Please select the courses with special attention to the course requirements (see the pre-requisites and co-requisites for each course by following their respective link).  We recommend that you divide the courses as evenly as possible between the periods for a suitable workload.
