Are you curious about sustainable product development? Would you like to learn how to design, analyse and develop smart and sustainable products by selecting the right engineering materials? Do you look forward to using theoretical knowledge in design, analyses and testing?

If so, you are in the right track of your career goal joining our degree programme in Materials Processing Technology.

Your Studies

Your studies will include modern material technology and processing as well as sustainable product design and development. You will learn how to develop new products and the functional materials involved. As a student in the Materials Processing Technology Programme, you will gain knowledge on modern and sustainable materials as well as their properties. With the knowledge on materials, you will be able to efficiently select appropriate material in engineering design. Several courses on mechanical design and analyses are taught which benefit you on using various modelling, finite element analysis (FEA) and simulation software.

Studying the Materials Processing Technology programme not only builds your theoretical skill set but also brings you into action where you practically involve in product development processes. Your design ideas will be prototyped and manufactured on our state-of-the-art 3D printers and numerically controlled injection moulding machine, optimized for polymer based materials.

Research and Cooperation

The Department of Energy and Materials Technology focuses its applied research on functional materials and energy efficiency, considering the needs of the community and the business world. Within the programme, researches are focused on sustainable materials, product development and engineering analyses. Therefore, in addition to your academics, you may get a chance to participate in these research areas.

At Arcada University of Applied Sciences we believe in, and actively pursue, close co-operation with organizations, companies as well as the public sector. Taking part in academic networks, exchanging knowledge with over 90 universities from all corners of the world, a comprehensive network of contacts within various industries and intensive research projects all work together to guarantee that our expertise is extensive and up to date. You have a vast opportunity of utilizing the research and institutional networks to develop your competence through work placements and traineeships to become a competitive professional upon leaving Arcada.
