Master in Product Design Engineering

Open Applications 2019/2020

Goals

This master’s programme aims to give to its students an integrated set of skills solidly grounded on advanced knowledge in the scientific area of mechanical engineering in general, with a special focus on the domains of product design and development. The main goals of this Master are to confer the capacity to integrate knowledge of different disciplines, to frame and solve problems, to know how to communicate and to survey and produce relevant professional information, as well as managing lifelong learning. It also allows students to gain more competences in domains related to product development so that they can better develop quality products in a rapid and innovative way, with high levels of success and effective benefits. It will also allow active professionals to obtain a specialization in this domain, increasing the technical competence and dynamics of the region’s industrial and entrepreneurial communities.

The Master in Product Design Engineering prepares students to:

  • Provide an integrated set of dynamic skills, solidly based on technical and scientific knowledge, essential to the development of quality products, in a fast and innovative way, with a high degree of success and added value;
  • Provide a multidisciplinary and versatile training that allows the professional to perform strategic functions and / or supervision in industrial or services companies, as well as public or private entities.
