The focus in this MSc programme is on the application of materials as well as process and production technologies in high-tech products within various fields, including energy production, the automotive and aeronautical industries, medical devices, and communication. The programme enables you to predict, control, and optimize material properties, and to analyse and optimize the industrial process technologies that are relevant for advanced products at both micro and macro scale.

With this motivation, the education in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering provides not just theoretical curiosity-driven knowledge, but rather is application-oriented with focus on the case-specific interrelation between i) process technologies for manufacturing and post-manufacturing treatments of high-tech products, ii) required properties of a certain product, iii) performance of a product under operating conditions and iv) the internal structure of the materials the product is made of.

Career Opportunities 

An MSc degree in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering provides excellent opportunities on the job market and entrance to work in the private and public sector.

Materials and processes are crucial to society's wealth and technological progress and, accordingly, job opportunities are manifold in e.g. the field of development, improvement and optimization of products in industry; development and improvement of advanced materials, manufacturing processes and production systems; innovation, product development and technological consulting.

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet's hovedadresse ligger i Lyngby 10 kilometer nord for København, og det er primært her at DTU studerende bliver undervist. Du kan tage turen til DTU i Lyngby med bil eller ved hjælp af offentlige transportmidler. Der kører flere busser næsten lige til døren og Lyngby Station ligger 2 km. væk, men også her er der gode busforbindelser, f.eks. bus nr. 300S mod Nærum eller bus nr. 190. Begge har stoppested på Anker Engelunds Vej.
