DescriptionThe Design of Mechanical Systems programme at Aalborg University in Denmark, focuses on design and development of industrial products through the use of both theory and practice. Thereby, you learn how to combine technical and creative skills and obtain in-depth knowledge about the entire design and development process.
The programme gives you insight into a wide range of design tools essential for a mechanical engineer. The classical engineering disciplines such as mechanics of materials, continuum mechanics, and variational methods are combined with courses on the latest computer based simulation tools like finite element methods, optimisation methods and multi body system analysis methods. The use of composite materials for advanced structural applications is one of the key areas of the programme, and you will learn how to use these for engineering design purposes.
The programme offers courses and projects within the following fields:
- Stress and deformation analyses of load carrying structural elements
- Continuum mechanics (theory of elasticity, plasticity, and micro mechanics)
- Finite element methods
- Fracture mechanics and fatigue
- Energy and variational methods with applications
- Multi body system analysis
- Engineering design optimization
- Mechanics of composite materials and structures
- Engineering design of mechanical systems
Career OpportunitiesAs a graduate from the Design of Mechanical Systems programme, you will typically be employed in a company where you can take part in the technological development and research and where you understand technical management of developmental projects.
Examples of companies, where you can be employed, are:
• Industrial companies
• A part of a company’s research and development department
• In the academic world as a PhD student
