Work with advanced product development in coordinated processes and predict and optimise performance using virtual and physical modelling.

The programme makes you qualified in several specific areas within product development. A degree leads to professional roles in advanced product development or research in mechanical engineering.

Advanced product development with several dimensions
The programme prepares you to work with advanced product development or to conduct research in mechanical engineering. After completing the degree, you will master a coordinated way of working where you combine elements and subprocesses in a systematic and developing process.

A diversity of tasks – a diverse competence
During the programme, you will work with a multitude of tasks – virtual and physical modelling, simulation, experimental investigation and optimisation. You acquire a solid basis for working with performance prediction and ensuring that new products achieve their intended function, using your specialised knowledge in mathematics, numerical calculation methods, measurement technology, analysis of vibrations, and acoustics and fracture mechanics.

The programme consists of 120 credits and leads to a two-year Master’s degree.

The tuition fee is SEK 60,000 per semester. One semester corresponds to 30 ECTS credits. EU/EEA citizens are not required to pay fees.

Former students

Sharlin studied the Master’s Programme in Mechanical Engineering. Since 2,5 years she is living in Karlskrona, which she experienced as very different to her hometown in Bangladesh.

Watch our Zoom-interview with Sharlin and learn more about the differences to her home country, the outcomes of the Master’s Programme and which advice Sharlin is giving you as a future student of BTH.


Pacifique came to Karlskrona from Rwanda to study mechanical engineering and already had a lot of professional experience in the industry.

Watch our zoom-interview and you will find out more about why this master’s programme is the right choice for him, what experience he was able to gain in projects with the industry and what advice he gives you as future students.
