Development engineer in Mechanical engineering.

180 ECTS credits (start autumn-12)
Different materials have different properties and to become a good product developer or engineer must know how different products and materials behave. This is one of the things you learn through hands-on experiments and theoretical models. With the advanced computers and software, do simulations and tests the boundaries in order to develop new products and machinery.

Overview

Admission

Prerequisites

For admission to the study programme, Specific entry requirements no. 8 apply: Mathematics D, Physics B and Chemistry A.

Read more about general admission requirements.

Admission Criteria

If there are more qualified applicants
than available places for the current programme start, a selection is made. This is done in the following way:
All qualified applicants are placed in one or several selection groups parallelly and then participate in the selection within each respective group.

Grade-based selection:

BG - grade average in the 0-20 scale:

Final school grades from the upper-secondary school programmes, final school grades from the upper-secondary school, adult education at upper-secondary level, foreign grades and transcript of courses and grades of the upper-secondary school.
BF - assessment
Folk high school with certificate of general/general entry requirements and student assessment. The distribution of places between the two grade-based groups are made in proportion to the number of applicants in each group.
SA - late applications
This selection group is for late applications. An applicant that submits a late application is placed in this selection group and is assigned tariff after day of arrival.
Examination-based selection:
HE - the Swedish Scholastic Aptitude Test
In the examination-based selection all qualified applicants with a valid Swedish Scholastic Aptitude Test participate. The lowest accepted result to participate in the examination-based selection is 0.1 points.
Other applicants:
The applicant that satisfies the requirement of entry requirements of but lacks a tariff can only be admitted provided that all in the above groups have been offered places.
DA - Direct admission can take place under certain circumstances through individual review.

Distribution of places:
At the admission to a study programme, 67 % of the places should be distributed in a grade-based selection and 33 % in an examination-based selection. An applicant that satisfies the requirements for both the selection groups should be included in both.
Qualified applicants with the same qualifications:
If two or several applicants to an alternative at first- and second cycle have the same tariff, lots will be drawn.
For complete information about selection, see the admission regulations of BTH.

Admission Procedure

Recognition of prior studies and studies abroad

Student who has been admitted to the programme and has earlier completed a course that corresponds to a course within the programme, can apply for recognition of prior studies. If possible, the student will be offered admission to an alternative course. Studies abroad within the programme can normally be partly or fully recognised. In these cases a decision is made via the Learning Agreement, prior the study period.

Learning outcomes

In addition to the nationally regulated aims which are found under point 8, the following aims apply to the education.

After completion of the education, the student should
- independently be able to use theoretical models and methods to treat common occurring problems within the scientific and mechanical engineering field
- be able to apply sustainability principles and have understanding about the influence that the own work has on the surrounding society and the environment
- independently and in a professional engineering manner be able to apply her/his acquired technical detailed knowledge in an industrial context
- be able to use theories, methods and means of assistance to in an innovative and sustainable way create new employments and products and in a professional engineering manner be able to evaluate the outcome.
- in a professional way be able to speak and communicate thoughts, ideas and work result to the environment, customers and surrounding society
