BRIDGE THE GAP
EARN A MASTER DEGREE IN
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND MANUFACTURING
The Master of Engineering in Industrial Production and Manufacturing (MEng IPM) is offered by the GUtech’s department of engineering in the faculty of engineering and computer sciences.
The MEng IPM is delivered in a flexible modular format and intensive block courses during evening and weekend classes, to fit around full-time jobs and the schedule of fresh graduates aspiring to land their first j0b while attending the MEng IPM.
Courses are taught by GUtech’s faculty members and visiting professors from University of Brescia and other renowned universities.
The MEng programme is taught in English. A variety of assessment formats are used including written and oral tests, seminar papers and the Master thesis. Students can choose to conduct the Master thesis and/or undertake internship placements in Brescia, Italy.
The main focus of the first semester is to convey the fundamentals of the study programme in production of materials, traditional production processes and technologies and on the methods to test and control products and processes. In addition, principles of quality management and economics are analysed with a special focus on entrepreneurship.
The second semester covers the issues of material behaviour and selection from an engineering point of view with more specialised courses in advanced production processes, innovative manufacturing systems, plant management, and logistic.
The third semester focuses on advanced technologies for micro-components and nano-surfaces production, on production techniques applied to local ores with a particular attention to safety and environmental issues together with product life cycle assessment and recycling, and project management.
In the fourth semester students are required to write the Master’s thesis.
Study requirements consist of contact hours (in class, on excursion or during practical lab work) and related individual study work (reading of related literature, exam preparation, writing of seminar papers or reports, and completion of the Master’s thesis).
Students will be required to complete a total workload of 120 ECTS credit points including a master’s thesis, to qualify for graduation.
Students are expected to complete the programme in four semesters.
TRANSFERRING GRADUATE CREDITS
Students can apply to transfer up to 50 percent of ECTS credit points from classes completed prior to their admission at GUtech. Transfer credit is evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the relevant department’s faculty members.
