Mechanical Engineering in Groningen has a long-running tradition of top research. We offer student a Master's degree programme in Mechanical Engineering that perfectly fits the needs of a flourishing local industry, as well as preparing you for an international career in industry.
The mission of the master’s degree programme in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Groningen is:
To train and prepare students to apply principles of engineering, science and mathematics in the modelling, analysis, design and realization of physical systems, components and processes; special focus is on advanced instrumentation, smart factories, process design for energy systems and materials for mechanical engineering.
Main compulsory courses
•Introduction to Data Science
Advanced Instrumentation is organized in cooperation with ENTEG, KVI-CART and SRON, research institutes specialized in instrumentation for many decades. You will learn about the fundamental limits and possibilities of detection technologies and high-precision control that are crucial for the development of advanced instrumentation. Application areas include space telescope, European Extremely Large Telescope, medical radiotherapy.
Smart Factories was developed with the input of companies from the Innovation Cluster Drachten and the Region of Smart Factories organization. You will gain essential knowledge on robotics, control and processing technologies for complex materials that define the factories of the future where machines operate with high precision and high adaptability enabling zero-defect manufacturing systems and mass customization.
Process Design for Energy Systems
You will acquire advanced knowledge on the process and energy technologies, multi-domain dynamical modeling of process and energy systems, and advanced techniques for their control. You will be able to design and develop smart energy systems that include process design and optimization.
Materials for Mechanical Engineering
You will learn about the engineering of advanced materials and their fundamental properties in the micro/nanoscale, essential for the development of complex engineering systems that require specific material properties. Examples are biomedical devices and implants, consumer products and lithography machines.
