Subject representative

The research study programme is offered with a specialisation in simulation, control and optimisation of complex industrial systems, where questions within both production technology and machine design are included.

Research conducted within mechanical engineering and the production field entails for instance optimisation and control of production systems, manufacturing processes as well as optimisation of complex material systems. Within the field of machine design, in the borderland between design and production, research is undertaken into the development of computer-aided design and its links to product development and industrial service processes (preparation, virtual factories etc.).

Research is mainly conducted in cooperation projects with industrial partners, but also in collaboration with other universities and institutes of technology.
