  6. Engineering Design- Master

    Bachelor in engineering with knowledge in materials, mechanics and modelling, but also others may be suited to the masters programme in engineering design. Special interest in understanding mathematical and physical theories and descriptions of for instance different constuction behaviours, design processeses, materials behaviour may be a benefit for maximizing the learning outcome in the education. Engineering Design, is design based on engineering science and includes knowledge about product design and computational technology. The main ingredients in Engineering Design is technical scientific computations/calculations and applied mathematics, which is applied to problems related to design, geometry and materials science. Engineering Design courses provides students with an understanding of design and aesthetic design in addition to deep understanding of mathematical and physical principles and methods in the design process. We place special emphasis on the geometry and shape, product and design processes, strength calculations and analysis, materials, computer-based modeling and simulations.   The main feature of a product is that it can withstand the stresses it is intended to be exposed to. For example, design and materials adapted to extreme heat or cold, heavy loads over long or short time, and electric or thermal radiation. Sometimes the friction should be as large as possible, while other times it should be as small as possible. Flexible hinges (eg, plastic tops) should withstand being opened and close ...

  8. English Linguistics- master

    The Master's degree programme in English Linguistics covers graduate level studies in English linguistics, and is to be seen as an extension of work at the Bachelor's level. The programme places special emphasis on the formal aspects of grammar, in particular syntax and phonology. The programme has a strong comparative component, although the study of English naturally maintains a central place in the programme. Students will develop insight into the structure of language in general and of English in particular, social and geographic variation, as well as the historical development and acquisition of English. At the Master's level, students will develop special interests based on their coursework and will write either a Master's Thesis or two article-length papers whose main empirical focus should be on English. The programme consists of the following components: 60 ECTS of coursework and  60 ECTS for either one (1) thesis, or two (2) articles Both the coursework and thesis/articles must have English as their main empirical focus. The three elective ten credit courses can come from any 3000-level course in language or linguistics offered by the groups for English and General Linguistics. If their relevance for the programme can be demonstrated, other courses may be accepted by application. Master's ThesisThe degree includes 60 ECTS which must be earned either (i) by writing one Master's Thesis (60 ECTS) or (ii) by writing two papers (30 ECTS each).
