Simulation Driven Product Development, master programme

120 credits

Simulation driven Product Development is for those who want to develop the sustainable products of the future using numerical and experimental methods.

How is a product designed to meet sustainability requirements regarding performance, life, economy and the environment? During the two years of study you will gain knowledge of product development, together with a deep understanding of modern numerical methods and practical skills in experimental methods used to acquire data supporting the product development process. Upon completion of the master's program, you will be able to handle a wide range of problems in advanced mechanical engineering.


The Master's Program in Simulation Driven Product Development prepares you for a range of advanced tasks in the mechanical engineering field, within industry, where qualified engineers in computing, experimentation and product development are requested, and for further studies at doctoral level.


Master of Science (120 credits) with specilization in Simulation Driven Product Development

Main field of study: Mechanical Engineering

Do you have questions about the programme?

Welcome to a digital meeting Thursday, 7th of April, 12.00-13.00. Andreas Linderholt, program coordinator, will answer all the questions you have.

Peter wants to work within mechanical engineering field to contribute to a more sustainable world

Peter är student vid Linnéuniversitetet

Peter came to Växjö as an exchange student for the mechanical engineering programme and decided to study further at Linnaeus University. He sees the master programme Simulation driven product development as an opportunity to achieve his goal.

To be able to go abroad during your studies is interesting

Nora Faris, student

The focus of the programme felt just right for Nora. She read a course in simulation during her bachelor’s in engineering and thought it was an area she would like to work with in the future.

Nora is now working as a test engineer at Husqvarna.

You will have access to the latest equipment within manufacturing and measurement technology

Andreas Linderholt, programme coordinator

Andreas Linderholt, programme coordinatior: "The development of new products is expected to happen at an increasingly fast pace while at the same time there are ever larger requirements on products being cost-efficient to produce, that they generate a minimal environmental impact, are easy to maintain, and often also that they should weigh as little as possible. Allt this puts great requirements on tomorrow’s product development engineers".

Växjö – the student city with a living campus

Just south of Växjö’s city centre you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. In Växjö, many students choose to live on campus.

Here you will have five minutes’ walking distance to friends, restaurants, lecture rooms, gym, grocery store, the University Library, nature trails, and student pubs. If you live in another part of Växjö, you can quickly get to the university by bus or bicycle.

With its 90 000 inhabitants, Växjö is one of the fastest growing cities in Sweden. Here you will find the famous Småland entrepreneurship spirit and a lot of companies, for instance within the IT industry – perfect for when you are looking for an internship position or a job. Växjö is also one of Europe’s greenest cities where you have easy access to nature, forest and lakes.
