Konstruksjoner og materialer - Master i teknologi/siv.ing.

The master program provides an expertise and advanced knowledge, skills and general competence in Mechanical and Structural Engineering and Material Technology. Graduated students will have a background in engineering science and basic engineering subjects. The students will be able to apply this knowledge within their area of specializations. The students will be qualified to participate and manage the development and implementation of new technology, methods and principles. Candidates with a master's degree in Engineering Structures and Materials will be qualified for many attractive jobs in civil engineering structures, production and manufacturing industries, mechanical systems, renewable energy projects and offshore industries. Within the two-year master's program, students can immerse themselves in mechanical systems, renewable energy, civil engineering structures or offshore structures.

Program content, structure and progression:
Consisting of a total of 120 ECTS, the master program is made up of 20 ECTS basic subjects (B) which consolidate and continue the mathematical and scientific foundation from the bachelor program. The remaining 100 credits consist of 25 ECTS compulsory core subjects (C), 45 ECTS specialization courses (S) and a master thesis of 30 ECTS (M). The master's program currently has four specializations:
  • Mechanical Systems (maskinkonstruksjoner)
  • Renewable Energy (Fornybar energi)
  • Civil Engineering Structures (byggkonstruksjoner)
  • Offshore Structures (offshorekonstruksjoner)

The master's thesis can be prepared either at the department or in cooperation with industry. Many students base their master's theses on practical projects in various industries. In order to be assigned a suitable and a relevant theme for a master thesis, satisfactory progression must be demonstrated as cited in Regulations for Master's thesis. Project proposals for master's thesis should formally be pre-approved by an academic staff member of the mechanical and structural engineering groups of the department.

The University aims to offer all its programs as planned, but courses still have to be subjected to availability of resources and the minimum student enrolment. In addition, the content and scope of courses will have to be changed over time due to changes in professional environment, use of new technology, new practices and theories, and general changes in the society.

Teaching methods include a combination of lectures, projects, compulsory and voluntary exercises and laboratory work. The following are stated in the individual course descriptions:
  • Teaching and learning methods
  • Curricular, compendiums and literature
  • Evaluation criteria
  • Examination criteria

Employment opportunities and Post-graduate education:
The program qualifies the graduates for a broad range of positions in private industry and public organizations. Since the core of the master program consists of commonly usable principles and methods, graduate students can qualify for many attractive job positions in offshore and civil engineering industries, renewable energy projects, production and manufacturing industries and a diverse range of mechanical operations.

The public sector has a great demand for this type of expertise. For graduates in offshore structures, mechanical systems and renewable energy specializations have a demand from activities related to offshore structures, mechanical systems and renewable energy projects of new major and minor structures. Graduates have demands, as there will always be a need of buildings, roads, bridges, materials, machinery, production and manufacturing processes wind/wave and solar energy systems and graduates will therefore be attractive in international job market.

Many will also have interesting job opportunities within research, education, or in public sector devoted to control, regulation and law enforcement of industrial sectors.

Moreover, a completed master's degree with a minimum average grade B for subjects and grade A or B for Master thesis may qualify for admission to the PhD study in Offshore Technology at the University of Stavanger. Graduates are eligible to apply for relevant PhD programs in other universities.
