A graduate student, who has completed 2-year master degree in Industrial Asset Management, shall have the following learning outcome defined as knowledge, skills and general competence:



Knowledge

  • The candidate has advanced and interdisciplinary knowledge in industrial assets and specialized insights into technical and operational integrity, as well as innovation and entrepreneurship.
  • The candidate has thorough and relevant knowledge in engineering and management of advanced, complex and integrated industrial assets (ex. production systems / processes, production facilities, technical systems / machinery / equipment, etc.) in all life cycle phases (i.e. concept development and Design, construction and assembly, installation and commissioning, operation and maintenance, modification and upgrading, removal and recycling).
  • The candidate has knowledge of engineering and management of industrial assets and management that can be used for technical and operational integrity analysis, technology development and innovation, and entrepreneurship in new areas of practical and / or theoretical importance.
  • The candidate has the ability to analyze practical or academic problems in industrial assets based on history, traditions, and industrial and social needs.



Skills
  • The candidate can analyze existing theories, methods and interpretations in industrial assets (ex. Production systems / processes, production facilities, technical systems / machines / equipment, etc.) and work independently with practical and theoretical problem solving. The candidate can independently identify, map, analyze and solve challenging production processes / production problems using existing theories, methods and interpretations in the field.
  • The candidate can use relevant methods and knowledge for research and professional development in an independent manner.
  • The candidate can analyze and relate critically to various sources of information and use them to structure and formulate practical and / or academic arguments related to engineering and management of industrial assets.
  • The candidate may conduct an independent, limited research or development project under supervision and in accordance with current research ethical standards related to engineering activities, as well as technical and operational integrity analysis, technology development and innovation and entrepreneurship.



General competence
  • The candidate can analyze relevant academic and research ethical challenges and be eligible to participate in the development and implementation of new technologies, methods and principles, as well as engineering or management solutions for industrial assets in the industry.
  • The candidate can apply knowledge and skills in new areas to carry out advanced tasks and projects related to industrial assets, technical and operational integrity, technology development and innovation, and entrepreneurship.
  • The candidate can communicate comprehensive work professionally and independently, and master terminology, language and expression in industrial assets.
  • The candidate can communicate professional issues, as well as analyzes and conclusions in the field, both with specialists and the general public.
  • The candidate can contribute to new thinking and innovation processes in technology and management of advanced, complex and integrated industrial assets in all life cycle phases.

PROGRAM CONTENT, STRUCTURE AND PROGRESSION:
With a total of 120 credits, this Master's program consists of 20 ECTS Basic Methods (B) which consolidates and continues the mathematical and scientific foundation of the bachelor program. 40 ECTS are core subjects (C), which provide students with a broad and common platform in Industrial Asset Management, as well as completes and expands subjects from the bachelor program. The remaining 60 ECTS consists of 30 ECTS specialization subjects (S), including 10 ECTS specialization elective subjects (SE), and a final master's thesis of 30 ECTS (M).

The faculty will offer a list of recommended specialization electives. The students themselves must check that they have the basic knowledge to be able to take these courses. Other specialization electives must be approved by the department, but students will have considerable freedom to choose appropriate specialization-elective courses, depending on personal interests and career opportunities.

The Master's thesis can be prepared either at the faculty or in cooperation with the industry. Many students base their master's theses on practical projects in different organizations. To be awarded a suitable and relevant topic for a master's thesis, a satisfactory progression must be shown as mentioned in the master thesis regulations. Project proposals for the Master's thesis should be formally pre-approved by an academic staff member in the Industrial Asset Management Group of the Department.

UiS aims to offer all its programs as planned, but the courses must still be subject to resources and a more than minimum number of student admissions. The content and extent of the course must also change over time due to changes in the subject environment, use of new technology, new practices and theories and general social changes.





The course work consists of lectures, project assignments, group work, obligatory and voluntary exercises and laboratory work. The course descriptions provide further information about:
  • Lectures and instructions on academic activities
  • Curricular, compendiums and projects
