Materials and manufacturing engineering is highly interdisciplinary and focuses on the application of materials as well as process and production technologies in high-tech products within various fields, including energy production, the automotive and aeronautical industries, medical devices, and communication.
Study programme focus
The key to develop and optimize products with improved functionality and extended lifetime is the interplay between:
- the internal structure of materials
- process technologies for manufacturing and post-processing of a high-tech product
- product properties
- product performance under its operating conditions (see figure)
The programme enables you to predict, control, and optimize material properties and to analyse and optimize the industrial process technologies, which are relevant for advanced products at both micro and macro scale.
The interplay between materials, processes, products, properties, and performance (see figure) is central to the MSc programme and is reflected in the programme title ‘Materials and Manufacturing Engineering’.
The MSc programme is very application-oriented, and the teaching is highly research-based and relevant to industry. As a supplement to the theoretical courses and numerical simulations, you will have access to experimental facilities and test equipment. Project work is generally inspired by or carried out in collaboration with industry, and you will therefore be working with relevant, real cases throughout the entire study programme.
The study programme contains no actual study line, but rather two focus areas: ‘Materials Engineering’ and ‘Manufacturing Engineering’. When choosing your courses and designing your study plan make sure to include both areas to ensure an ideal combination of both materials and manufacturing engineering.
This subject area focuses on the development and optimization of new materials for applications in high-tech products—whether for macroscopic structures in, e.g., the aeronautical industry or miniature components in, e.g. sensors in microelectronics or medical devices. The internal structure of materials is the key for developing products with improved functional properties, enhanced performance during operation, and extended lifetime. Materials characterization and modelling (at nano and micro scales) is essential to identifying and interpreting the internal structure of materials in relation to mechanical, thermal, and chemical impacts. The understanding of relevant parameters for metals and alloys, polymer materials, and ceramics enables tailoring the material’s internal structure and associated properties, and thereby also the reliability and lifespan of components during operation.
This subject area deals with the mechanical, thermal, physical, and chemical processes constituting the manufacture of a product—including design, fabrication, joining, and post-processing. This subject area covers all processing steps which materials undergo within the fabrication chain before they are used in a product, constructions or component.. Manufacturing Engineering particularly focuses on the development of advanced technologies for, for example, forming and joining, but also deals with product engineering, design, and optimization of products, as well as analysis and optimization of process chains and production systems at micro and macro scales. Process characterization and modelling—including measuring techniques and quality assurance—play an important role, also in the interaction with materials engineering.
The choice of courses in the students’ individual study plan offers a high degree of flexibility. Therefore, you have the opportunity to tailor your own study programme and career by choosing from the wide range of courses offered at DTU.

General admission requirements
Only applicants holding either a relevant Bachelor of Science in Engineering, a Bachelor in Engineering or a Bachelor of Natural Science degree can be admitted to a Master of Science in Engineering programme. The bachelor degree must be less than 10 years old.
The individual MSc Eng programme states in detail which bachelor programmes qualify and whether applicants have to complete supplementary educational activities.
Requirements for supplementary educational activities can equate to up to 30 ECTS credits and are specified in the form of a list of courses under the individual MSc Eng programmes.
The specific requirements must be met before graduating from the bachelor programme or in connection with conditional admission to a particular MSc Eng programme. The courses must be passed prior to the commencement of studies within one year from the conditional admission.
Supplementary educational activities in connection with conditional admission to an MSc Eng programme do not form part of the MSc Eng programme, and partial tuition fees are charged. If the supplementary courses have not been passed within the deadlines specified, the conditional admission to the programme is withdrawn.
The Master of Science in Engineering programmes are offered in English. Therefore applicants must demonstrate proficiency in English (B-level, IELTS, TOEFL- or Pearson test).
