Learning outcomes

The Swedish Higher Education Act
Second cycle programmes shall imply acquiring deeper knowledge, skills and abilities in comparison with first-cycle programmes and shall, in addition to that which applies for first-cycle programmes,
• further develop the student’s capacity for independent integration and application of knowledge,
• develop the student’s ability to handle complex occurrences, issues and situations and
• develop the student’s capacity for professional practice that places high demands on independence or on research and development work

The Higher Education Ordinance qualification descriptor
Knowledge and understanding
After completing their education, the student shall:
• demonstrate knowledge and understanding of materials science, comprising broad knowledge within the field and substantial specialised knowledge within certain parts of the field in addition to specialised insight into relevant research and development work, and
• demonstrate specialised methodology knowledge within materials science.

Skills and abilities
After completing their education, the student shall:
• demonstrate the ability to critically and systematically integrate knowledge and to analyse, judge and handle complex occurrences, issues and situations, even with limited information,
• demonstrate the ability to critically, independently and creatively identify and formulate questions, to plan and execute – using appropriate methods – advanced assignments within specific deadlines and thus contribute to the development of knowledge, and to evaluate such work,
• demonstrate the ability in both national and international settings to orally and in writing clearly describe and discuss his/her conclusions and the knowledge and arguments on which these are based, in dialogue with different groups, and
• demonstrate such skills as are required to take part in research and development work or for independent work for another advanced enterprise.

Judgement and approach
After completing their education, the student shall:
• demonstrate the ability, within materials science, to make judgements in relation to relevant scientific, social and ethical factors, and to demonstrate awareness of ethical issues in research and development work,
• demonstrate an insight into the opportunities and limitations of science, the role these play in society and the population’s responsibility for how this is applied, and
• demonstrate the ability to identify his or her own need for further knowledge and to take responsibility for his or her own development of knowledge.

Degree

Master's Degree (120 credits).

To qualify for a Master’s degree with specialised study in the field of materials science, the student must have completed all courses within the programme of 120 higher education credits. Moreover, the student must have completed a Bachelor’s degree or professional qualification for minimum 180 higher education credits or equivalent degree abroad.
