develop and optimise products and production equipment
During the Manufacturing Technology programme, you get to work with development and optimisation of products and production equipment, and you get the opportunity to specialise in areas such as virtual product and proces development, material and process technology, control, and robotics.
The programme aims at providing the students in-depth knowledge within the following areas:
- Process Modelling
- Production Modelling and Monitoring
- Production Planning and Control
- Intelligent Manufacturing
- Engineering Optimisation
- Product Development and Modelling
Within the area of robotics, you get to work with the robot called "Little Helper." "Little Helper" is an autonomous robot capable of navigating without human interaction. "Little Helper" is capable of changing its working tools autonomously thereby adapting to a specific work situation on its own.

PROBLEM BASED LEARNING (PBL)
Aalborg University is famous for its problem based learning where you work in a team on a large written assignment often collaborating with an industrial partner. This study method is also called “The Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning”. The method is highly recognised internationally, and the university is host to a succesful UNESCO chair in Problem Based Learning in Engineering Education and a Centre for PBL and Sustainability approved by UNESCO.
The problem based project work at Aalborg University gives you a unique opportunity to acquire new knowledge and competences at a high academic level in an independent manner. You get to apply theory to practice when you work to solve real-life problems, and you will be well-prepared for your future career.
