Mechanical Engineering

Earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense mental effort. A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your master’s degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree.

A PhD in Mechanical Engineering helps you understand the concepts in engineering better hence enabling you to give solutions to complex mechanical problems. Through this training, you can provide advisory services to mechanical engineering companies especially in different mechanical problems.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.

PhD in Mechanical Engineering Innovation in product design and manufacturing has become a major driver for industrial competitiveness and profitablity in recent years. As enabling technologies become more easily accessible, engineers are faced with increasing demands for designing and producing more complex mechanical devices to serve the needs of the society. Next generation engineering products will be 'smart' with many functionalities; they will be made of new materials; they will increase energy efficiency and reduce environmental impact; they will vary in size from nano to mega scales; and they will be more closely integrated with information processing systems. Also as mechanical systems are becoming increasingly complex to analyze and expensive to experiment, more emphasis will have to be placed on computer aided analysis, design, verification and manufacturing. Our research program in mechanical engineering responds to these trends and focuses on basic research related to materials science and process engineering, product design, and information integrated manufacturing processes. In doing so applications to different physical processes are studied (e.g. energy systems, bioengineering, metal forming, polymer processing, discrete part manufacturing to name a few). Research Areas...

Implementation of complex nautical operations today requires interdisciplinary and varied expertise, including research expertise, for safe and efficient planning, implementation and evaluation of nautical operations. Academic content Nautical operations is comprised of two disciplines: Nautical, which covers the navigation, manoeuvring and transport of floating vessels, and operations, which indicates that the PhD programme will focus on applied research to support, improve and develop the activities that are being implemented. The operational perspective includes both strategic, tactical and operational aspects. Strategic levels including choosing the type and size of a fleet of vessels. Tactical aspects concerning the design of individual ships, choice of equipment and personnel. The operational aspects include the planning, implementation and evaluation of nautical operations. It will be a common subject that is offered at all four institutions. Further academic content will be linked to individual focus areas at the four institutions: Maritime Organizational Safety Management and Fire Safety and Evacuation Research at HSH Maritime Operations and Sensor Technology at UiT Maritime Human Factors together with Maritime Logistics and port operations at HSN Maritime Design and Product Development at NTNU The PhD programme consists of: The academic training component (30 credits). This is made up of topics at PhD level divided into compulsory (15 credits) and elective (15 credits) components. The core areas of the academic training have two compulsory and eight elective topics based on the programme's overall profile. The core areas ensure the continuation of the central themes in the maritime-related undergraduate and graduate programmes at the four institutions. The research component thesis is an independent research or research and development project, that must meet international standards with regard to ethical requirements, academic standards and methodology within the field of nautical operations.
