Master of Welding Engineering 

Due to the increasing complexity of industrial production processes of welding technology and the growing number of rules and regulations governing them, there is an increasing demand for trained welding engineers. The Advanced Master of Science in Welding Engineering covers all relative areas and prepares the student with experience and solid skills.

About the programme

This programmes prepares graduated students to carry out a wide range of vital duties within the field, learning many of the foundational skills to research, design, produce, maintain and asses quality welding. This advanced master's programme is the ideal stepping-stone to a high-level job within the industry and enables the student to solve problems and work efficiently and safely.

The programme is indispensable and obligatory for engineers seeking to work as Responsible Welding Coordinators. Engineers interested in R&D, quality, design, production, maintenance and particularly welding metallurgy will find the programme instructive and comprehensive.

Programme structure

In this one-year programme, courses are organised in four clusters:

  • Welding processes and equipment
  • Materials and their behaviour during welding
  • Construction and design
  • Fabrication, applications engineering
Career perspectives

This programme opens up a wide spectrum of professional possibilities and exposes you to an extremely varied field of action: petrochemistry, the aviation and aero-space industry, civil construction, assembly plants, the nuclear sector, shipping and logistics, general construction, and more.

As a welding engineer, you will carry out a wide range of duties, including research, design, production, maintenance, sales and quality inspection.

There is a real need for experts with the capability to conduct research, carry out quality control analyses, and perform inspections, monitoring and certification in the broad field of welding. Some graduates start a career as independent consultants.
