Department of Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering covers a broad spectrum within applied science and engineering. Our research and education focuses on developing or evaluating the products available in both the private and public sectors.

It may be for example environmentally friendly combustion engines, ergonomic hand tools, and lightweight materials, dental implants with superior qualities as well as effective training and rehabilitation equipment.

Engineering education at both undergraduate and postgraduate level

The department is responsible for engineering education at both undergraduate and postgraduate level in biomechanics and mechanical engineering as well as in CAD technology. We provide education in: biomechanics, computer aided design, industrial design, materials engineering, production, and engineering mechanics.


Approximately 20 people, both male and female, with varying nationalities and levels of education, work in the department. Both education and research are characterised by constant contact with industry and close cooperation with national and international research environments.

Well-equipped laboratory

With regards concerning support within research and education, the department has at their disposal, a well-equipped virtual and effective laboratory. Here you will find the latest CAD tools, a physiology and biomechanics laboratory, prototype manufacturing equipment, automation, industrial design and robotics laboratory, metal and wood workshops, tensile testing and metallographic equipment as well as a Rydberg laboratory.
