Engineers with knowledge of both materials and process technology are in great demand, both in Sweden and elsewhere. In Sweden, at present, a number of specialist degree programmes within these knowledge areas are offered.
Materials engineering programmes are about being able to choose the right materials, develop and manufacture new materials for special applications. Whether you want to work with material properties in, for example, the automotive, electronics or engineering industries, or if you are passionate about environmental issues and sustainable development, there are many opportunities to get an interesting job.
Jernkontoret itself supports certain degree programmes since the graduate engineers, to a large extent, will be amongst the employees of the future within the steel industry.
