Studiehåndbokas program for 2016/2017:

(English)Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering

Brief Facts:

Study Program Code: ING-MAB
Department: Faculty of Technology/Business/Maritime Education
Study Program: Engineering
Campus: Haugesund
Number of Credits: 180
Degree: Bachelor of engineering, Mechanical
Duration: 6 Semesters
Required Reading (Syllabus): www.hsh.no/pensum

Program content:

This is a three-year program leading to a bachelor´s degree. We offer one specialization within mechanical engineering: process and energy engineering. The program is designed to meet the needs and challenges of the future. With a basis in mechanical engineering, the specialization is oriented towards the maritime industry through courses such as sub-sea technology, structural engineering, process engineering, and the distribution and use of natural gas.

We clearly consider the consequences of the fact that within a few years Norway will move from being a primarily oil-exporting nation to a primarily gas-exporting nation, and that the future construction of oil and gas fields will take place below the ocean´s surface.

The Department of Engineering reserves the right to cancel planned elective courses due to insufficient enrollment or available teachers.

Profilering:

Process and Energy Technology and  Design of Marine Structures

Learning outcome:

A candidate with completed qualifications should have the following total learning outcomes:

 

Knowledge:

The candidate:

  • has basic knowledge of design and/or production, materials and knowledge in the field of holistic system development and engineering design. The candidate has knowledge that contributes to the relevant specialization, width or depth.
  • has basic knowledge in mathematics, natural science, relevant social science and economics and how these can be integrated into solutions in the field of safety research.
  • knows the history and development in the field and the role of the engineer in society. The candidate knows the consequences of the development and the use of technology.
  • knows the research and development tasks, relevant methodology and work methods in the field.
  • can update his knowledge in the field, both through information gathering and through contact with professional environments and practice.

Skills:

The candidate:

  • can apply knowledge in mathematics, physics, chemistry and technological topics to formulate, specify, plan and solve technical problems in a founded systematically way.
  • masters engineering design tasks and modelling simulation programs and can carry out solutions and systems.
  • can identify, plan and execute projects, experiments and simulations, and analyse, interpret and use the resulting data, independently and in teamwork.
  • can find, evaluate and utilize technical knowledge critically in the field, highlighting a problem, both written and orally.
  • can contribute new ideas, innovation, quality management and entrepreneurship through the development and implementation of sustainable and socially beneficial products, systems and / or solutions.

General competence:

The candidate:

  • knows in connection with product and solutions the consequences on environment, health, society and economics in the field, remarking ethical and lifetime perspectives.
  • can communicate knowledge in safety to various audiences both in writing and orally in Norwegian and English and can help to demonstrate the technology's importance and consequences.
  • can reflect on her/his professional practice, as well as a team member and in an interdisciplinary context, adapting it to the current work.
  • can contribute to the development of good practice through participation in professional discussions in the field and share her/his knowledge and experiences with others.

Student exchange:

Study programs at SHUC are organized so that students may take 1 - 2 semesters of their education abroad. We have many agreements with other schools in the Socrates/Erasmus and Leonardo da Vinci EU programs. You may read more about SHUC´s foreign exchange offers here.

Admission information:

The application deadline is normally the 1st of March for applicants seeking early admissions / needing special consideration / with foreign education backgrounds / from a Rudolf Steiner School / from an IB program / seeking admissions based on practical competence.

The application deadline is the 15th of April for all ordinary applications.

Check the current Application Handbook from the Norwegian Universities and Colleges Admission Service (NUCAS - Samordna opptak) to verify the dates. See Samordna Opptak for more information on the application procedures.

Admission requirements:

1. Basic university admission requirements + special requirements Mathematics (R1+R2) and Physics (FYS1) - or

2. Completed vocational technical school - or

3. Completed preliminary course for engineering and maritime study programs - or

4. Practical competence + special requirements Mathematics (R1+R2) and Physics (FYS1).

For more information about practical competence, check here.

Further education:

After completed Bachelor's degree, you may continue on a Master's degree in Engineering and thereafter Ph.D. at severeal university-colleges and universities domestic and abroad.

To qualify for our Master in Fire Safety Engineering, you have to take the three courses from the Bachelor in Fire Safety Engineering that is stated in the admission requirements.
