The degree program in Mechanical and Sustainable Engineering at Arcada has a clear focus on developing sustainable products using the principles of mechanical engineering.

You may already have heard about products with smart or functional properties. In many cases the smartness actually lies in the materials. Polymers often offer the perfect combination of properties – the light weight, mechanical strength, elasticity and low costs of processing are just a few benefits of polymer-based material solutions.

Material and engineering specialists are needed in practically every business field, from the manufacturing industry to their supply chains, as well as in the public sector. Mechanical and Sustainability Engineering program opens the doors to a booming field where engineers are in constant demand.
