University West is authorized to issue Doctorate- and Licentiate degrees within three subject areas; Informatics with specialisation in work integrated learning (WIL), Education with specialisation in WIL - and Production Technology.

There are currently more than 30 ongoing research projects conducted by the department of engineering science in close collaboration with industry. The largest part of the research is conducted at Sweden's most modern production technological laboratory, the Production Technology Centre PTC.  

Production Technology West
PTC is jointly managed by Innovatum (a technical development center), University West and regional engineering industry.
Research Team Production Technology West works on the development of production processes in the manufacturing industry. The focus is in welding, machining, additive manufacturing in metals, thermal spraying (surface treatment), automation, inspection (NDT) and control.
