Electric Power Engineering at KTH

The Electric Power Engineering programme is taught in English and focuses on four subject tracks, with a final degree project in the second year: Electric Power Systems, Electrotechnical Design, Electrical Drives, and newer IT-related areas of competency. This programme will enable the Master’s student to develop a comprehensive understanding of the field, providing them with the ability to enter a professional role in industry, academia or research and development



For decades, KTH and Sweden have been at the forefront of advancements in grid systems, power component technologies and automation solutions. These areas are in constant need of fresh ideas and successful ways in which to integrate academia, research and industry. A two-year Master’s degree in Electric Power Engineering provides students with the knowledge and training necessary to excel in this new era of utility and power requirements, and offers a wide selection of career options. The programme equips engineers with the skills necessary to understand, analyse and operate individual components relating to power systems, and their integrated and holistic functions.

This programme is designed to utilise KTH’s strong ties with research and industry leaders like ABB, Vattenfall, Fortum, Bombardier and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology, offering students an excellent opportunity to apply their knowledge in practical, industrial applications.
