Engineering Design at KTH

The programme is structured to enhance technical skills, as well as to give an introduction to various aspects of engineering design. The specialisations include a set of advanced courses which are compulsory and constitute two-thirds of the total course work.

The first year starts with a set of courses to give an introduction to various aspects of engineering design and to enhance basic skills within your specialized Track (Machine Design, Mechatronics or Internal Combustion Engineering). Thereafter, the courses deepen your specialization, culminating in the advanced project courses, tackling real-life industrial and/or research problems.  Your degree will conclude with an individual thesis project, working closely with local industry or a KTH research group. 

Career

The Engineering Design programme gives you the competence and ability to identify complex engineering and technical problems, and to solve them using modern methods and tools. You will be well prepared to work in product development, engineering design or research within leading companies or academia.

Some key industries and sectors involve vehicles (road, rail, air, off-road), industrial automation (robotics, processes, electronics, tools), and medical engineering (aids for the disabled, life-support systems, simulators).
