Master's programme in Aerospace Engineering
The main objective of the programme in Aerospace Engineering is to educate skilled engineers for the European aerospace sector.
As an engineer graduated with a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from KTH you will possess good theoretical skills in aerospace modelling, analysis and design; ability to approach and solve complex engineering tasks; experience of project work and teamwork; experience of working in an international environment, and ability to communicate effectively.
The structure of the programme consists of a set of courses to enhance basic skills as well as give an introduction to various aspects of aerospace engineering.
The basic courses are compulsory and constitute about one third of the course work. Optional courses to be selected are grouped together in four different packages corresponding to a further specialization in the direction of aeronautics, space, structures or systems.
The employment market for European aerospace engineers is strong and will remain so for the foreseeable future.
Airbus is the main European aerospace company in the civil sector, however a large part of the work is performed at various subcontractors all over Europe and also worldwide.
Government spending in the space sector is also increasing with major projects such as the Galileo navigation satellite project.
