Master of Science in Engineering
The Master of Science in Engineering programmes are comprised of three consecutive blocks. The first consists of a basic block of courses in Natural Sciences and Mathematics. This is followed by a block of courses in Applied Engineering Sciences. The third block includes optional and compulsory courses within a chosen area of specialisation.
The main language of instruction in all these programmes is Swedish.

Final Degree Project work
The final degree project is intended to demonstrate
a) the student’s ability to apply knowledge acquired during the course of studies, and
b) that the student is able to carry out a specific task in an independent manner.
The final degree project for the MSc programmes consists of work corresponding to twenty weeks of full-time studies, 30 credits. The final degree project for the BSc programmes has a duration of ten weeks, 15 credits. The final degree project is normally carried out as the final part of each educational programme.
The final degree project may be undertaken at KTH, at an industrial site, in a private company, or at a research institute in Sweden or abroad. However, a faculty member from KTH must always act as the supervisor. The project work may be of a theoretical and/or experimental nature, depending on the student's background and interests. The project is summarised into a written report and finally presented at a seminar.
The student is responsible for finding a suitable degree project among those offered by departments or companies. Before the project work starts it must be approved by the supervisor at KTH. The final courses and the project work should together constitute the student's individual profile of skill and proficiency.
The final degree project should be performed individually or in pairs. If students work together, each student's work should meet the demands on an individual final degree project. The thesis is generally written in Swedish or English and should always include an abstract in English.
Students who have successfully completed the study programme will be awarded the Swedish professional degree 'Civilingenjörsexamen', translated into English as 'Degree of Master of Science in Engineering, Degree programme in (name of the programme)'.
After completion of the study programme, the student should fill out an Application for diploma in order to receive a diploma.
