Last edit: 26/02/2013
The program Master of Science in Engineering and of Education (CL) is established at KTH and is given in cooperation with the Stockholm University (Teacher Training). The programme gives the student two degrees on the second level, a Master of Science in Engineering from KTH with one of the subject-combinations mathematics/physics, mathematics/computer science and mathematics/chemistry, and a teaching degree from SU with the corresponding specialisations.
The programme consists of 300 higher education credits and is normally divided into 5 years/10 terms.
The programme has three subject-combinations; mathematics/physics, mathematics/computer science and mathematics/chemistry, where the first year of the programme is common to all combinations. Choice of subject-combination is done at the time of application to the programme.
The programme is given mainly in Swedish, but courses in English can occur during the programme. Usage of English course literature may occur during the entire programme.
The programme combines pedagogy, communication and teaching with the Master of Science in Engineering’s ability to assimilate new knowledge and solve problems. This prepares the student for the work market in school as well as in knowledge companies and industry. The programme gives competencies to work as a teacher, especially within high schools and adult education institutions. Also, the Master of Science in Engineering’s work area and carrier path stands open.
The programme consists of the following parts:
Around 180 higher education credits mathematics and physics, computer science or chemistry including subject didactics corresponding to 30 higher education credits within the respective subject-combination.
45 higher education credits in the general education area (pedagogy, didactics, special-pedagogy, child- and youth-science)
Around 35 higher education credits in interdisciplinary courses in relation to technology, communication and learning.
A smaller allocation of about 10 higher education credits for further subject specialisation or studies within the complementing areas, for example, project management
An interdisciplinary degree project within the area technology and learning, about 30 higher education credits.
