Structure of the education
The academic year is 40 weeks and is divided into two semesters, autumn and spring. Each semester consists of two study periods.

The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in Appendix 1: Course list
Courses in the first and the second cycle are graded on a scale from A to F. A-E are passing grades, A is the highest grade. The grades pass (P) and fail (F) are used for courses under certain circumstances.
Conditions for participation in the programme
A prerequisite for studying at KTH is that every term, students must enrol in their courses and register for the term.
Registration for courses requires course selection in LADOK (student registry). Course selection is done either through the course selection web application or through the student’s educational office. Course registration is done by the department giving the course. Students wishing to drop the course should notify the department that is giving the course.
Recognition of previous academic studies
Students may request to be given credit for a course/courses from another college/university within or outside Sweden. KTH’s policy for recognising previous academic studies is available in full in KTH’s regulations atwww.kth.se.
This programme offers opportunities to study abroad. In order to be eligible for studies abroad within the framework of any exchange agreement with foreign universities, students should be enrolled at KTH, have completed at least two years of studies, and be keeping pace with their studies.
Selection is based on weighted average grades in compulsory courses.
For more information, refer to KTH’s regulations athttp://intra.kth.se/regelverk/utbildning-forskning/grundutbildning/utbytesstudier.
The Master’s thesis is a course of 30 credits, which means that the thesis work is equivalent to 20 weeks of full time studies. The thesis may not include other courses (courses with its own course number). The thesis may include seminars, information retrieval, auscultations or other elements, as the examiner or supervisor deems appropriate.
Generally, a major part of their studies, must be completed before the thesis work may commence. At least 60 credits must be completed, including 30 credits of specialization at the advanced level in the main field.
The thesis should be rated on a scale A to F, based on the KTH common assessment qualities and criteria.
Master of Science with a Major in the Built Environmentspecialized in Civil and Architectural Engineering.
In order to obtain a master’s degree, the student must obtain a passing grade in courses that amount to a total of 120 university credits, to which the following must apply
- at least 90 university credits of advanced level courses of the masters programme (including 30 credits of Degree Project work) and at least 15 further credits from a technical field of choice.
- a maximum of 15 credits of other elective courses.
In the event that the master's program is a final part of the degree programme in Civil Engineering and Urban Management or of the degree programme in Energy and Environment, there may be additional requirements according to the corresponding study programmes. For example, a master of science degree in the above degree programmes should include mathematics and science subjects for a minimum of 45 higher education credits.
