Structure of the education
Academic year, semesters, study periods can be found in KTH's regulatory framework, www.kth.se
Set-up of the education
The programme comprises one year of full-time studies.
The education is given as full-time, half-time or part-time studies.
Half-time studies are intended both for professionals and as a study alternated start on a workplace.
The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in Appendix 1: Course list
The course block comprises two compulsory courses, alternative courses and a compulsory degree project comprising 15 HE credits. The alternative courses should constitute an advanced study within the field that the student has chosen for his first-cycle studies or a broadening in another mechanical engineering field. To allow broadening, no more than 15 HE credits of the courses may be first-cycle studies.
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 precondition for participating in the studies is that the student each spring and autumn must enrol for the coming semester. This is done according to KTH's instructions.
With the enrolment, the student has reported the intention to study and participate in the education.
After that, it is possible for the student to:
- register for the semester
- register for courses
- get results reported
- have the possibility to receive student aid from CSN
In connection with the start of the education, choice of alternative courses for the next study period is made. Each student should, at the first timetabled lecture, sign a course registration list. Students who have registered for a course and then decided not to continue with the course should report this to the responsible teacher as soon as possible.
The student is responsible for making sure that any prior knowledge from earlier courses in the education has been achieved before the new course. Information about entry requirements can be found in the respective course syllabus.
Recognition of previous academic studies
Students may apply to include credit results from course/courses at other higher education institution/university within or outside of the country. Application can be found on KTH's website.
KTH's policy for inclusion can be found in full in KTH's regulatory framework, www.kth.se
Students on the programme have the opportunity to carry out the degree project abroad.
The degree project comprises 15 HE credits of second-cycle studies.
The following applies for the degree project:
• It may be started, at the earliest, after having achieved 24 HE credits and when final grades exist in relevant courses that concern the contents of the degree project
• It may be started after that the assignment has been approved by the examiner
• It is based on the knowledge that has been acquired during the education and should normally be carried out during the spring semester
• It should constitute proof of an independent work comprising theoretical and/or experimental work with accompanying report writing and oral presentation
• The supervisor is appointed by the examiner/programme co-ordinator
KTH's rules for degree projects can be found in KTH's regulatory framework, www.kth.se
To complete a Master of Science in Engineering (1 year), Degree Programme in Product Realisation, passing grades in all courses that are included in the student's study plan are required. The study plan consists of the compulsory courses, the elective courses that the student has opted for and the degree project. The study plan should comprise at least 60 HE credits.
