Last edit: 12/04/2013
Structure of the education
Study years, terms, and study periods are described in KTH’s guidelines, www.kth.se
Structure of the education
The programme’s first three terms consist of theoretical courses, most of which are compulsory for all students. The studies are, to a large extent, project-based works and case studies which means that a large focus will be on training, communication, critical thinking and oral and written presentations. The courses are linked to practical knowledge through collaboration with different companies and authorities. The programme is concluded with a degree project in the fourth term.
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 condition in order to participate in the studies is that the student, each spring and autumn must enrol for the coming term. This is done through “My Pages”, between the 1st and 15th of November and the 1st and 15th of May, respectively.
By completing term enrolment, the student has confirmed their intention to study and participate in the programme. Only after that may the student be able to:
• Register for the term
• Register for courses
• Get reported results
The student registers courses before each term according to KTH’s central guidelines
Conditions for participation in the lectures
For studies in study year 2:
At least 45 higher education credits must be completed from study year 1 by the end of the examination period in August. Students who have not fulfilled this requirement must, in collaboration with a study adviser, create an individual study plan. The main intent with the individual study plan is that the student will complete the remaining elements during the next coming study year. In the study plan, the remaining elements should be included as well as suitable courses from the next study year. Special consideration should be given to the courses’ prerequisites.
Recognition of previous academic studies
Students have the possibility to apply for recognition of previous academic studies from course(s) at another higher education institution or university, both national and international.
KTH’s entire policy for recognition of previous academic studies can be found in KTH’s guidelines, www.kth.se
In certain cases, the Master Thesis can be done abroad.
KTH’s rules for the degree project for the Master’s degree can be found in the KTH Guidelnes, www.kth.se.
Generally, a large portion of the studies must be completed before the degree project can be started.
In order to earn Degree of Master of Science (Two Years), passing grades in all courses which are included in the student’s study plan are required. The study plan must comprise 120 higher education credits which include a degree project consisting of 30 higher education credits, in the second cycle.
