Structure of the education
The study year for KTH’s undergraduate programme is divided into four periods. The study periods correspond to about seven weeks of studies with at least 33 study days. Every study period is followed by an exam period consisting of two dispensable days and at least five exam days.
The programme comprises 1.5 years of full-time studies (90 higher education credits), and a half-year degree project (30 higher education credits). The programme includes 42-45 higher education credits of obligatory courses and, furthermore, 12-15 higher education credits of conditionally obligatory courses, depending on the chosen profile. Other courses are chosen from the course list. The degree project can be done whenever during the second study year.
The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in Appendix 1: Course list
Beyond the course list, the student can, after assessment, be granted to study other courses which are offered within the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering programme.
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
For promotion to study year two, the student must have received at least 45 higher education credits from the first year.In order to receive the degree, the student must fulfil the criteria for at least one of the profiles.
Recognition of previous academic studies
According to the higher education ordinance, a student who has gone through certain higher education with passing results has the right to receive recognition of their previous academic studies for the corresponding programme at another higher education institution. The Director of Studies at the School of Electrical Engineering makes the decisions about recognition of complete courses. Recognition of elements of previous courses can be decided by the examiner.
The application for recognition of previous academic studies is submitted to the programme office on a special form.For more information about Recognition of previous academic studies, see the KTH regulations.
Exchange studies are available through a number of double-degree agreements between KTH and other European universities. The Degree project (Master’s Thesis project) can be performed abroad providing the student has an advisor at KTH and one at the receiving institution and that the work follows the KTH regulations for a Thesis project.
The degree project comprises 30 higher education credits and is carried out individually and must be within an area corresponding to the courses which the student has taken. In order to start the degree project, the student must have passed at least 60 higher education credits.
The degree project is graded, according to the A-F scale, based on three KTH-common assessment principles; engineering-related and scientific content, process and presentation.
Students who have successfully completed a two-year Master's programme (120 ECTS) will be awarded a "Teknologie masterexamen", translated into English as "Degree of Master of Science (two years)".
For the degree, the following is required:
- At least 90 higher education credits from the course list
- All obligatory courses and at least two out of the three conditionally elective courses for at least one of the profiles
- Between 6 and 12 higher education credits from the list of non-technical (TMS) courses
