There are four Compentence centres connected to the Department of Machine Design. Centres are organizational forms used for establishing multidisciplinary cooperation across KTH schools and with industry.
CCGEx (Competence Center for Gas Exchange)
CCGEx focuses on research regarding gas management in modern internal combustion engines for vehicles. The aim is to make engines more effective and environment-friendly and decrease fuel consumption without losing performance.
ICES (Centre for Embedded Systems)
ICES is established as a KTH competence centre. ICES includes research, education, networking and innovation related activities.
ITRL (Integrated Transport Research Lab)
ITRL is a resource center and laboratory where scientists and students work together in projects explore future sustainable transport solutions.
Our goal is to make the jump from idea to realized prototype as short as possible and to help businesses get going quickly.
