School of Industrial Engineering and Management

Our core knowledge areas include industrial design and innovation, product and production development, materials development, micro and nano technology as well as industrial economics, organisation and management.

Sparks

A new research center

Starting this year, Center for Mechanics and Materials Design (MMD) will bring together Solid Mechanics and Materials Science and Engineering. The center belongs to ITM but operates at both the ITM school and the SCI school.

Student work online

A vacuum cleaner that takes very little space, a harness for figure skaters and a ladder for stairs - these are some of the student projects at this year's "Kexpo", an exhibition that this year will go - surprise - digital!

Departments 

Activities at the departments of ITM cover the engineering, technological and economic knowledge necessary to be able to develop new products, material and production processes in a sustainable fashion as concerns technical management, financial profitability and the environment.

Energy Technology

The Department of Energy Technology aims at contributing to welfare and development through world class research and education in innovative energy technologies and systems, and promotion of the energy sector transition towards sustainability.

Industrial Economics and Management

Research in economics, business management and organization. Behind the profile of the department is a firm conviction that modern society has a need for expertise in advanced technical depth combined with strong insights into the economy and leadership.

Learning

The department has developed research into learning in order to take a holistic approach to research in learning at all levels, from pre-school to college. Current research areas are digital learning, global competence, engineering education in society, studies in higher education organization (HEOS) and the didactics of science and technology.

Machine Design

Product development is the overarching theme of research at the department. The inter-disciplinary research activities can be summarized in the study of the development process, techniques and design principles as well as those related to physical phenomena.

Production Engineering

The research covers all technologies which mainly applies engineering technical development of products and methods that have direct impact on this production. The area includes all aspects from design to production to assembly of parts into functional products as well recycling issues.

Sustainable Production Development

Our research aims to create sustainable industries. The research is mainly performed in close relationship with industry and is both applied and basic.

Materials Science and Engineering

At Materials Science and Engineering research is conducted on metallic and ceramic materials covering the whole chain Processes – Structures – Properties. The activities include experimental work as well as modeling on different length scales.

Two campuses

The school conducts research at the KTH Campus in Stockholm and at KTH Södertälje. The school's educational programs are divided into civil engineering programs, master's programs and university engineering programs and are taught at both campuses.
