Master's programme in Engineering Mechanics
The field of Engineering Mechanics includes all areas of the industrial design process that are based on advanced mechanical analysis of product behavior and functionality. The master’s programme equips students with the knowledge and skills required to focus on reliable and sustainable design by simulations and experiments.
Engineering Mechanics at KTH
The education within the three tracks – Fluid Mechanics, Solid Mechanics and Sound & Vibration – is conducted with involvement from industry and influenced by the latest research. Only one third of the courses are mandatory so students can tailor the course structure to meet their individual aims. This is very useful for those interested in exchange studies. During the first three terms theoretical courses are mixed with more applied project courses. The fourth termis spent working on a five month degree project, where the student has the opportunity to investigate a specific area in-depth. The degree project is performed either in industry or at a university department, in Sweden or abroad. Students doing their degree project close to KTH may also take courses in parallel with their thesis work.
Students who graduate from the Engineering Mechanics programme will be proficient in fluid mechanics, solid mechanics and sound & vibration – areas that are tied to a multitude of industries. Graduates will find a wide range of job opportunities in research and development within industrial companies, consulting firms and research institutes, not only in mechanical engineering, but also in other engineering fields.
