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. The theoretical courses are mixed with more applied project courses and the final degree project is often performed at a company in Sweden or abroad.


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.
