Involved department

Department of Engineering Mechanics


Mechanical Engineering at KTH is ranked 39 in QS subject ranking.


There are more than twenty professors involved in the Engineering Mechanics programme as course instructors and supervisors for degree projects. Many of them are well-known world-leading scientists and/or recognized for their teaching skills and pedagogical achievements.


The Engineering Mechanics programme at KTH is strongly linked to the Odqvist Laboratory of Experimental Mechanics. This laboratory is equipped with the latest experimental devices for testing at different lengths scales ranging from full-scale product testing to testing at the microscale. The Engineering Mechanics programme also has access to a multitude of state-of-the-art software for computational mechanics.
