The Master Thesis is a final project work at KTH. It may be used as a part of your marketing effort when looking for your first assignments in industry. The Thesis work reflects your maturity, knowledge and ability to present material for decision-making purposes in the change process that initiated the project. Key concepts are applied knowledge, ability to develop and work quality.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The Master thesis includes at least information search, literature analysis, theoretical description and methodology as well as analysis of the results.

The time required is based on 20-study weeks full time.

The student describes suggestions for thesis work, by industry or by a teacher. The suggestion includes a background and a short description (about one A4-page).

Together with the teacher the student makes a project plan and a preliminary aim and nature of the work. After the teacher accepts this plan the student is registered.

The thesis work will result in a report based on a scientific work process. The manuscript is presented at a seminar. The examiner decides if corrections are necessary and after these are made no further seminar is necessary.

Intended learning outcomes

As pointed out in the Logistics courses the goal is to reach beyond facts and descriptions and to reach conclusions based on synthesis and analysis.
