The program Master of Science in Engineering and in Education (Civilingenjör och lärare,CL) is established at KTH and is given in cooperation with the Stockholm University (Teacher Training).  The programme gives the student two degrees on the second level, a Master of Science in Engineering and a teaching degree  with one of the subject-combinations in Mathematics and Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry, Mathematics and Technology: Energy and Environment or Mathematics and Technology: Information and communication. The choice of combination of subjects is made at the end of the first year of study.

The programme consists of 300 higher education credits and is normally divided into 5 years/10 semesters.

The first year of the programme is common to all students.  The programme is given mainly in Swedish, but courses in English can occur particulary during the last years. Usage of English course literature may occur during the entire programme.

The programme combines pedagogy, communication and teaching and learning with engineering skills such as ability to assimilate new knowledge and solve problems.  This prepares the student for the work market in school as well as in knowledge companies and industry.  The programme gives competencies to work as a teacher, especially within upper secondary schools and adult education institutions.  Also, the engineering labour market and it´s carrier paths are accesable.

The programme consists of 300 higher education credits and is structually organized according to the following parts:

  • Approximately 185 higher education credits in subject studies, including subject didactics in mathematics and physics, chemistry, energy and environmental science, or information and communication technology.
  • Approximately 60 higher education credits in educational science subjects.
  • 30 higher education credits from an internship, out of which at least 15 higher educational credits from internship as teacher in choosen subjects in upper secondary school.
  • An independent 30 higher education credit research project: an in-debt study in mathematics, engineering or natural science, and in educational science.
