Structure of the education

Each academic year consists of two semesters which are 20 weeks each, and each semester is further divided into two study periods. 

The programme comprises 160,5 credits mandatory courses and 19,5 credits optional courses. Optional courses are preferably selected from the course list (see appendix 1) or from other KTH courses.

The courses should help the student to acquire a solid foundation of mathematics/natural sciences, basic technological sciences and professional skills.


The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in Appendix 1: Course list

Courses are either compulsory or elective. These are scheduled so that primarily two courses are read and completed in the same period.

In school year two and three a number of elective courses can be chosen. The space for elective courses within the programme can be used to study pre-requisite courses for different master's programmes in case there are such requirements.

Grading system

Courses in the first and the second cycle are graded on a scale from A to F. A-E are passing grades, A is the highest grade. The grades pass (P) and fail (F) are used for courses under certain circumstances.

The grading scale is found in each course syllabus.

Participation requires admission to courses within the programme and course registration.

For further studies, special admission requirements for the course are to be fulfilled. Special admission requirements are listed in the each course syllabus.

The degree project is the final part of the education. The project work may begin when special admission requirements for the course are fulfilled.


The degree is entitled “Teknologie kandidatexamen” - Bachelor of Science. The main field of study, Technology, is stated in the text on the degree certificate. The text on the degree certificate states the educational programme, Information and Communication Technology, completed by the student.
