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 2 years of full-time studies (120 higher education credits) including a half-year degree project (30 higher education credits).

Courses

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

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.

Grading scale is found in the course syllabus.

Conditions for participation in the programme

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 respective course syllabus.

Degree project

The degree project is the final part of the education and comprises 30 higher education credits. The project work may begin when special admission requirements for the course are fulfilled.

The degree project should be performed within the area of technology for which the degree is being prepared. The degree project is carried out individually and must be within an area corresponding to the courses which the student has taken. Before the degree project is started, it must be approved both by the KTH examiner and the programme director.

Degree

Students who have successfully completed the two-year Master's programme in Electric Power Engineering (120 ECTS) can apply for a Degree of Master of Science (two years).

To be able to apply for the degree the student has to fulfill the national qualification requirements and have completed courses correponding to 120 higher education credits including:

  • Basic courses in electric power engineering corresponding to at least 24 ECTS have been successfully completed,
  • Advanced courses in electric power engineering corresponding to at least 22,5 ECTS have been successfully completed,
  • Project courses in electric power engineering corresponding to at least 7,5 ECTS have been successfully completed,
  • Complementary courses in electric power engineering corresponding to at least 4,5 ECTS have been successfully completed, and
  • The final degree project (30 ECTS) has been successfully completed.

The main subject for the degree will be stated in the degree certificate.
