Utbildningens upplägg

The study year for KTH’s part of the programme is divided into four periods. The study periods correspond to about seven weeks of studies with at least 33 study days. Every study period is followed by an exam period consisting of two dispensable days and at least five exam days.

The programme comprises 1.5 years of full-time studies (90 higher education credits), and a half-year degree project (30 higher education credits). The degree project is normally performed during the spring of the second year.

An individual study plan is prepared for each student.


Utbildningen sker i kursform. Kurslistor finns i Bilaga 1: Kurslista

The courses are classified into Core courses, Concentration courses and Transversal courses (developing abilities like scientific communication, project management and language skills). As a general rule, it is advisable that the student completes 24 ECTS credits from core courses, 48 credits from concentration courses and 18 ECTS credits for transversal courses.


För kurser på KTH används en sjugradig målrelaterad betygsskala A-F som slutbetyg för kurser på grundnivå och avancerad nivå. A-E är godkända betyg med A som högsta betyg. Betygen godkänd (P) och underkänd (F) används som slutbetyg då särskilda skäl föreligger.

Grades from the different institutions are transferred into the ECTS grading scale.

Villkor för deltagande i utbildningen

For promotion to study year two, the student must have received at least 45 higher education credits from the first year.


According to the higher education ordinance, a student who has gone through certain higher education with passing results has the right to receive recognition of their previous academic studies for the corresponding programme at another higher education institution. The Director of Studies at the School of Electrical Engineering makes the decisions about recognition of complete courses. Recognition of elements of previous courses can be decided by the examiner.

The application for recognition of previous academic studies is submitted to the local programme office on a special form.

Reference to the policy, KTH-handbook 2, section 13.3.


All students study in two different countries during the program, following the directions for mobility in Erasmus Mundus from the European commission.


The degree project comprises 30 higher education credits and is carried out individually and must be within an area corresponding to the courses which the student has taken. In order to start the degree project, the student must have passed at least 60 higher education credits.

The degree project is graded, according to the A-F scale, based on three KTH-common assessment principles; engineering-related and scientific content, process and presentation.


Students who have successfully completed a two-year Master's programme (120 ECTS) will be awarded a "Teknologie masterexamen", translated into English as "Degree of Master of Science (two years)". Each student will receive a degree from each participating university, a so-called dual degree.
