Naval Architecture at KTH is a two-year (120 university credits) master program on the advanced level (second cycle) starting every year in late August. The instruction language is English. The programme consists of a core and three optional tracks. In the core you develop your general knowledge and skills in systems engineering and ship design and a theoretical foundation in ship hydrostatics and stability, resistance and propulsion, wave modeling, seakeeping, maneuvering, and ship structures. By choosing one of the tracks you have the opportunity to develop deeper understanding and skills in Lightweight Structures, Fluid Dynamics, or Management. There is also a set of elective courses where you have the opportunity to broaden your education or specialize in sailing craft and other small craft or in other areas suitable for you interests and career goals. Some more details about the core and the tracks are given in Appendix 1.
