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 mechanics and management. There is also a set of elective courses where you have the opportunity to broaden your education or specialize inhigh-speed craft, underwater technology or in other areas suitable for you interests and career goals. One for this program specific course is Naval Design where the students as members of a development team during a whole year conceive, design, build and operate a boat or some other technical system for marine applications. Some more details about the core and the tracks are given in Appendix 1.
