Utbildningens upplägg

The programme begins with a common course packet which gives a solid base for the four specialisations – Power Production, Energy Usage, Nuclear Power Safety, and Solar Energy – which is given mainly during the second term. The third term consists of extended studies within the energy area with a research preparation perspective. The programme is concluded with a degree project during the last term.

Study years, terms, and study period descriptions can be found in the KTH-Handbook.
