Engineering Design at KTH
The master’s programme in Engineering Design provides tools, models and methodologies for the design of mechanical products and for the design of industrial systems. Applicants to the programme choose one of three specified programme tracks: Combustion Engineering, Machine Design or Mechatronics.
The first term starts with a set of courses that provide an introduction to various aspects of engineering design and enhance basic skills within the chosen track. For the second and third term, the courses deepen the specialisation, culminating in the advanced project courses that tackle real-life industrial challenges and/or research problems in close cooperation with industrial companies. Throughout the programme, traditional lectures as well as exercises, seminars, assignments and laboratory experiments are learning tools in the courses.
Your degree will conclude with an individual degree project, on which you work closely with local industry or a KTH research group.
Machine Design track
Students on the Machine Design track learn how to create, select, dimension, optimise and verify cost-effective technical quality products. This is done with efficient aid and support from industrially relevant and state-of-the-art tools and methods. The track focuses on the development and engineering of innovative technical systems and high-performing components, and relies on a holistic design approach as well as on specialist knowledge.
The use of electronics and software to enhance mechanical products is here to stay, and its complexity is growing rapidly. The functionality and performance of traditional mechanical systems is often dependent on mechatronics – the synergistic integration of mechanical, electrical, control and software engineering.
A challenge facing many engineers today is the sheer scale of information exchange and communication required in product development projects. This particularly affects Mechatronics engineers, since their work requires not only reliance on their multidisciplinary knowledge and skills, but also an increasingly broad awareness when interacting with design teams across other disciplines. Students on the Mechatronic track gain the skills needed to handle these challenges.
Combustion Engineering track
Students in the Combustion Engineering track will learn how to develop internal combustion engines in the context of increasingly strict emissions legislation. The track focuses on sustainability issues, and emphasises engine performance, including fuel efficiency and exhaust emissions. Thermodynamics, supercharging, combustion, emission formation and emission control are addressed.
This is a two year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science. The programme is given mainly at KTH Campus in Stockholm by the School of Industrial Engineering and Management (at KTH).
