Engineering Mechanics at KTH
The master’s programme in Engineering Mechanics covers theory, numerical methods and experimental techniques related to fluid mechanics, solid mechanics and sound and vibration. The curriculum is developed with strong involvement from industry and heavily influenced by the latest research. An important objective of the programme is to educate students that are well-prepared for advanced industrial problem-solving in both large and small international enterprises as well as in research.
The programme offers three tracks: Fluid Mechanics, Solid Mechanics and Sound and Vibration. Only one-third of the courses are mandatory, which means that the students have many possibilities to tailor the course structure to meet their individual requirements. During the first three terms, theoretical courses are mixed with more applied project-based courses. The courses typically contain experimental and numerical laboratories, and students will gain proficiency in up-to-date experimental methods and softwares. In the courses, the students will be given many opportunities to interact with both industries, such as for example the world leading truck manufacturer Scania, the train and aircraft manufacturer Bombardier and leading researchers at KTH.
The fourth term is spent working on a five-month degree project, where the student has the opportunity to investigate a specific topic in-depth. The degree project is completed either in industry or at an academic institution, in Sweden or abroad. Students doing their degree project close to KTH may also take courses in parallel with their thesis work.
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 Engineering Sciences (at KTH).
Specific requirements for the master’s programme in Engineering Mechanics
- Mathematics (including calculus, linear algebra, numerical analysis and differential equations) equivalent to at least 25 ECTS credits in total.
- Applied mechanics, for example mechanics and physics, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics and sound and vibration or similar equivalent to at least 20 ECTS credits in total.
