Macromolecular Materials at KTH
Students in the master’s programme in Macromolecular Materials will learn of the design, synthesis, characterisation, production and development of polymer and fiber-based materials. The students will be able to handle questions pertaining to the choice of raw materials (renewable versus fossil), choice of production processes, material combinations and manufacturing methods to achieve the desired characteristics of the finished product. Great emphasis is placed on environmental issues, such as environmentally-friendly material production and development of sustainable materials.
The programme provides a solid base in the chemistry and physics of organic materials, as well as their connection to real-life applications. A broad range of courses allows students to customise their own degree profile enabling them to focus on individual areas of interest. The programme also establishes excellent laboratory skills and is closely linked to research at the Department of Fibre and Polymer Technology. Skills such as problem-solving and project work are developed and enhanced in many of the courses, as well as oral and written presentations. A master’s degree project takes place during the final term, it is the culmination of the academic programme and is usually undertaken at KTH, in a company setting or abroad. The topic may be chosen from a list of available projects at the School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health.
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 in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health (at KTH).
Joint master’s programme in Polymer Technology
The programme can also be studied as a joint Nordic Five Tech master’s programme, with a track in Polymer Technology. This double degree programme includes one year of studies at two of the top Technical Universities in the Nordic countries and is applied for separately.
