Naval Architecture at KTH
The programme consists of a core track of studies and three optional tracks. In the core, you develop your general knowledge and skills in ship design, systems engineering, and a theoretical foundation in ship hydrostatics and stability, resistance and propulsion, waves, 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 dynamics and management. There is also room for elective courses, where you have the option of either broadening your education, or specialise further in your chosen track, or study underwater technology and high-speed craft, or other areas suitable for your interests and career goals.
During the first year you build your naval architecture foundation in the three core courses ship design, marine structures, and marine hydromechanics. In parallel you specialise in the three courses within your chosen track. In the second year you can develop your individual profile by, for example, go deeper in the area of your chosen track or in naval architecture by studying underwater technology or high-speed craft. Alternatively you can broaden you education by taking courses from the other tracks or in other topics. Another option could be to take an exchange term at another university. The programme is finalised with a degree project which can be a small research project, an advanced engineering analysis or a design project, and may be performed at a university or a company.
In the Lightweight Structures track you have the opportunity to combine fundamental principles of naval architecture with knowledge about modern composite materials and sandwich structures and related design principles and manufacturing methods. Sweden has been a fore runner in the application of such material concepts in large ship structures and KTH has internationally leading research in this area. What you learn in this track is useful for working with ship structures as well as with aerospace, automotive and other kinds of lightweight structures.
The Fluid Mechanics track develops your fundamental understanding and working skills in uncompressible fluid mechanics, which is the basis for the flow around ships, boats and marine installations. The governing set of partial differential equations, the Navier-Stokes equations, are derived, dissected, simplified and solved. The fundamental principles of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and modern computational tools are introduced. In hands-on projects you will work with modelling and solving real fluid mechanics problems. The knowledge you gain in this track is applicable in ship hydromechanics as well as in general fluid mechanics problems.
The Management track gives you the opportunity to complement your technical skills with knowledge of financial, organizational and managerial aspects, and develop your understanding of the concepts of sustainable development from environmental, social and economic viewpoints. Emphasis is on the ability to manage and control projects, strategies for sustainable development, and management tools and systems analysis methods. The track gives a good foundation for employment as a manager for companies and projects within the maritime sector as well as in other sectors.
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 Naval Architecture
A Bachelor’s degree in Vehicle Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Physics or similar of at least 180 ECTS is required. A Bachelor’s degree only meets the requirements if it has a comprehensive content of mathematics and structural mechanics. This is judged on a case-by-case basis. The qualification must meet the following minimum requirements:
- Mathematics: 25 ECTS or equivalent including linear algebra, calculus, differential equations, numerical methods and programming.
- Structural mechanics and materials: 12 ECTS or equivalent.
