Program Description

Master in Turbomachinery Aeromechanic University Training THRUST

KTH Royal Institute of Technology

The joint Master's programme in Turbomachinery Aeromechanical University Training (THRUST) is a cooperation between KTH, Duke University, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and Université de Liège. The programme offers education of high international standard as well as cultural experience from at least two different countries and a double degree from two universities.

Energy and propulsion are much needed systems in the world for most modern human activities and social development for a sustainable society. Turbomachines produce more than 90% of all electricity in the world, drive the majority of aircrafts and are used extensively as compressors, pumps, etc. in many modern applications (e.g. refrigerators, ventilators, etc).

Programme outline

The programme is highly integrated, first of all regarding student and teacher mobility for certain common lectures, but also related to the extended use of remote teaching by the specialist teachers at all four universities, in conjunction with “face-to-face” and “virtual” interactive workshops and project courses. The educational programme THRUST offers a unique, modern and highly interactive learning material which enhances the student learning process. This, together with the “remote learning” aspects, will also allow for a substantial potential for already active industrial persons to participate in the programme as part of the life-long learning inside their respective companies. Given the nature of the subject of aeromechanics, multidisciplinary skills are fostered.

Career prospects

The THRUST programme offers the students a worldwide unique education at a high academic level, involving researchers/teachers at three European and one US top universities in the area and prepares the students for a direct industrial engagement. Furthermore it paves the way for continued PhD studies in this field.

Application closed

From intake 2015 THRUST is no longer an Erasmus Mundus programme, but will run as a joint Master's programme. The programme is not yet open for application.
