Masters in Transportation Engineering in Stockholm in Sweden. Vehicle Engineering is a broad area of engineering science driven by an ever-increasing degree of mobility in the world. Transport, however, must face the challenge of minimising its environmental impact, requiring new, innovative solutions and capable engineers. This is a field that will continually demand specialists in order to make the transition to sustainable road and rail transport in the future. Programme outline The programme includes two specializations; Road vehicles and Rail vehicles. The Road vehicle specialization includes all road vehicles with a main focus on cars, trucks and buses. In the Rail vehicle specialization, the system aspect is very important, as the different parts of a railway system – vehicle, track, electrification and signalling – all strongly influence each other. The Vehicle Engineering Programme is taught in English and is based on lectures, assignments, simulations and experiments. Degree project To finalize your studies you perform an independent thesis work during a five month period. This can either be performed at a university or, more commonly, at a company. The student is encouraged to actively search for a suitable thesis project in industry, and KTH will provide assistance and suitable points of contact. Career prospects The programme provides an excellent basis for pursuing a career in the global vehicle industry, at consulting companies as well as at universities. The co-operation between the Swedish vehicle industry and the department of Vehicle and Aeronautical Engineering is very close, and there are several major ongoing research programmes where KTH, key manufacturers and the transport administration are involved.
