Program Description

Master in Aerospace Engineering

KTH Royal Institute of Technology

The main objective of the Master’s programme in Aerospace Engineering is to educate skilled engineers for the European aerospace sector. Graduates of the programme will possess solid theoretical skills in aerospace modelling, analysis and design, as well as the ability to approach and solve complex engineering tasks, and the experience of working in a team. They will also be adept at communicating effectively and working within an international environment – skills that translate to global career opportunities.

Aerospace Engineering at KTH

The Aerospace Master's programme at KTH is very international, with contacts and students from all over the world. Programme director is an astronaut and alumni of KTH, Christer Fuglesang.

The first semester consists of a set of courses to enhance basic skills, as well as give an introduction to various aspects of aerospace engineering. The basic courses are compulsory and constitute almost one third of the course work.

The student then chooses one of four tracks for further specialisation – Aeronautics, Space, Systems or Lightweight Structures. Each track has a few compulsory courses, but most are optional out of a set of recommended courses. There are many possibilities to combine courses between the tracks.

Career

The employment market for European aerospace engineers is strong and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Airbus is the main European aerospace company in the civil sector, however a large part of the work is performed at various subcontractors all over Europe and worldwide.

The space sector is dynamic and evolving, with major projects such as the Galileo navigation satellite project and challenging scientific missions. The European space industry employs about 40,000 people.

A Master’s degree in the aerospace field from KTH is a mark of quality and opens a wide range of career opportunities in industry and research, as well as areas far beyond the aeronautical and space sectors.
