We aim for all students to graduate from the Engineering Design programme with excellent technical and organisational skills in the development and engineering of complex and heterogeneous technical products. Each student follows one track: either Machine Design, Mechatronics or Internal Combustion Engineering.

Engineering Design at KTH

The first year starts with a set of courses intended to give an introduction to various aspects of engineering design and to enhance basic skills within your track (Machine Design, Mechatronics or Internal Combustion Engineering). Thereafter, the courses deepen your specialisation, culminating in the advanced project courses, tackling real-life industrial and/or research problems. Your degree will conclude with an individual thesis project, on which you work closely with local industry or a KTH research group.

Topics covered

Machine design, Systems engineering, Machine elements, Mechatronics, Embedded systems, Internal combustion engines


The Engineering Design programme gives you the competence and ability to identify complex engineering and technical problems and to solve them using modern methods and tools. You will be well prepared to work in product development, engineering design or research within leading companies or academia. Some key industries and sectors involve vehicles (road, rail, air, off-road), industrial automation (robotics, processes, electronics, tools), and medical engineering (aids for the disabled, life-support systems, simulators).
