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.

Turbomachinery Aeromechanical University Training at KTH

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 (for example. refrigerators and ventilators).

Aeromechanics is one of the main limitations for more efficient, lighter, cheaper and reliable turbomachines, be its jet engines, steam turbines, gas turbines, wind turbines or hydro turbines, as well as various kind of compressors. The programme aims to educate students with high skills to face the challenges within aeromechanics. The programme is led by a coordinator team at KTH. The coordinator team reports back to a steering committee composed of representatives from all parties involved in the programme, both from academia as well as industry.

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 programme 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.

Careers

The 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 doctoral studies in this field.
