The master's programme in Electric Power Engineering delivers a solid understanding of the electric power engineering domain and skills to contribute to more sustainable energy solutions. It offers excellent flexibility to specialise in electric energy conversion, electrotechnical design, power system control and electricity markets. Graduates find career opportunities at the forefront of advancements in power components and power systems.

Electric Power Engineering at KTH

The global demand for affordable and sustainable resources has created a significant need for electrical engineers and researchers to provide electricity and to build new smart solutions that enable more sustainable energy management. This is the programme for those who want to develop components, systems and management of electric power.

The master's programme in Electric Power Engineering covers the following areas:

  1. Power electronics
  2. Electrical machines
  3. Electrotechnical design
  4. Power system operation and control
  5. Power system planning and electricity markets

This programme enables you to develop a comprehensive understanding of the field and specialise in one or more areas, providing a sound foundation to enter a professional role in industry or academia.

This is a two-year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science. The programme is given mainly at KTH Campus in Stockholm by the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (at KTH).

Year 1

In the first year, the programme provides a good solid understanding of the electric power engineering domain as a whole. The programme starts with fundamental courses in the area during the first half-year, which will constitute the basis for further specialisations later in the programme. The first year also includes courses complementing the technology-focused courses, where you will explore electric power engineering from an environmental, societal and philosophical perspective.

Year 2

The second year (and the end of the first year) is devoted to specialisation within the field. The programme offers a wide range of courses on topics such as electrotechnical design, electric energy conversion (for example, motors and generators), power system design, power system control, power system planning and electricity markets. The second year also includes project courses and the final master’s degree project.

Master's degree project

The final degree project corresponds to five months of full-time studies is carried out at the university or in industry, anywhere in the world. Degree projects undertaken at the university are part of ongoing research and provide the opportunity to build close contacts with a research group. Projects in collaboration with industrial partners are often related to research and development. The project results in a thesis that you also present in a seminar.
