The master's programme in Engineering Mechanics provides a solid and up-to-date knowledge base for the analysis and design of products and processes. Students learn to use advanced simulation and experimental methods to analyse mechanical phenomena ranging from lightweight gases to solid materials. Graduates work in numerous branches of design, testing, computation and research as managers, engineers, consultants, or researchers.

Engineering Mechanics at KTH

The master's programme in Engineering Mechanics covers theory, numerical methods and experimental techniques related to fluid mechanics, solid mechanics and sound and vibration. The curriculum is developed with strong involvement from industry and is heavily influenced by the latest research. It will prepare you with the knowledge and skills for advanced industrial problem-solving in large and small international enterprises and research organisations.

The programme offers three tracks: Fluid Mechanics, Solid Mechanics, and Sound and Vibration. Only one-third of the courses are mandatory, so you have many opportunities to tailor the course structure to meet your interests. During the first three semesters, we mix theoretical courses with more applied project-based courses. The courses typically contain experimental and numerical laboratories and provide you with proficiency in up-to-date experimental methods and software. In the courses, you are given many opportunities to interact with prominent researchers at KTH and companies such as the world-leading truck manufacturer Scania and the train and aircraft giant Bombardier.

The fourth semester is spent working on a five-month degree project, where you will have the opportunity to investigate a specific topic in-depth. You will complete the degree project in industry or at an academic institution in Sweden or abroad. Students doing their degree projects close to KTH may also take courses parallel to their thesis work.

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 Engineering Sciences (at KTH).

Fluid Mechanics track

The students taking the track in Fluid Mechanics will acquire a deep and widely applicable competence in fluid mechanics, preparing them for their future profession.

Fluid Mechanics as a discipline encompasses physics, mathematics, mechanics, and numerical analysis. As our student, you will learn and work with modern theoretical, numerical, and experimental methods to find solutions to various fluid mechanical problems. In addition, extensive high-profile research is carried out within the field at KTH, which will be introduced via interaction with our researchers and teachers.

Fluid mechanics is found everywhere, both in nature and industrial applications, and plays a vital role in developing many future products. Anything that involves a fluid (gas or liquid) is fluid mechanics. These fluids may or may not contain particles such as raindrops in the air, red blood cells flowing in blood or the fibres found in paper pulp flows. The applications are, for example, found in various energy conversion processes such as wind and wave power, food process industry as well as conventional combustion engines, but also in vehicle design, where the focus can be directed towards optimising wings on aircraft or minimising fuel consumption.

Solid Mechanics track

The students taking the track in Solid Mechanics will have their own premises and computer laboratory. Our faculty strongly values communication with the students. Our goal is to provide you with knowledge in all the technical aspects of Solid Mechanics analyses, which are in great demand in many industries. Your future occupation can include working with computational stress and strain analysis, design, development, research, or testing.

Solid Mechanics as a discipline encompasses mathematics, numerical analysis, mechanics and physics. It also involves several aspects of Materials Science and Industrial Design.

Solid Mechanics is an area which is still continuously being developed and researched both nationally and internationally. The driving force in this work is the development of new materials and their utilisation for advanced product functionality, improved durability and reliability, and minimising the adverse environmental impact. At KTH, we devote much effort to developing tools to facilitate the design of new products through a better description of material mechanical properties and formulating appropriate design criteria. In addition, we actively develop and use scientific computational tools widely adopted by the industry for Solid Mechanics and interdisciplinary analyses.

Sound and Vibration track

As a students in the track in Sound and Vibration, you will learn advanced topics in noise and vibration control, especially in the field of vehicle engineering, and you can develop your specialisation through numerous elective courses.

Sound and Vibration as a discipline encompasses mathematics, numerical analysis, mechanics, and physics. It also involves several aspects of sustainable development. The programme has a good balance between theoretical studies and practical applications. It gives you a platform for a successful career in the industry or continuation towards a PhD.

Everywhere in our modern society, we are exposed to sound and vibrations, from the pleasant sound of birdsong or music through sound carrying information to unpleasant or even harmful noise and vibration from, for instance, traffic and construction work. Applications of technical acoustics cover a vast field, from applied mathematics via signal processing to engines, transport and building technology. The Marcus Wallenberg Laboratory for Sound and Vibration Research (MWL) is the largest university centre in northern Europe for sound and vibrations research.
