Overview

The Molecular Science and Engineering programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology relates to sustainability with an emphasis on energy and environment, safety, and innovation.

The two-year master’s programme in Molecular Science and Engineering provides the students with a broad understanding of chemistry and specialised knowledge and skills in some chosen areas. 

A wide range of topics are covered, including molecular structure, synthesis of molecules, material properties, quantum chemistry, molecular reactions, and surface chemistry. During your studies, you will become acquainted with several advanced analytical techniques. You will also carry out project work and teamwork, as well as practising your written and oral communication.

Career

Specialists in all aspects of molecular science and engineering are always in demand, and career prospects are strong. 

It is a very wide field, with areas including pharmaceuticals, life sciences, medicine and medical engineering, biotechnology, environmental technology, forensics, fine chemicals, consumer products, cosmetics, polymers, pulp and paper, food and agriculture, petroleum, mining and materials, microfabrication, and energy. 

There is also an increased need for consultants with a specialist knowledge of patenting, scientific writing, venture capital and marketing, expertise for governmental bodies and authorities, as well as for Ph.Ds within the area. 

Graduates from the programme have for example gone on to positions as research scientist, Ph.D. student, product manager, quality assurance officer, and sales representative at workplaces such as AstraZeneca, KTH, Outokumpu, RI.SE, and Boston Consulting Group. Program graduates are also found at numerous startups, both as owners and employees.
