The master's programme in Engineering Materials Science from KTH Royal Institute of Technology has a cross-functional approach, focusing on the understanding of existing materials, processes and applications, as well as the development of new ones. 


Students can specialise in Industrial Materials, Materials and Process Design, or Sustainable Materials. Graduates have valuable expertise in materials science needed in many industries and sectors, for example, manufacturing, automotive and energy.

The Engineering Materials Science programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology offers specialisation in three tracks: Industrial Materials, Materials and Process Design and Sustainable Materials. At the beginning of the first semester, students choose which track they want to study.


Students graduating from the programme are in great demand in the Stockholm area as well as in the rest of Sweden, Europe and the world. There are many job opportunities in sectors that are directly associated with metallurgy – such as iron, steel and other metal producing industries (powder metallurgy, hard metal etc.). However, as a material specialist with outstanding knowledge about metals, you will find that your knowledge is of importance in the automotive industry, manufacturing industry, aerospace industry, companies in the energy sector, the public sector, the environmental sector or private enterprises. Graduates from the programme can be found at companies such as Sandvik, SSAB, Outokumpu, Swerim and Scania. 

The programme also provides a solid scientific foundation for further research studies at KTH or abroad after graduating.
