The Engineering Design programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology covers product development and its growing complexity driven by rising demands for functionality, sustainability and innovation.  

Visit the official programme website for more information


Students in the programme acquire essential technical and organisational skills for the successful development and engineering of a wide range of technical products. The programme consists of two tracks offering specialised expertise in key areas of engineering design: Machine Design and Mechatronics.

The Engineering Design programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology provides tools, models and methodologies for the design of mechanical products and the design of industrial systems. Applicants to the programme choose one of two specified programme tracks: Machine Design or Mechatronics.


The master’s programme in Engineering Design gives you the competence and ability to identify complex engineering and technical problems, and to solve those using modern methods and tools. You will be well prepared to work in product development, engineering design or research within leading companies or academia. Some key industries and sectors for graduates involve vehicles (road, rail, air, off-road), industrial automation (robotics, processes, electronics, tools), and medical engineering (aids for the disabled, life-support systems, simulators). 

Graduates from the programme are found at Scania, ÅF, ABB, Saab, Bombardier, Atlas Copco, Volvo Construction Equipment, Volvo Cars, Electrolux, and smaller medical engineering and consulting companies. The programme also opens the way for a possible career in academia, as many graduates go on to doctoral studies.
