About

The Naval Architecture programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology provides a strong foundation in Naval Architecture while delivering in-depth skills through specialisations in Lightweight Structures, Fluid Mechanics and Management.  

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Students gain knowledge in the complete processes of designing, modelling, constructing and operating boats, ships, marine installations and systems. Graduates face careers in the maritime sector, related fields or in academia.

The Naval Architecture programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology consists of a core track of studies and three optional tracks. In the core, you develop your general knowledge and skills in ship design, systems engineering, and a theoretical foundation in ship hydrostatics and stability, resistance and propulsion, waves, seakeeping, manoeuvring and ship structures. By choosing one of the tracks, you have the opportunity to develop deeper understanding and skills in lightweight structures, fluid dynamics and management. There is also room for elective courses, where you have the option of either broadening your education or specialise further in your chosen track. It is also an opportunity to study underwater technology and high-speed craft, or other areas suitable for your interests and career goals.

Career 

The multi-disciplinary character of naval architecture, and the structure and curriculum of the programme, make the education relevant for careers in the maritime sector as well as in other fields. Within the maritime sector, Swedish companies are leaders in a number of areas, such as ship design, ship operation, propulsion systems and design and construction of high-technology ships, submarines and small craft. 

Naval architects are also employed by state authorities such as the Swedish Transport Agency and the Swedish Defence Material Administration. Significant international employment markets can also be found in the other Nordic countries, in other parts of the EU and in the large shipbuilding nations in Asia. 

Outside the maritime sector you will find naval architects in for example the automotive industry or as technical consultants. Graduates also go on to pursue a PhD at KTH or other universities nationally and internationally. Research projects can be theoretical or applied and often involve a large degree of international cooperation.
