The Vehicle Engineering programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology deals with vehicle design, functions, requirements and the evaluation of different types of road and rail vehicles. 

About

Vehicle dynamics properties and the interaction with the road/track as well as active systems for safety, monitoring and comfort are important topics within the programme. The vehicles as part of transport systems and the interaction with society are also dealt with within the programme.

The Vehicle Engineering programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology includes two specialisations; Road Vehicles and Rail Vehicles. The Road Vehicle specialisation includes all road vehicles with a main focus on cars, trucks and buses. In the Rail Vehicle specialisation, the system aspect is very important, as the different parts of a railway system – vehicle, track, electrification and signalling – all strongly influence each other. The programme is based on lectures, assignments, simulations and experiments. 

Career

The Vehicle Engineering programme provides an excellent basis for pursuing a career in the global vehicle industry, at consulting companies, transportation authorities, fleet operators as well as at universities and institutes active in this area. The co-operation between the Swedish vehicle industry and the Department of Vehicle and Aeronautical Engineering is very close, and there are several major ongoing research programmes in which KTH, key manufacturers and the transport administration are involved.
