The Engineering Physics programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology educates students aiming to work at the forefront of the development of future technology. Students will learn about state-of-the-art experimental and/or computational methods and will be trained to have the requisite personal skills to create new innovations. Graduates from the programme usually find their first jobs as development engineers in innovation- and development-oriented companies or as PhD students in academia.
The programme offers five tracks: Theoretical Physics, Subatomic and Astrophysics, Biomedical Physics, Optics and Photonics, and Quantum Technology. You choose a track directly when you start the master’s programme in Engineering Physics. Each track contains a few mandatory courses and students must also choose a minimum of 25 ECTS credits from a list of conditionally elective courses within each track. The fully elective courses are an important part of the programme and give the students a great deal of freedom to tailor their own competence profile related to physics.
Graduates of this programme can look forward to ample job opportunities, both in industry and academic research. Please see the track information for details about opportunities for graduates from the different tracks.
