Students gain skills to create advance production systems and transition existing systems with a focus on circular material flow, increased digitalisation and automation, energy usage as well as new manufacturing technologies.
The Sustainable Production Development graduates from KTH Royal Institute of Technology shape the future development of sustainable production with influential roles in industry and consultancy or through PhD studies.
Rational and cost-effective production systems have been key to industrialisation and wealth for decades.
However, the area is experiencing change and pressure in different dimensions, which are altering the role of production systems. Requirements of more renewable energy use and circular material flow, increased digitalisation and automation, new manufacturing technologies, as well as service integration and the emergence of new business models are among the phenomena shaping production system development and change.
The master’s programme in Sustainable Production Development has strong focus on systems thinking and the underlying need to be proactive in creating production systems with minimal impact on the climate and people while keeping businesses profitable.
The close interaction with world-class industries and an active research environment ensures an up-to-date and relevant education. Therefore, students who complete their studies in the programme will be ready to take up a wide range of industrial positions as well as an academic career.
The issues discussed and the knowledge and skills in focus are required by industrial production systems in most (if not all) parts of the world and provide a very attractive graduate profile. Regardless of sector, companies with production management and change activities are potential employers. Automotive and electrical equipment manufacturers, pharmaceuticals, logistics and other service providers are among typical recruiters of production management graduate profiles. The programme also prepares students who are interested in pursuing advanced research in the subject area.
