The master’s programme in Sustainable Production Development from KTH Royal Institute of Technology focuses on the sustainable design and development of production systems. Students acquire skills to create new advanced production systems and transition existing systems focusing on circular material flow, increased digitalisation and automation, energy usage, and new manufacturing technologies.


The programme is run within KTH’s research and education environment for Sustainable Production Development, with courses targeting the environment’s three specific profile areas: production management, production logistics and industrial dependability.

The course content in the programme is based on the close relationship between the development and operation of production systems in the context of digitalisation and sustainability. Different teaching methodologies that place student-centred learning at the core are applied to the programme. Industrial participation is a key component of this programme and is based on proximity to the world-leading manufacturing facilities of Scania CV and AstraZeneca in Södertälje, as well as several SMEs and the infrastructure of Södertälje Science Park. Guest lecturers from industry combined with real-life problems allow students to learn from proven practices.

As the programme is run within the expanding research environment at the Department for Sustainable Production Development, the programme closely interacts with industrial-academic research projects and research labs. Students are also encouraged to take elective courses both with KTH and externally to enhance their knowledge and skills in their areas of interest. Methodological teaching and project work also prepares students for academic and research careers, for those interested in such pursuits.


The Sustainable Production Development programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology 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.
