Graduates have a solid theoretical foundation in aerospace modelling, analysis and design, as well as teamworking skills and a general ability to approach and solve complex engineering tasks.
The Aerospace Engineering programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology offers students a broad, challenging and internationally acknowledged education. It provides skills in aerospace modelling and design, solving complex engineering tasks, collaboration with others in project work, and communicating results and findings in a professional manner. The programme at KTH is highly international with contacts and students from all over the world. The astronaut and KTH alumnus Christer Fuglesang acts as the chairman of the Progamme’s Advisory Board.
Students taking the Lightweight Structures track become well prepared for a future in the development of new products or applications where more sustainable air transportation likely will be a key societal issue for the coming decades. There is a constant need for skilled structural engineers within aerospace, naval and automotive engineering, as well as in other businesses working with more niched manufacturing or innovative design solutions, making the employment market huge.
Today, Systems Engineering is increasingly important in areas like the aerospace sector, the automotive industry and communications systems. A systems engineer could work with the design of the control of the damping in an aircraft’s landing gear, how to find the least costly spare parts management system for an air fleet, or in analysing the reliability of a radar system. A systems engineer is attractive to a large number of industries in various fields.
A master’s degree in the aerospace field from KTH is a mark of quality and opens a wide range of career opportunities in industry and research, as well as within areas outside the aerospace sector.
