About

The joint Polymer Technology master's programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology equips students with comprehensive tools needed to develop future materials in, for example, advanced health care, energy production, green packaging and surface coatings.

Overview

Students study at two Nordic universities and graduate with two degrees. The programme takes full advantage of the strengths and research specialisations of each university.

The Polymer Technology programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology is a collaboration between the five leading technical universities in the Nordic countries (Nordic Five Tech). The programme gives you a unique opportunity to tailor your degree based on your academic interests. You will get to study at two of the partner universities, spending one year at each. You graduate with one master’s degree from each of the two universities. Nordic Five Tech is a strategic alliance consisting of: 
  • Aalto University in Finland
  • Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden (not participating in this programme)
  • Technical University of Denmark
  • KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden
  • Norwegian University of Science and Technology (not admitting new students this programme)

Career

Career opportunities for students from this programme are broad and international. Advanced skills in both fibre and polymer technology combined with a clear environmental focus provide an excellent basis for various careers in industry, government agencies and academia and graduates from the master programme are very attractive for many different industries such as the paper and forest industry, plastics, medical technology, pharmaceutical, coating and adhesive and packaging industry. Material expertise is also needed in many other sectors, ranging from transport to electronics.

The need for graduates with the competence offered by the programme will continue to be excellent and are projected to increase in the future.
