Deadline: January 15, 2014

There are very few industries that do not rely on machines and improvements in technology to help them deliver their goals. The successful integration of cutting-edge engineering and a holistic, human approach to systems operations is a crucial area that will become increasingly important in the future.

Career prospects
A two-year Masters degree in Systems, Control and Robotics gives students the opportunity to utilize a unique cross-section of courses from different disciplines integrating Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Communication to create a comprehensive education. As engineers require extensive training in the design and analysis of complex technical systems, this Masters programme provides a strong foundation in both theoretical and practical systems operations. It also allows students to explore the boundary-pushing world of robotics. This is an exciting, essential field one that is rapidly becoming more sophisticated and pivotal in our societies. From advancements in health care and the vehicle industry, to providing a variety of important functions in all forms of manufacturing, robotics and their systems allow engineering students to combine several educational areas in new, innovative ways.


The Masters programme is taught in English and involves team collaborations and projects emphasizing the academic and cultural diversity of the participants with the collective aim of successful project management, problem solving and a hands-on approach to learning. The coursework is based around four areas of focus: Robotics and Autonomous Systems (AS), Networked Control Systems (NC), Systems and Control Theory (SC) and Electric Energy Systems (ES). Students will be able to incorporate and use KTHs strong ties with research and industry leaders for their thesis project in the second year, providing them with excellent career contacts.

Degree project
The Master's thesis project can be started upon completing 60 credits of the programme. The thesis work is typically carried out during the second half of the second year, either in industry or at a department at KTH or elsewhere. The thesis work can be combined with course work. For students who wish to pursue a career in research, the thesis project offers a great opportunity to come into close contact with a research group and for those that wish to go into industry it serves as a good chance to interact with a prospective employer.


A Bachelors degree (or equivalent) of at least 180 ECTS. Specific requirements as specified by each Masters programme.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5
