About

Production Engineering and Management at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

This programme will provide a strong foundation on which a professional engineering career can be built, as both engineering and management aspects of production and their integration are covered. 

The engineering side includes operation and integration of manufacturing equipment, automation technology, production development tools and methods and software used by engineers. The managerial side covers systematic decision-making, operations strategy, planning, control and management of resources during development and operations of manufacturing systems.

The programme has four focus areas: Production Development, Production Management, Industrial IT Systems, and Industrial Joining. There is a set of mandatory courses for all students of the programme, and courses pertaining to each focus area. Moreover, students have the possibility to combine further elective courses on an individual basis.

After graduating from the programme, students will have:

  • Basic understanding of various dimensions and functions of the broad field of production.
