Real Estate and Construction Management programme at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology
The first term consists mainly of foundation courses for all students, after which it is possible to specialise according to educational background and interest. In the final term, students will prepare a final degree project. The degree project is a detailed study of a subject area within the scope of the programme. This provides the opportunity to apply the knowledge acquired from the courses in a scientific manner to a problem chosen within the research profile of the track.
The degree project may be carried out at a company in Sweden or abroad, or students may work independently in an area of their own choice, as long as it falls within the research profile of the track. Once completed, the degree project will be presented in a seminar.
The hands-on approach to teaching and learning implies that class projects consist of activities that will provide students with job-related skills. The department’s close links with industry, local professional bodies and a strong alumni network allow the university to continually stay abreast of current developments and integrate these into our course offerings.
The graduates from the programme will have gained in-depth knowledge of construction project management, real estate economics and real estate planning and land law, and will be trained to work in and lead projects in real estate and construction management, collaborate across disciplinary boundaries, work independently, exercise their own power of initiative and create new ideas for a sustainable built environment.
Given the borderless nature of the subjects covered in the programme, graduates are trained for careers in the real estate, government and construction management sectors, both nationally and internationally.
Graduates can expect to work in organisations such as:
