The master's programme in Engineering Physics bridges the gap between theoretical physics and practical engineering, seeking to develop future technology. Solving complex problems is an integral part of education, demanding in-depth knowledge of physics, as well as analytical and computational tools. Through specialisations, students become domain experts in one field of physics and go on to advanced industrial R&D positions or PhD studies.

Engineering Physics at KTH

The master's programme in Engineering Physics educates students aiming to work at the forefront of the development of future technology. You will learn about state-of-the-art experimental and computational methods and gain the requisite skills to create new innovations. Graduates from the programme usually find their first jobs as development engineers in innovation- and development-oriented companies or as PhD students in academia.

The programme offers five tracks: Theoretical Physics, Subatomic and Astrophysics, Biomedical Physics, Optics and Photonics, and Quantum Technology. You choose a track directly when you start the master’s programme in Engineering Physics. Each track contains a few mandatory courses and several conditionally elective courses. You must choose at least 40 ECTS credits of courses within your track to obtain deep knowledge and adequate skills within one subfield of physics. Elective courses are an essential part of the programme and give you a great deal of freedom to tailor your own competence profile related to physics.

Biomedical Physics

The Biomedical Physics track focuses on using physics for applications and research in the life sciences, including biology, chemistry and medicine.

Optics and Photonics

The Optics and Photonics track focuses on applications where light and other types of electromagnetic radiation interact with matter.

Quantum Technology

The Quantum Technology track focuses on engineering systems to manipulate and measure quantum states with applications in information processing, secure communication and sensing.

Subatomic and Astrophysics

The Subatomic and Astrophysics track covers numerous fundamental science topics at the forefront of contemporary physics.

Theoretical Physics

The Theoretical Physics track provides a broad education in fundamental theoretical physics and computational physics.
