Master's Programme in Electric Power Engineering (120 HEC)

HEC stands for Higher Education Credits, and 1 HEC = 1 ECTS

 

Degree
 

To graduate with a master’s degree, a master’s degree student must obtain 120 HEC and meet the following degree requirements:


for students enrolled prior to the fall semester of 2009, (please see “courses-fall08”)
• all compulsory courses (45 HEC) have been successfully completed,
• elective courses corresponding to at least 45 HEC have been successfully completed,
• the final degree project (30 HEC) has been successfully completed,

for students enrolled since the fall semester of 2009, (please see “courses-fall09”)
• all compulsory courses (37,5 HEC) have been successfully completed,
• conditional elective courses (1) corresponding to at least 30 HEC have been successfully completed,
• conditional elective courses (2) corresponding to at least 7,5 HEC have been successfully completed,
• the final degree project (30 HEC) has been successfully completed.
 

In addition to the requirements stated above, a master’s degree student must submit
• the original certificate from previous education (Bachelor’s or similar),
• a proof that all financial obligations (student union fee) to KTH have been met.

 

Course selection
 

The conditional elective and elective courses given in


1. Term 1 must be selected no later than October 1 (please fill out the form “CS-form-T1”),

2. Term 2 must be selected no later than November 15 (please fill out the form “CS-form-T2”), and

3. Term 3 must be selected no later than May 15 (please fill out the form “CS-form-T3”).

Please note that in order to be registered for the courses given in the second year (Term 3), you must have earned at least 45 HEC in the first year (Term 1 and Term 2).

Final degree project/Master’s Thesis

 

The final degree project is worth 30 HEC, and corresponds to five months of full-time study, and is examined at EE. It can be performed at KTH or externally.
A student who has found a project should contact one of the examiners at EE with a letter of one A4 sheet describing the project. The examiner will decide whether or not the project is suitable for a Master's Thesis, and also if the student has the necessary prerequisites for doing the project.
 

The final degree project can be initiated if


for students enrolled prior to the fall semester of 2009,
• the student has completed 30 HEC of compulsory courses, and 37,5 HEC of elective courses,
 

for students enrolled since the fall semester of 2009,
• the student has obtained 67,5 HEC at least 30 of which are from completed compulsory courses, and at least 22,5 HEC from completed conditional elective courses (1),
 

and,
• the student has an agreement with an examiner,
• the student has completed the courses relevant to the project subject, and
• the application form “MT-form” has been filled out, and handed in to the programme coordinator.
 

The examiner helps the student to find an EE supervisor for the project. If the project is carried out in industry, the student will have a second supervisor from industry, with whom the student will have more frequent contact than the EE supervisor, however the student must still update the EE supervisor regarding the status of the project, since the KTH examiner marks the final degree project.
The final degree project is summarised in a written report, and finally presented at a seminar. The final degree project will be given a grade on the scale A-F based on KTH common evaluation criteria (please see  “MT-EC). The final grade will be a synthesis of the evaluation of each criterion.
