About this program
MSc Aerospace Engineering
The master’s Program in Aerospace Engineering fosters skilled engineers for work in the international aerospace sector. The job market is, however, not at all limited to that specific sector. Graduates from the Program will gain solid theoretical skills in aerospace modelling, analysis and design, as well as a general ability to approach and solve complex engineering tasks and a habit of working in teams.
English language proficiency equivalent to the Swedish upper secondary course English 6 is required. You can meet the requirement by achieving the minimum required score in the following internationally recognised English tests:
- IELTS Academic/IELTS UKVI: An overall score of 6.5, with no section lower than 5.5
- TOEFL iBT: Score of 20 (scale 0-30) in written test, total score of 90. We accept TOEFL iBT Home Edition and Paper Edition. We do not accept TOEFL ITP, TOEFL iBT MyBest, Institutional TOEFL, TOEFL Essentials, or the revised TOEFL Paper-delivered Test.
- Cambridge Michigan Language Assessments: University of Michigan, Examination for the Certificate of Proficiency in English (ECPE)
- Pearson PTE Academic or PTE Academic Online: Score of 62 (writing 61)
- Cambridge ESOL: C1 Advanced (CAE), minimum overall score 180 (points awarded since 2015), or Cambridge English certificate level C1, minimum score 180, or Cambridge English: Advanced

As an aerospace engineer, you can become a scientist or a CEO, a stress analyst or a project manager, a technical support specialist, a salesperson or an astronaut, all depending on the opportunities that come about and the decisions you make.
The employment market for aerospace engineers in Europe is strong and will likely remain so for the foreseeable future. Airbus is the main European aerospace company with more than 130,000 employees, but a large share of the work is performed at various subcontractors all over Europe and worldwide. Students taking the Aeronautics track are particularly attractive to companies working in aerodynamics and aeronautics.
The space sector is dynamic and evolving, with major projects such as navigation satellite systems and challenging scientific missions. The European space industry employs about 40,000 people. As a space engineer, you can, for example, work with development, testing and the operation of satellites, launchers, sounding rockets or other space systems.
Students taking the Lightweight Structures track become well prepared for a future in the development of new products or applications where more sustainable air transportation likely will be a key societal issue for the coming decades. There is a constant need for skilled structural engineers within aerospace, naval and automotive engineering, as well as in other businesses working with more niched manufacturing or innovative design solutions, making the employment market huge.
Today, Systems Engineering is increasingly important in areas like the aerospace sector, the automotive industry and communications systems. A systems engineer could work with the design of the control of the damping in an aircraft’s landing gear, how to find the least costly spare parts management system for an air fleet, or in analysing the reliability of a radar system. A systems engineer is attractive to a large number of industries in various fields.
A master’s degree in the aerospace field from KTH is a mark of quality and opens a wide range of career opportunities in industry and research, as well as within areas outside the aerospace sector.
