Students graduating with a Master of Science degree specialising in Engineering Materials Science are in great demand in the Stockholm area as well as in the rest of the Sweden, Europe and the world. There are many job opportunities in sectors that are directly associated with metallurgy – such as iron, steel and other metal producing industries (powder metallurgy, hard metal etc.). However as a material specialist with an outstanding knowledge about metals you will find that your knowledge is of importance in the automotive industry, manufacturing industry, aerospace industry, companies in the energy sector, the public sector, the environmental sector or private enterprises.

The education also provides a solid scientific foundation for further research studies at KTH or abroad after graduating.
