The joint Master’s programme in Turbomachinery Aeromechanical University Training offers three tracks related to three mobility options. Students begin their first year at KTH and study the second year at one of the three programme tracks connected to three different universities. The track at ULg and AUTH results in a joint degree, and the track at Duke result in a double degree from KTH and Duke. Note that participation cost vary between tracks.

Year 1 at KTH

Summer Internship

Year 2 - Selection of one of the following tracks

  • AUTH- Structural Vibration and Fatigue
  • ULG    Aeromechanical & Material Design
  • DUKE-  Unsteady Aerodyamics


  • Year 1 at KTH
  • Semester 1: The courses on the first semester aim to give the student the basic understanding on heat, power and propulsion aspects in turbomachinery and develop basic skills for more advanced courses in further semesters. These courses include power generation, fluid machinery, introduction to aeromechanics in turbomachines, basics on measurement techniques, advanced mathematics, introduction to computational fluid dynamics and advanced mechanical vibrations. Whereas a part of the courses during semester 1 and 2 are given as traditional courses at KTH, another part involves lecturing by faculty from the partner universities using web‐based distance teaching capabilities.
  • Mandatory courses
  • Aeromechanics project course Part 1, 6 credits
  • Thermal power systems, 6 credits
  • Turbomachinery, 6 credits
  • Introduction to computational fluid dynamics and mathematics, 6 credits
  • Advanced mechanical vibrations, 6 credits
  • Measurement techniques in aeromechanics, 6 credits

Semester 2: The course in this semester treat more advanced phenomena in turbomachinery. Both the structural as well as the aerodynamic field are treated in depth. Experimental and numerical techniques and methods are studied. The courses include thermal turbomachinery, unsteady aerodynamics, advanced mechanics and finite element methods, advanced aeroelasticity among other elective courses as combustion theory and combustion instabilities and vibrations. In semesters 1 and 2 there are also project courses, in which the student will study in teams to solve a specific industrial project. During the semester 2, close to the Easter break all students will follow a scientific study and seminar session (so‐called Easter course) organized by one of the partner universities also involving industry representatives. Between the second and third semesters, a compulsory Summer Internship is to be performed at the involved industry partners where students combine their learning experiences to basic aeromechanical problems in industry.


Mandatory courses

  • Advanced mechanics and finite element methods, 6 credits
  • Introduction to Unsteady aerodynamics, 7.5 credits
  • Thermal turbomachinery, 6 credits
  • Measurement techniques in aeromechanics, 6 credits
