The master's programme in Macromolecular Materials equips students with comprehensive tools needed to understand the relationships between molecular structure and macromolecular and material properties. Students gain skills to develop future materials in areas such as advanced health care, energy production, bio-based composites, green packaging and surface coatings. Graduates work in industry, start-up companies, consultant companies and research institutes.

Macromolecular Materials at KTH

As a student in the master's programme in Macromolecular Materials, you will learn about the design, synthesis, characterisation, production and development of polymer and fibre-based materials. You will acquire the knowledge and skills to manage the selection of raw materials (renewable versus fossil), choice of production processes, material combinations and manufacturing methods to achieve the desired characteristics of the finished product. We place great emphasis on environmental issues, such as environmentally-friendly material production and the development of sustainable materials.

The programme provides a solid base in the chemistry and physics of organic materials, as well as their connection to real-life applications. A broad range of courses allows you to customise your degree profile to focus on your areas of interest. The programme also establishes excellent laboratory skills and is closely linked to research at the Department of Fibre and Polymer Technology. Skills in problem-solving and teamwork, as well as oral and written presentations, are developed and enhanced throughout the courses.

This is a two-year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science. The programme is given mainly at KTH Campus in Stockholm by the School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health (at KTH).

Degree project

A master's degree project takes place during the final semester; it is the culmination of the academic programme and is undertaken at KTH, or at a research institute or company in Sweden or abroad. Topics previously explored include: life-time predictions of commodity plastics, design of biobased adhesives, synthesis of sustainable polymers, fibre-solution interactions, microplastics, nanocomposites, 3D-printing and materials for biomedical applications.
