Rail-oriented doctoral studies at KTH

The academic studies can be continued within a research project at one of our research divisions. The doctoral studies will lead to either a licentiate degree in about two years of research or a doctoral degree after four years of research.

This research can be started either immediately after completion of the undergraduate degree here at KTH or at another university. It can also be carried out after a few years work in the industry.
