1 Welcome to KTH KTH Royal Institute of Technology Excellence in Education, Research and Entrepreneurship
2 KTH in Stockholm KTH was founded in 1827 and has remained the largest of Sweden’s technical universities. Since 1917, activities have been housed in central Stockholm in beautiful buildings which are currently protected as being of special historical interest. Associated colleges are found at various places in the Stockholm surroundings – Haninge, Södertälje, Flemingsberg and Kista. KTH co-operates with Stockholm University in Kista, the main Swedish resource centre of information technology, and in the AlbaNova Centre, with its departments of physics and biotechnology.
