Welcome to KTH KTH, the Royal Institute of Technology Excellence in Education, Research and Entrepreneurship
KTH in Stockholm KTH was founded in 1827 and has remained the largest of Sweden’s universities of technology. Since 1917, activities have been housed in central Stockholm in beautiful buildings which today have historical monument status. Associated colleges are found at various places in the Stockholm surroundings – Haninge, Södertälje, and Kista. KTH co-operates with Stockholm University in Kista, the main Swedish resource centre of information technology, and with the new AlbaNova centre, with its departments of physics and biotechnology.
Organization BOARDS OF UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES School of Architecture (A) School of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Engineering Physics (DEF) School of Industrial Economics, Surveying, and Civil Engineering (ILV) School of KTH Kista, Information Technology, the IT University (ITU) School of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering & Technology, and Biotechnology (KKB) School of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Technology (MMT) School of KTH Syd KTH is organized in these Educational Schools. For each School there is a Programme Committee.
