As Sweden’s oldest and most prestigious technical university, KTH understands that education means more than what is confined to the classroom. Bringing the largest collection of international students of any Swedish university together, means KTH will continue to be one of the leading centres of cutting-edge innovations and education in Europe.
Southeast Asian students can expect to find the unique marriage of theoretical and practical applications in their chosen field of study, and a gateway to successful industrial and business opportunities – KTH is globally respected and connected.
KTH offers a multitude of degree programmes including engineering, information technology, architecture and sustainable development – with over 50 Master’s programmes taught in English.
With more Swedish CEO's coming from KTH than any other university, and the country now voted one of the most innovative in the world, new students can join a rich academic climate, in a beautiful city and expect excellent career prospects ahead of them.
KTH's partner universities
Some current examples of KTH collaborations involve our partner universities in Singapore. The National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) are both excellent institutions offering students the chance to take part in opportunities like the, which is now operated in both directions between NUS and KTH. This programme offers students from each university the ability to combine internships at growth companies in the host city with courses in entrepreneurship. NUS also has its Overseas College in Europe located at KTH.
The universities in the region with which KTH currently has partnerships are:
As Southeast Asia continues to develop and expand, with countries like Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore nurturing the desire for international qualifications in specialist technical areas, it is natural that an institution like KTH would help to provide a gateway to Europe’s academic and business community. Sweden already has a strong reputation for globally recognized companies - with Ikea being the largest privately owned business in Vietnam and Ericsson having a presence in Indonesia for over 100 years – so, it’s easy to imagine a new generation of Southeast Asian students being trained in Europe’s epicentre of innovation and entrepreneurialism. Our partnerships will continue to strengthen in the future.
