KTH Master’s Challenge 2018

The Big Challenge is back!!!!

This time not just in India but in Indonesia too!

Hello !!!!I

I sound excited? well, I am! KTH Master’s Challenge is back again this year and is every reason to be excited about! Powered by Sqore again and backed up by Industry partners like Scania, SAAB and Formulate IP. And yes, the competition invites participants from India and Indonesia!

So my fellow friends, if you’re planning to do master’s or if you know someone who is, HIT THE LINK or spread the word!

The wait is sure longer, the work is harder, but the fruit is definitely the sweetest!  All the other KTH applicants start their process by early January and fly to Sweden during August, almost  8 months! But, Master’s challenge contestants start their journey in early October, that’s like 3 extra months of the wait than the others! The awesome part is that you will receive your results in Jan, so you will have soooooooo much time to prepare to head north!

Anyway, Let’s talk about the competition…..

Machine Learning + Vehicle Engineering  = Super Cool Cars 😛
