Network and Systems Engineering is one of sixteen divisions at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at KTH. The division is led by Professor Rolf Stadler.
The division started on January 2017 and consists of the former Laboratory of Communication Networks and staff from Automatic Control as well as Electric Power and Energy Systems. We carry out three forms on scholarship: teaching, research and service to our society and our scientific international community.
In research, the division of Network and Systems Engineering addresses fundamental problems and engineering challenges for the development of the Internet and for mobile networks, smart grids, sensor networks, vehicular networks and other forms of cyber-physical systems. Some notable contributions are in system security, network optimizations, performance evaluation, smart grid communication, distributed systems management, quality of service, and device-to-device communication.
Our research methods include stochastic analysis, system modeling, game theory, optimization theory, data analysis, algorithm design and analysis, as well as simulation and prototyping for experimental evaluations.
The division faculty teaches undergraduate, master's level and doctoral courses in the programs of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and MS program in Information and Network Engineering. We are active in shaping the future of engineering education and in addressing the challenges and possibilities for society from the ongoing digitalization of work. Two of our faculty members have been awarded the KTH Pedagogic Prize and one has received the Janne Carlsson award for academic leadership.
Rolf Stadler is Head of Division.
