Alum of the Year at KTH
The annual Alum of the Year award at KTH aims to recognise and celebrate a prominent alumnus/alumna who is an inspiration to others.
The Alum of the Year should hold a degree from KTH. KTH Alumni Advisory Board reviews the nominations and issues a recommendation to the President, who makes the final decision. The award ceremony usually takes place at the graduation ceremony in the Town Hall at the end of May. The Alum of the Year-event is also held in the spring.
