Dean Jens Zander

Sustainability and gender equality are some of KTH's priority areas and that is why the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) is participating in Järva's Political Week. The aim is to create a dialogue about future opportunities and to inspire young people to choose a technical career.

- Broadened recruitment is a question of democracy and it is no news that heterogeneous groups contribute to the quality of a society. Therefore, it is important that we deliberately and actively work to promote broaden recruitment to higher education. University studies should be available to everyone regardless of background where geographical proximity is important, says Jens Zander, dean of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
