KTH Kista - Study in one of Stockholm's most dynamic city districts
Kista is one of the world's most important ICT clusters. Kista Science City, or the Nordic Silicon Valley as it is also called, is the home of over 1,000 ICT companies and the birthplace of wireless communication technologies such as NMT, GSM, EDGE and W-CDMA.
KTH Kista offers education and research in all the areas which today's information society is based upon - from nano scale physics to the benefit of the end user. At the KTH Kista campus it is close to everything - both teachers and other students. Kista is an educational environment with modern facilities, which are always open to the students. All courses are within ICT, creating a strong cohesion and an exchange over the educational programmes. Stockholm University’s computer science programmes are also located in Kista. Together, over 3000 students create a living educational environment and a vibrant student life. The university, expanding businesses, large mall with shopping and entertainment, student accommodations and good communications are just a few of the things which make Kista one of Stockholm's most dynamic city districts.
KTH Kista is an exciting international environment with teachers and students from all around the world. The Master's and postgraduate programmes offered by the school attracts students from the world's top universities.
Since 1993, the area of ICT has been the fastest growing sector in Sweden, and many of the advances that have contributed to this have been made in Kista. With companies such as Ericsson, IBM, Tele2, TietoEnator, Microsoft, Intel and Oracle as neighbors, it is difficult not to be in phase with reality. Education and research at the school is made in collaboration with the industry and based on the technological challenges facing society. The cooperation between industry and research creates a unique environment for education and the opportunity for the students to make connections with the industry during their studies.
