We shape the future

One precondition for innovation and enterprise is the study and application of basic physical and chemical phenomena as well as the integration of new, often multidisciplinary technologies, methods and tools.

Our activities cover the engineering, technological and economic knowledge necessary to be able to develop new products, material and production processes in a sustainable fashion as concerns technical management, financial profitability and the environment. The school has a strong faculty with about 50 professors.

Competence centres

Research at the Competence Centres addresses newer subject areas. These efforts are often conducted in joint projects with business life and various societal bodies. The majority of our Centres maintain close connections with industry. Some of them also act as liaison offices between KTH and other universities.
