Ashutosh Mittal received the KTH & Ericsson Scholarship and two years later, he graduated from the Master’s Programme in Wireless Systems in 2017. He now works as a Software Developer at Ericsson in Stockholm, Sweden.
What did it mean for you to receive the KTH & Ericsson Scholarship?
Getting the KTH & Ericsson Scholarship meant a great deal for me. It provided me the opportunity and means to study at one of the top universities in the world, as well as work at the world's leading telecom company.
I believe this partnership is important for attracting the best talents from around the world. It is a win-win partnership for all stakeholders — for KTH, Ericsson, students, and Sweden.
The KTH Master's Challenge, where I won the Scholarship, has played a huge role in shaping my career. My master studies at KTH, followed by a job at Ericsson as a software developer, might not have become a reality had I not received the KTH-Ericsson Scholarship.
What did you think about your Master’s programme at KTH?
My master’s programme at KTH was very well formulated, providing the necessary technical skillset required for my future endeavors. I also particularly enjoyed my campus life which included a very active student society with people from varied social and cultural backgrounds.
