School of Engineering Sciences collaborate with the surrounding community by industry, public sector, other organizations and students in primary and secondary education.
Stockholm Mathematics Centre
The Stockholm Mathematics Centre is a collaboration between the mathematics departments at KTH and Stockholm University. The activities include a master program in mathematics, a colloquium and activities for secondary school students.
Vetenskapens Hus is a major investment done by KTH and Stockholm University to attract interested students to technology-based education. Turn to KTH if you want to visit KTH one day for example to experiment i one of the labs.

In March, KTH organizes Öppet Hus, where interested high-school students and their parents have the opportunity to visit KTH. At Öppet Hus you can take guided tours, meet student counselors and meet students who read the programs you are interested in.
KTH and the School of Engineering Sciences collaborate with a number of internationally renowned universities to offer graduate engineering students a double degree. An opportunity that allows the student to take an academic and social step towards a possible international career.
The School of Engineering Sciences, together with universities such as Osaka University and University of Toronto, is a member of the International Engineering Science Consortium (IESC) to promote exchanges of technology science experience between universities.
KTH’s students end their studies with a degree project. The degree project gives the students an opportunity to apply their knowledge in the real life outside the academia world. The degree project is ten 10-20 weeks and is supervised by KTH in collaboration with the involved organisation. It can be started both during the spring and fall term. The examination is managed by KTH. Does your organization have a problem for one of our students to solve? In order to reach our students advertise the degree project in
, when staff are moving between KTH and the outside world, is an important part of the KTH model for collaboration. At the school there are currently five adjunct professors, four affiliated professors, four visiting professors and twelve affiliated faculty. See the list below.

Shiva Sander Tavallaey (Aeronautical & Vehicle Engineering) ABB coorporate research
Håkan Andersson (Mathematics) Skandia
Siv Leth (Aeronautical & Vehicle Engineering) Bombardier Transportation Sweden AB
Gunnar Jakobsen (Applied Physics) Acreo AB
Adjunct professors at KTH act as bridge builders between the university and the outside world and provide interfaces in addition to existing cooperation on partnership projects, commissioned research or research centre creation. The adjunct professors also help to supplement KTH’s resources. Today, many of them are actively involved in seeking external research funding, and others provide KTH researchers with access to their home organisation’s labs, equipment and data.

An Affiliated Professor is a researcher, affiliated with a university or college without being employed. An affiliation may at some departments include a non-researcher, but who works outside the academic area, but is expected to have equivalent academic competence, for example in an artistic field.

A Visiting Professor is a professor-qualified graduate who for a certain period of time has been employed as a professor at a university or college other than the one in which he or she normally operates. A visting professor is often appointed as a professor at his regular institution. In other cases, the person has been assessed as a professor of competence in connection with the appointment of a visiting professor.

Susanna Lundgren (Solid Mechanics) Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB
Simon Middleburgh (Physics) Westinghouse Electric Sweden AB
Per Hallander (Aeronautical & Vehicle Engineering) SAAB
Nina Kirchner (Aeronautical & Vehicle Engineering) Stockholm University
An Affiliate faculty appointment should be seen as a strategic instrument with which both parties can strengthen and influence the direction and focus of a research area, or support undergraduate and advanced education at KTH. The position can help a person gain a docent qualification and thus also subsequently gain adjunct professor status at KTH.
Co-operation at KTH
KTH is in close co-operation with several large companies and organizations in the region. Partnerships, projects, alumni and supply of competence are some of the ways KTH is working with co-operation.
