Why did you choose this master’s programme at KTH?

A lovely aspect of studying Embedded Systems at KTH is that you can choose between many different courses, which allows you to get more into detail about things you like. Only about one-third of the courses are mandatory, and you can pick all the others within a great selection, covering many different topics.

Have you chosen a specialisation track within the programme? If Yes, which way and why?

In the Embedded Systems programme, choosing between four tracks is possible. I picked the Embedded Electronics Track since I have always enjoyed analogue electronics, and it was the perfect continuation of what I studied in my bachelor's. The most covered topics in this track are analogue electronics, hardware design, and hardware integration.

How do studies at KTH differ from your previous studies?

Compared to Politecnico di Milano, KTH focuses more on the practical aspect instead of the theoretical. There will be many assignments and seminars during the lecture period that will help you keep track of the topics covered and better understand the practical use of the things we are studying.

How is student life in Stockholm?

Student life is great! There are lots of activities throughout the year. Hiking, museums, events, and parties, Stockholm offers many things to do. Even during the winter, the city gets covered by snow, which is extraordinary!

What do you want to do after graduating?

After graduating, I want to work in the automotive industry. Working with new technologies in the fast-growing electric car field would be fantastic! And Sweden has many industries to choose from in this area!
