ICT Innovation at KTH

There are six tracks offered through the programme.

  • Autonomous Systems KTH (AUSY)
  • Data Science KTH (DASE)
  • Digital Media Technology (DMT)
  • Embedded Systems (ES)
  • Human Computer Interaction and Design (HCID)
  • Internet Technology and Architecture (ITA)

A key component in all specialisations of ICT Innovation is the integrated combination of a master’s degree project (30 ECTS), an “internship” (which should be included in the degree project credits) and an I&E project (6 ECTS). The industry based degree project (typically integrated with the "internship") is together with the I&E minor well integrated with the technical majors.

The programme covers two years of study at KTH in Stockholm. However, students who would like to attend the second year of the programme abroad can do so under the EIT Digital scheme to which this programme is attached. This creates flexibility for students who would like to continue their second year on the programme by either staying at KTH or decides to do the second year abroad at one of the other EIT Digital university members.

For details about the joint EIT Digital program please see EIT Digital Master School.
