ICT Innovation at KTH

EIT Digital has created a joint master's programme between top European universities. The programme consists of seven tracks for students to choose from when applying to the programme, five of which are offered at KTH.

The programme focuses strongly on the acquisition of transferable skills, and especially in innovation and entrepreneurship the tracks are set up to ensure multiple career paths and to create awareness of functions and career opportunities in relevant industries, research domains and education. Besides gaining fundamental knowledge in each track, you will also learn how to get your innovations to the market. You have the opportunity to prepare a master’s thesis in collaboration with the ICT industry, and this includes creating a business plan for the commercial exploitation of your project. Business Development Labs Course are vital parts of this programme. Another important aspect of the programme is the mandatory summer school courses between year one and two. There are currently nine different destinations to choose from all around Europe.
