Ask Márton questions about KTH and read more about his decision to study at KTH, thoughts about Sweden, advice to prospective students and his plans for the future.
Hi, my name is Marci. I am from Hungary and I am doing my master's programme Integrated Product Design.
Why did you choose this master's programme at KTH?
I wanted to see how industrial product design is taught in Scandinavia, and several universities are offering the programme in Sweden. KTH was the most prominent among them, and the fact that Stockholm is well known to be one of the best cities to live in the world made KTH the best choice for me.
Have you chosen a specialisation track within the programme?
The two specialisations in the programme could almost be separate master's. My track of choice is Industrial Design Engineering compared to Innovation Management and Product Development. I choose this track because I wanted to be an inventor or a profession of a similar matter when I was young, and product engineering was the closest thing. Not to mention that my bachelor's degree was the same as my current track, so this was the obvious choice for me.
What are some of your favourite courses so far?
I have just completed the course Metal workshop practice. It was the most hands-on experience that I have ever had in my education, mainly in the form of independent work. I have learned many practical skills and managed to build the example project for the course and a little hand-operated air pump.
What do you want to do after graduating?
I would love to continue my studies at KTH. My dream is to be accepted as a PhD candidate and work on a mechanical design of a CubeSat or a microsatellite of similar size. Since this is something I can't take as granted I plan to write my master's thesis at a company and continue to work there after my graduation, while keeping an eagle eye on the upcoming PhD topics at KTH.
What would you like to say to students thinking of choosing KTH for master's studies?
You should enjoy the upcoming period of professional development and the friendships you will form during it to the fullest because even though I am only halfway through mine, I am, to some extent already grieving over the fact that it will be soon over.
