Rohit comes from India and now studying master's programme Integrated Product Design at KTH.
What made you choose Sweden, KTH and your specific programme?
KTH is one of the best universities in the world with an open, communicative and innovative environment. Stockholm is one of the top rated cities to live in with an efficient transport system, a peaceful environment and natural getaways. Sweden is known for its innovative, safe and world-changing ideas such as the tetra pack, Spotify and Volvo Cars.
Only a few schools provide the Engineering master in Product Development, and KTH was one of them. The programme is very well structured with a hands-on product development project where students work with companies for an entire semester.
What do you like most about KTH?
The open access to study rooms, buildings and labs throughout the year.
What are your impressions of Stockholm and Sweden?
Wherever you are in Sweden, you are always close to forests, lakes and natural spots making living in the city a charm. The cleanliness of the city, the friendly nature of the locals helping you out in English, and the various academic and non-academic places promoting start-ups and new ideas make it one of the best places to spend your maturing years as a student.
What do you like most about being here?
Being able to use public transport which is often faster than private vehicles, biking through the forests and enjoying the many lakes around Stockholm with my friends.
What is your best memory so far from your time at KTH?
The master's introduction programme which involved a challenge to build a sledge with few basic materials such as cardboard boards, cylinders and ropes. It was an exciting start to a wonderful journey into the world of hands-on product development.
What would you like to say to students thinking of choosing KTH for master’s studies?
Come with an open mind, a desire to learn and the energy to explore technological possibilities, the open campus and the sometimes annoying, very systematic approach to life in Stockholm.
