Smart Electrical Networks and Systems at KTH

Electric power engineering is a critical component in the creation of a more sustainable energy supply. The joint master's programme in Smart Electrical Networks and Systems enables you to develop the technical and entrepreneurial skills needed to design smart grids that integrate renewable energy sources, manage and control power quality, use data-driven applications to enhance electrical solutions and lead the development of innovations such as battery applications, electric mobility and more...

The programme is offered at the following universities:

  • KTH: Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden
  • TU/e: Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands
  • KU Leuven, Belgium
  • Grenoble INP Institute of Technology, France
  • UPC: Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech, Barcelona, Spain

You will pursue your first year of studies at KTH Royal Institute of Technology and your second year at one of the other partner universities. You will also be exposed to the know how and expertise of AGH: University of Science and Technology in Poland and Uppsala University in Sweden, who are part of specific programme modules. The business and entrepreneurial elements of the programme are delivered by ESADE Business School in Spain.

“My bachelor's was in electrical engineering, so I thought this programme was the best choice for me. I chose Sweden and KTH because of the innovation project that forms part of the course schedule. I really wanted to do something like that because it involves close collaboration with the industry.”

Akshaya Prabakar, master's programme in Smart Electrical Networks and Systems
