Thematically, the students should obtain basic disciplinary knowledge, skills and competencies during the first three years of the education in the core areas of information and communication technology: mathematics, electronics, computer, communication  and software engineering. Under the final two years of the education, knowledge and skills are deepened within some subarea coinciding with a master's education at KTH or an Erasmus Mundus Master's programme where KTH participates.

In addition to the requirements of the Higher Education Ordinance the following apply:

Knowledge and understanding

To be awarded an engineering degree in informatics, the student should:

  • be able to apply mathematics and basic natural sciences within information - and communication technology
  • be able to analyze technical problems from a systems perspective with an  overall view on technical systems and their life cycle from conception, design, implementation, possibly production, operation, maintenance and phasing-out.
  • be able to follow and utilize the knowledge development within the field of technology.

For the international specialization applies also that a Master of Engineering that has followed it should be able to:

  • follow and utilize the knowledge development within the field of technology on respective language (European languages: Spanish, German, French).
  • follow and utilize the knowledge development within the field of technology on respective language at a general level (Chinese and Japanese).

Skills and abilities

To be awarded an engineering degree in informatics, the student should:

  • within the area of information and communication technology be able to apply creative and critical working methods to formulate and explore problems with modern methods and tools
  • be able to analyze technical problems from a systems perspective with an  overall view on technical systems and their life cycle from conception, design, implementation, possibly production, operation, maintenance and phasing-out.
  • be able to work with problem-solving that takes its starting point in the product or the need and functionality considering the individual's using the product and the technology interplay in the society.
  • have skills of efficient oral and in written communication, in Swedish and English, with different target groups. Corresponding to what is required for an international career.

For the international specialization applies also that a Master of Engineering that has followed it should be able to:

  • communicate efficient with colleagues on the language in question (European languages: Spanish, German, French).
  • be able to work as an engineer in countries where the language is native (all languages).

Ability to make judgments and adopt a standpoint

For an engineering degree in informatics, the student should:

  • appreciate that engineering problems are complex, often can be not well defined, and sometimes contain conflicting conditions
  • by exercise and reflection have developed an ability to work efficient in groups of different compositions, nationalities and abilities. Reference to KTH's local Degree Ordinance
