Programme outline

EIT ICT Labs has created a Master's programme joint between European top universities. The programme consists of seven tracks to choose from when applying to the programme, five of which are partially hosted by KTH.

The programme focuses strongly on the acquisition of transferable skills, especially in innovation and entrepreneurship and the tracks are set up to ensure multiple career paths and create awareness of job types and functions in relevant industry, research domain or education. Besides gaining fundamental knowledge in each track, you will also learn how to get your innovations to the market. The master’s thesis that you prepare in collaboration with a business includes creating a business plan for the commercial exploitation of your project. A basic course in innovation and entrepreneurship and the Business Development Labs Course are the vital parts of this module.

Those students who know what they want their future to look like can also specify which business partner organisation they would like to intern at. Also renowned European research facilities are partnered with EIT ICT Labs to provide assistance to students throughout the programme. Students that complete the programme will receive a degree from both universities in their individual study plan. They also earn an EIT ICT Labs certificate, documenting the EIT ICT Labs specific learning outcomes.
