ICT Innovation at KTH

EIT Digital has created a joint master's program between top European universities. The program consists of eight tracks for students to choose from when applying to the program, six of which it is possible to study at KTH.

The program focuses strongly on the acquisition of transferable skills, and especially in innovation and entrepreneurship, the tracks are set up to ensure multiple career paths and to create awareness of functions and career opportunities in relevant industries, research domains, and education. Besides gaining fundamental knowledge in each track, you will also learn how to get your innovations to the market. You have the opportunity to prepare a master’s thesis in collaboration with the ICT industry, and this includes creating a business plan for the commercial exploitation of your project. Business Development Labs Course is a vital part of this program. Another important aspect of the program is the mandatory summer school courses between years one and two. There are currently nine different destinations to choose from all around Europe.

EIT Digital is a joint program where all students will study at two different universities (one year at each university during the two years of study). Students who complete the programme will receive a master’s degree from each of the two universities they have chosen to attend. They also earn an EIT Digital labeled certificate, documenting the EIT Digital specific learning outcomes.

Students interested in studying both years at KTH should instead look at the KTH master’s program ICT Innovation to which this program is attached.

The program is given mainly at KTH Kista by the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (at KTH).
