Transport and Geoinformation Technology at KTH

The master’s programme combines two closely related aspects of the built environment: transport systems and geoinformation technologies. The programme enables students to either specialise in one of these main subjects or develop their own interdisciplinary study plan, making use of each student’s unique background and interests. The recommended courses form a foundation for both subject areas, and students can choose a subject area by selecting the most appropriate sequence of the elective courses.
