The creation and maintenance of such a system demand knowledge of transport and geoinformation technologies, as well as an understanding of how the new technologies and policies are adopted, how they interact and how they affect our daily activities.

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. Most courses combine interactive lectures with laboratory work. Many also include an in-depth term project. The courses make use of modern data collection instruments and quantitative modelling and processing software.... [-]

The two-year master’s programme in Electromagnetics, Fusion and Space Engineering incorporates a strong foundation in electrical engineering with an understanding of electromagnetic fields and how they interact with matter.

Electromagnetics, Fusion, and Space Engineering at KTH

Electromagnetic fields are the basis of telecommunications. They are employed, for example, to transmit high-speed data through optic fibers or mobile wireless systems. Additionally, electromagnetic fields are transmitted from objects in the universe, such as stars, and they provide key information to help us understand the universe. Furthermore, a fundamental understanding of plasma is needed for controlling and generating fusion energy, the same source that powers the Sun, and which promises to power the Earth in the near future....
