Master in Technology in Sweden

Technology

A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.

One of the greatest aspects of technology is that when it is embedded in machines and devices, most of the time the individual operating the machine or device does not need to understand the specifics of how the technology works. For example, someone using a computer does not need to understand the mechanics of the hard drive to benefit from using it.

Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.

Master in Sustainable Technology

Technology is an important driving force for economic development and technology and communication are two essential factors in the development of more sustainable societies. Without using technology in a sustainable way, it will not be possible to attain economic growth and global equity. Without communication skills, it will not be possible to reach consensus in the democratic processes in society for different new technologies. These insights will be the foundation in the Master’s programme in Sustainable Technology.

Programme outline

The courses in the program cover a range of trans-disciplinary subjects such as Industrial ecology, Environmental system analysis, Cleaner production, Technology and ecosystems, Ecological economics etc. The students will get tools and knowledge to be able to apply technology in a sustainable way....

Master in Transport and Geoinformation TechnologyThe creation and support of a sustainable and prosperous society involves more than just developing new technologies and acting sustainably as individuals. The process demands that we also understand how technologies are adopted and propagated, how our daily activities are affected by new policies and technologies, how these changes interact and spread across space, and how all of these efforts lead to change in the cities and regions around us. Programme outlineThe Master’s programme combines two closely related aspects of the built environment: Transport Systems and Geoinformation Technologies. In Transport Systems, we focus on analysing the movement of people and goods through space, and on planning, designing, constructing and operating the systems that accommodate these flows. Geoinformation Technology deals with acquisition, analysis, storage, visualisation and utilisation of geospatial data using information technology.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.Degree projectIn the degree project, students apply their acquired knowledge and skills to solving scientific problems in the main subject areas of the programme. They conduct independent investigations characterised by critical analysis and synthesis; they learn how to analyse, formulate and define scientific problems, find and evaluate possible solutions and finally present the results in a thesis. In addition, students will gain practical training in scientific communication and presentation, both orally and in written form.The degree project may be carried out at KTH or in a... [-]

Master's Programme in Human-Computer Interaction

 

In addition to the continued development of increasingly powerful and portable personal computers, a range of new artefacts is appearing, including car navigation devices and electronic books, adding to a large number of traditional artefacts, such as cameras, phones, washing machines, and fitness equipment, all of which are IT-artefacts which include advanced information processing components.

 

The trend towards the widespread use of IT-artefacts is one of the key aspects of the so-called "digital transformation", a revolutionary transformation of our culture and society that places a heavy emphasis on information and knowledge. This trend gives rise to new phenomena of human interaction with technology and world. Computational capabilities of the interactive things we use every day, combined with powerful new communication, input, and output capabilities, provide great possibilities for human action but also create numerous problems. Realising this potential effectively and efficiently requires that the interaction between people and IT-artefacts becomes an object of study dealing with both people and technology.... [-]
