Royal Institute of Technology

Royal Institute of Technology has served as one of Europe’s key centres of innovation and intellectual talent for almost two hundred years. Recognized as Sweden’s most prestigious technical university, KTH is also the country’s oldest and largest. KTH is working with industry and society in the pursuit of sustainable solutions to some of humanity’s greatest challenges: climate change, future energy supply, urbanisation and quality of life for the rapidly-growing elderly population. KTH is addressing these with world leading, high-impact research and education in natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as in architecture, industrial management, and urban planning. The educational programs lead to Bachelor, Master or PhD degrees in engineering, science, or architecture. With over 18,000 students, some 2,000 PhD students and approximately 3,700 full-time employees, KTH provides one third of Sweden’s technical and engineering research at university level. Basic and applied researches are performed side-by-side at KTH and interdisciplinary research is conducted in parallel with work in specific fields. Our educational programmes foster a new generation of engineers, architects, teachers and undergraduate engineers. KTH embraces academia and the public and private sectors working together. We are part of extensive international research collaborations and participate in a large number of educational exchange or joint programmes with universities and colleges in Europe, the U.S., Australia, Asia and Africa. The division of Geoinformtics at KTH has extensive expertise on remote sensing, GIScience, 3D visualization, spatial temporal data mining, big data analytics and their applications in environmental change monitoring, urban analysis, land-cover mapping, disaster management, and transport planning. The Division is the leading group in Sweden and one of the leading groups internationally on Remote Sensing and GIS for land cover and urban mapping, change detection, and environmental change monitoring.
