With a strong history of groundbreaking research, KTH provides one third of Sweden’s technical and engineering research at university level. The university also secures substantial research funding every year with grants from important organizations like the European Research Council, and plays a central role in the newly formed European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). Master’s students will join over 2,000 people engaged in research at KTH and find a multitude of opportunities to grow in their individual areas of focus.

The KTH involvement in CIVIS comes from two departments, the Department of Energy Technology and the Department of Media Technology and Interaction Design: the first covers research areas in both technical and interdisciplinary nature from Micro to Macro in energy while the latter is an inter-disciplinary research group consisting of the two research groups Media technology and graphical production, and Human Computer Interaction.
