KTH in Stockholm

KTH was founded in 1827 and has remained the largest of
Sweden’s technical universities. Since 1917, activities have
been housed in central Stockholm in beautiful buildings
which are currently protected as being of special historical
interest.

Associated colleges are found at various places in the
Stockholm surroundings – Haninge, Södertälje, Flemingsberg
and Kista.

KTH co-operates with Stockholm University in Kista, the
main Swedish resource centre of information technology, and
in the AlbaNova Centre, with its departments of physics and
biotechnology.
