KTH in Stockholm is the largest, oldest and most international technical university in Sweden. No less than one-third of Sweden's technical research and engineering education capacity at university level is provided by KTH. Education and research spans from natural sciences to all the branches of engineering and includes architecture, industrial management and urban planning. The educational programmes lead to Bachelor, Master or PhD degrees in engineering, science, or architecture. There are a total of almost 14,000 undergraduate students and more than 1,700 active postgraduate students. KTH has just over 4,600 employees.
New device could improve biomarker analyses
A device proposed by researchers at Sweden's KTH Royal Institute of Technology could offer a more reliable alternative for detecting biomarkers in patients facing such illnesses as cancer or malaria.
Battery design could reduce electric car weight
Battery weight has long vexed engineers designing electric cars for the mass market. Bigger batteries are needed to power a car for longer distances, but their weight in turn requires the car to expend more ...
Robot warriors pose ethical dilemna
With the increasing use of drones in military operations, it is perhaps only a matter of time before robots replace soldiers. Whether fully automated war is on the immediate horizon, one researcher says it's not too early ...
Could decentralized networks help save democracy?
Democratic movements can flourish online, but just as easily get censored. A group of researchers is developing solutions to the vulnerabilities and privacy problems with using big social media platforms like Facebook and ...
Method offers potential for understanding anti-bacterial resistance
Biologists could gain a deeper understanding about how species have evolved – and even find ways to address antibiotic resistance – using tools that were developed recently at Stockholm's KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
Cities open up to congestion charging
Traffic jams aren't the only things that disappear when congestion charging programs are implemented. A Swedish researcher finds that opposition to these proposals appears to vanish once they take effect.
Trapped by an avalanche, saved by an app
An app developed at Sweden's KTH Royal Institute of Technology makes it possible for skiers with smartphones to find people buried in the snow after an avalanche.
Rocking robot pays tribute to Robyn
When a team of mechatronics students built a robot dedicated to Robyn, they didn't expect the pop star to become personally involved. The dancing "Robyt" makes its world debut this week and earns props from ...
Platform would protect smartphones from cyber criminals
Criminals don't have to pick your pocket to get what they want out of your mobile. But a certifiably secure operating platform is being developed by Swedish researchers so that consumers can be confident that their mobile ...
Lightning harnessed to protect grid components
The foes of power grids everywhere, lightning and other high voltage currents now can help utilities track the health of components throughout their systems.
Even 25 metres below ground, positioning system tracks firefighters
With sensor-equipped footwear developed at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, firefighters can be even more effective at saving lives and property.
Robot as social interface (w/ Video)
Human interaction with robots is about to get a little more personal. Meet "Furhat," the face of tomorrow's interactive technology.
Potential for magnetic cellulose comes in crisp and clear
They're flat, ultra-thin and great-sounding. The world's first known magnetic cellulose loudspeakers have been demonstrated at KTH.
Waste could help fuel low carbon energy and transport
In a time when society– and nature itself– are threatened by climate change, it seems fair to ask: Does recycling still matter? Two Swedish scientists say it does.
New potential for touch screens found at your fingertips
Our sense of touch is clearly more acute than many realize. A new study by Swedish scientists demystifies the "unknown sense" with first-ever measurements of human tactile perception.
