The Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (Kungliga Tekniska högskolan, KTH) is one of the world’s leading universities, ranking a shared 36th place with the University of Michigan in the World QS rankings for science and technology. KTH was founded in 1827 and today provides a significant part of Sweden’s university-level higher education. More than 14,000 undergraduate and 1,700 postgraduate students study at KTH.
The 3+2 program that JI has with KTH allows students to spend their senior year at KTH, enrolled in one of KTH’s Master programmes. During this year, students will complete their capstone design / senior design projects and accumulate all remaining credits for graduation at JI. Credits can be double-counted for JI’s Bachelor and KTH’s Master degree. After graduating from JI, students continue in the Master programme at KTH and are able to complete it in one additional year. During this year, they pay tuition as usual.

Studying in Sweden is a pleasant experience. Slow rhythm of life provides me with more time to enjoy and adapt to the Nordic life style. Swedes are really kind, friendly and a bit shy; they speak perfect English; they love to preserve and share their culture; and they love corporation. Coming to Sweden broadens my mind and develops my all round ability.

Living in Stockholm is really an enjoying experience. In summer, the temperature is 22 degrees at most. You can have an afternoon fika during “lazy” afternoon time, after that, have a walk around the lake and chat with friends.
As for studying in KTH, in class, you will study together with students from all over the world, share knowledge and experiences with each other. Out of class, you will be exposed to a lot of student engineering projects which you can choose to join.
It will be exciting and worthwhile to spend your senior year here and continue to finish the master degree.
