The Information and Network Engineering programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology addresses the digitalisation of modern society and the rapid evolution of advanced communication systems. 

Visit the official programme website for more information


We live in an increasingly connected world where not only people but also a rapidly growing number of sensors and devices are going on-line. To maintain and develop the high-tech industry around the world, engineers are needed who cannot only use but also understand and develop new solutions for advanced communication systems and for methods used to analyse and process the huge amounts of information that flow in different networks.

To an increasing degree, this need is also seen outside the traditional information and communications technology sector. Examples include the new sector of companies based on cloud services as well as the more conventional manufacturing industry and the motor vehicle industry, to mention just a few.

This Information and Network Engineering programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology  will prepare you for a future professional role by providing a broad basis in communications and data analysis. You will choose one of four tracks that will provide you with in-depth knowledge in the area.


The master’s programme in Information and Network Engineering has been designed to provide a solid foundation in the strongly connected fields of networking, communications, multimedia processing and data analysis, with the opportunity of gaining expertise in one of these areas.

The programme prepares you for a future professional role in research and development. There are many companies in the Stockholm area working with telecommunication technologies, as well as in emerging areas such as the internet of things, cloud computing or industry digitalisation. Graduates of the programme are working at companies like Google, Skype, Ericsson, Huawei technologies, Telia company, Nokia, ÅF, Cisco, ABB, Avida finans and Scania.
