The Transport and Geoinformation Technology programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology enables students to either specialise in one of these main subjects, or develop their own interdisciplinary study plan, making use of each student’s unique background and interests.
The recommended courses form a foundation for both subject areas, and students can choose a subject area by selecting the most appropriate sequence of the elective courses.
Most courses combine interactive lectures with laboratory work. Many also include an in-depth term project. The courses make use of modern data collection instruments and quantitative modelling and processing software.
Securing sustainable development and preventing climate changes is a top priority for mankind. It cannot be achieved without well-organised, well-functioning and environmental-friendly transport systems.
A prerequisite for planning, designing and constructing all necessary infrastructure are precise and up-to-date geographic databases.
There is great demand for experts within transport systems and geoinformation technologies in both private and government sectors.
