About

The Software Engineering of Distributed Systems programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology is intended to be an educational response to such industrial demands. 

Overview

The set of devices in which distributed software applications may operate ranges from cloud servers to smartphones. 

New technological developments create considerable demand from industry and for engineers who can design software systems utilising these developments.

The Software Engineering of Distributed Systems programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology provides students with state-of-the-art knowledge of the field and develops their practical skills in order to meet current industrial requirements, as well as enhancing their ability to adapt to the new developments of tomorrow’s technology.

Career

Since the programme is oriented to educate software engineers with a comprehensive knowledge of recent advanced methods and technologies in distributed software systems, opportunities for graduates to find a job are extensive. 

The programme qualifications allow students to work in a multitude of companies developing or maintaining software, and this is a huge market. Alumni can be found working in companies such as Ericsson, Spotify, Google, Nasdaq, Netlight, Scania group and SEB. 

Many students have been offered permanent positions either in Sweden or abroad even before they graduate. 

Feedback from former students shows that they very much appreciate the knowledge of modern technologies they learned from the programme, and this knowledge enables them to be very competitive in the labour market. 

Likewise, there are many examples of graduates becoming key employees in their companies by promoting these modern technologies.

A large number of students also target an academic career, and many of them have proceeded to doctoral positions in well-known universities all over the world.
