"Winning KTH Master’s Challenge has redefined my life. I have fallen in love with Electrical Engineering, yet again, and with Stockholm even more! The city has always amazed me, from its scrumptious meatballs and fika (a Swedish tradition) to the many tranquillising lakes and forests, Stockholm is truly heaven on earth.
The education here is exceptional. It’s such a pleasure to explore subjects both theoretically as well as in practical applications. With the plethora of opportunities to learn and grow, along with the freedom to travel and explore both Sweden and your own self, KTH is undeniably the best thing that has happened to me. I can’t wait to experience more of KTH and Sweden in the days to come!"

"I come from Jogjakarta, Indonesia and graduated from Duta Wacana Christian University in informatics engineering. I am studying in the Master's programme at KTH within the School of Computer Science and Communication. In my spare time, I love to explore the different parts of Stockholm and visit new places I've never been before. Besides that, I love to get involved in human-computer interaction projects.
KTH has the best environment for students. You can balance your life between study and social activities at the same time. The education at KTH is very international and it’s not difficult to have a conversation with teachers and friends since everybody speaks a very good English in Sweden. What I like the most are the many spaces for students to study and hang out at the same time."
