KTH Master’s Challenge Programmes

Indonesian students interested in Machine Learning and Vehicle Engineering are invited to participate in the KTH Master’s Challenge and compete for a full tuition scholarship to pursue one of the related master’s degrees at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Read a detailed description for each of the two master’s programmes below.

Master’s Programme in Machine Learning

Machine Learning is an area within Computer Science where computer systems are designed to learn from large sets of data or samples, similarly to the learning strategies of biological systems (like humans). The focus of the Master’s programme in Machine Learning is on mathematical foundations and methods for Machine Learning. These application areas include topics such as computervision, speech communication, robotics, information retrieval and/or computational biology.

There are many who are excited by the possibilities of machine learning - autonomous driving cars, improving health care, efficiency gains in production, automation of tedious but important jobs. But much rarer are people with substantive knowledge of the field. By studying at KTH you will gain both the theoretical understanding and the practical skills to become a knowledgeable machine learning expert capable of influencing how machine learning shapes the future of our society!

Master’s Programme in Vehicle Engineering

Vehicle Engineering is a broad subject of engineering science driven by an ever increasing degree of mobility in the world. The objective of this programme is to educate engineers for a global industry, administration and research institutions active in this area. It is a joint effort by several KTH departments, providing leading expertise in their respective areas of research. The Department of Aeronautical and Vehicle Engineering coordinates the programme and provides about half of the courses. Learn more about the Master’s Programme in Vehicle Engineering here.

Lars Drugge, programme director

“Tough societal challenges with growing cities, environmental goals and demands on cost-effectiveness require the transport sector to undergo significant changes to meet individual and social demands. This calls for innovative solutions and skilled engineers to develop environmentally friendly, smart and safe vehicles and transport systems. This field will continually demand specialists to enable the transition to sustainable road and rail transport in the future.”
