The Royal Institute of Technology, KTH, is located in Stockholm, a beautiful royal city of palaces and docks, and a history spanning eight hundred years. KTH attracts more engineering international students than any other university due to its high academic reputation, wide variety of courses in English and its high quality of life. Known for their social consciousness and rigor, most professors at KTH are highly proficient in English, allowing international students better access to, and understanding of, the material presented. Sweden's emphasis on responsible citizenship, equality, engagement, renewable energy, sustainable development and concern about global challenges is reflected in its curriculum. This is a great program for students interested in green technologies and development. Student housing and meals are subsidized by the government so they are very affordable, comfortable and spread throughout the city.
