KTH Royal Institute of Technology
Founded in 1827, KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm is the largest, oldest and most international technical university in Sweden. No less than one-third of Sweden’s technical research and engineering education capacity at university level is provided by KTH. Education and research spans from natural sciences to all the branches of engineering. The educational programmes lead to Bachelor, Master or PhD degrees in engineering, science, or architecture. There are a total of just over 14,000 undergraduate students, more than 1,600 postgraduate students and almost 4,300 employees at KTH.
The present programme is hosted by the Department of Numerical Analysis of the School of Engineering Sciences (SCI). The main areas of SCI are physics, mathematics and mechanics. We focus on experimental and applied computational-heavy engineering based on core sciences. An international Master Programme in Scientific Computing has been established already in 1997. So far more than 250 students from all over the world have been graduated. The Department of Numerical Analysis has a well-established international network both in research and education.
Key academic personnel
Associate professor Michael Hanke is coordinating the international programmes in Scientific Computing. His main areas of research are numerical methods for differential equations with emphasis on applications in large system modelling and systems biology.
Associate professor Lennart Edsberg has been the coordinator and co-founder of the programme in Scientific Computing. His main areas of research and teaching are numerical analysis, in particular computational methods for differential equations.
