Looking back at the School of Electrical Engineering

To celebrate the great things we have accomplished together, we have collected nine stories about successful research, education, co-operation and administration at the school. We have also produced a poster showing the development of Electrical Engineering at KTH, from 1900 to 2005. Get copies of each by stopping by administration at your department.

Work environment

In regards to #metoo

With the #metoo movement, there is no longer any doubt that sexual harassment occurs in all types of organizations. KTH has guidelines and routines for handling sexual harassment and discrimination and is continually working with implementing the necessary preventive and promotional measures for a working and studying environment of mutual respect and equal treatment.  


PhD students trained to make an impact

KTH wants research to have an impact on society. It’s a mindset that the PhD students need to get to grips with, says Tobias Oechtering, head of impact at the School of Electrical Engineering, which offers the course ‘From research to impact’.


EES will merge with CSC and ICT and become EECS

“Now we can start to work specifically towards creating an even better educational environment at KTH, with a more efficient, clearer organisational structure”, says Sigbritt Karlsson, KTH’s President, following the decisions she has made about the new school organisation of KTH which will take effect in the new year. The School of Electrical Engineering will merge with the School of Computer Science and Communication, the School of Information and Communication Technology. Professor Jens Zander has been appointed as the new Head of School.
