KTH accounts for one-third of Sweden's technical research and engineering education capacity at university level. Education and research cover a broad spectrum - from natural sciences to all the branches of engineering as well as architecture, industrial engineering and management, urban planning, work science and environmental engineering. In addition to the research carried out by KTH's Schools, a large number of both national and local Competence Centres are located at KTH. Various research foundations also finance a number of research programmes.

KTH was founded in 1827 and the main campus has been located in attractive, and now listed, buildings in central Stockholm since 1917. The School of Information and Communication Technology is located on the Kista campus, north of Stockholm.

In Kista, KTH collaborates with Stockholm University, various research institutes and industry within the framework of the IT University - Sweden's largest resource in information technology.

KTH has extensive international research and educational exchange programmes with universities and colleges, mainly in Europe, the USA and Australia, but also increasingly in Asia. The university participates actively in various EU research programmes and also cooperates with Swedish and international development agencies.
