The introduction of KTH (SE)

Established in 1827, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) is the oldest and largest technical university in Sweden, ranked among the top 10 technical research universities in Europe. KTH offers education in most engineering fields at bachelor, master and doctoral levels.

Research and education at KTH’s School of Architecture and the Built Environment covers wide-range scientific disciplines, from geodesy, geoinformatics, to civil engineering, urban planning, land management, real estate economics, environmental and natural resource management.

Department of Geodesy at KTH has been a world-known institution, often associated with pioneer research work of the late professor Arne Bjerhammar. “Geodimeter”, one of the first commercial electronic distance measurement instruments, is based on a patent invented in 1960’s at the department. In recent years, the department has been coordinator for five Tempus projects in Central Asia and Eastern Europe.

Main role of KTH in the present Tempus project is to lead the exploitation workpackage on course implementation. KTH will support Uzbek partners to develop a business plan, organize recruitment and entry exam for MSc candidates, and deliver pilot courses. In particular, staff of KTH will deliver a field course in Tashkent for 16 teachers on modern geodetic technologies.
