Nordic Five Tech

Nordic Five Tech is a collaboration between the five leading technical universities in the Nordic countries: Aalto University in Finland, Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, Denmark Technical University (DTU), the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

Nordic Five Tech's joint Master's programmes

The Nordic Five Tech joint Master's programmes give you a unique opportunity to tailor your degree based on your academic interests. You will get to study at two of the partner universities in different countries (however, note that it is not possible to study at both Chalmers and KTH), spending one year at each one. You will graduate with a double Master’s degree, one from each of the universities where the studies have taken place.
