Summer school at Campus Flemingsberg

For nine days in June, more than 40 pupils who have just finished year seven will visit Campus Flemingsberg and take part in exciting workshops. The so-called Summer School was started by Södertörn University in 2010, inspired by Scotland.

For the second year in a row, KTH in Flemingsberg will welcome the students for a day on 13 June.

CBH launches new Master's programme – Data-driven health

In autumn 2025, a new Master's programme in Data-Driven Health will start at Campus Flemingsberg in the main field of technology and health.

“When we started involving computer engineering students in our research projects, we quickly identified that a master's programme in data-driven health was missing from KTH's offerings. This is a subject that is growing internationally and is of great importance to society," says Sebastiaan Meijer, professor, deputy head of school and head of the Department of Health Informatics and Logistics.

Co-organization next step in development of UA

This is one of several points decided by the President in an orientation decision on how UA will be organized in the future.
