Sub-portfolio education coordinates and is responsible for digitalisation initiatives and IT support management for undergraduate education at KTH.


Sub-portfolio education:

  • gives teachers and administrators the conditions to create world class programme education, 
  • offers teachers a way of work which is effective, pedagogical and with legal certainty,
  • is perceived to be uniform and is continuously improved to automate work and offer new quality-enhancing possibilities for education.

The organisation of sub-portfolio education

The sub-portfolio is governed by a steering group with representatives from KTH's education operations. At a tactical level, the portfolio office operates with team and administration leaders and a sub-portfolio council with unit managers. At an operational level, different delivery and project teams work in cross-functional collaborations with other operational teams in IT, EDO and the Department of Learning.

KTH’s IT-portfolios

KTH has an IT-portfolio group which consists of three sub-portfolios: education, research and administration. In each sub-portfolio there are management objects, system owners and projects. 

The purpose of the IT-portfolio

The purpose of the IT-portfolios is to prevent silo development in the organisation and work based on operation processes instead of departmental processes.
