Assistive Technology at KTH is a non-governmental student association. Our purpose is to develop innovative technical solutions to facilitate everyday life for people with disabilities. In that way bringing awareness and creating long-term interest in the field of assistive technologies.
We search for students that want to use their knowledge to help people in need. After an application process, teams of selected students are paired with clients who live with a disability. Over the course of the project students brainstorm, design, and create a prototype solution for their client.
Use your technical skills from KTH to solve actual real-world problems.
See the results of helping someone who really needs it.
Meet other students who are passioned to turn the world into a better place.
Joining us will make you more attractive to employers.
