Marie Ideström Founder/Project Leader at Electrolux/Design and Product Realization/KTH/Stockholm
To say that Marie ended up at KTH by chance would not entirely be a lie. She had always had an interest in figuring out how products mechanically function, but thought that surely you must above all be a math genius in order to manage five long years of engineering studies? And what can you actually work with when you’re done? It turned out that there were plenty of math geniuses, but far from everywhere. When it came to possibilities after the studies, it in Marie’s case meant a role as internal management consultant at Volvo Group. At Womengineer, she is responsible for business relations.
Emelie Emanuelsson Founder/Lead engineer at Volvo Cars/Design och product realization/KTH/Stockholm
At the beginning, Emelie wanted to become a designer. But, after a technical prepatory year at KTH in Haninge, she realized her unknown passion for mathematics and physics. So instead of industrial design, she decided to study Design and Product Realization at KTH, an education which combines design, mechanical engineering and industrial economics with management courses.
Dajana Vlajic Student/Computer Science/KTH/Stockholm
Dajana is currently enrolled at the program of Civil Engineering in Computer Science at The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). Her choice of education has resulted in a vast amount of surprising challenges and opportunities. She believe that the generous offering of courses in mathematics and software development is remarkable, nevertheless has the knowledge gained alongside her studies been rewarding in terms of unpredictable, fun and useful experiences.
