What we are
The students at the School of Chemical Science and Engineering and the School of Biotechnology at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm have in collaboration with the faculty formed the Committee for Chemical U.S. Travel, CHUST, which has been active since 1975.
KTH Royal Institute of Technology is Sweden’s largest, most respected and highest ranked technical university. KTH was founded in 1827 as Sweden’s first polytechnic institute of technology and is Scandinavia’s largest institution of higher education in technology. It provides one-third of Sweden’s technical and engineering research at university level.
The objective of the CHUST committee is to help students at School of Chemical Science and Engineering and the School of Biotechnology find summer research internships at universities or companies in an international environment. This gives the students the opportunity to work with challenging research projects, promoting an understanding of chemical engineering, chemistry and biotechnology in practice. The students also gain a rewarding experience of a foreign culture, while helping to strengthen the relations between universities and companies in different countries.
Students qualifying for the CHUST program are to graduate with the degree of Master of Science in Chemical Science and Engineering or Master of Science in Biotechnology. The educational program is all together five years. The students participating in the CHUST program have completed three to five years, and have acquired substantial knowledge in the fields of both applied and theoretical chemical engineering, or biotechnology.
CHUST has previously collaborated with universities such as MIT, Stanford University, University of Michigan, Princeton University, University of California Berkeley, Brown University and Columbia University amongst others.
Meet The Committee
The CHUST committee’s main objective is to maintain the contact with the participating universities. The committee also contacts new universities and finds new interesting and exciting positions and projects to send students to.
Another important task is to inform the students at KTH about the summer internships available, as well as aiding the partner universities in their selection process of the right student(s) for their project.
