Overall Tobii is ranked in 32nd place among engineers at KTH and is nationally listed as the 85th most attractive employer in the country, a big step forward from 2012 where Tobii reached 118th place.

“The results speak for themselves: KTH is an important recruitment base for Tobii and we work closely with several programs, providing expert lecturers and offer a large number of thesis projects to students each year. Similar initiatives exist in other universities and colleges, and this is definitely something we intend to focus more on in order to broaden our recruiting base, says Sara Hyléen,” marketing director at Tobii.
