BTH - distinctly profiled
Blekinge Institute of Technology, BTH, has a distinctive focus on applied IT and innovation for sustainable growth.
BTH conducts education and research at a high international level in which engineering and IT are integrated with other disciplines such as urban planning, industrial economics, design and health sciences to contribute to solving the challenges facing society. Everything we do has three distinct perspectives: innovation, sustainability and in real life, which means collaboration and exchange with both business and industry as well as society.
BTH offers student-centred and research-based education resulting in students who are satisfied with their education and in demand on the labour market. Our aim is that the students become creative, knowledgeable and independent, acquiring a sound basis for their future success after graduation.
BTH is a university where the research is applied, i.e. the purpose of the research is to seek new knowledge with a view to a definite application. Research is conducted in collaboration with both business and industry as well as society, and always with a clear focus – that the results will contribute to solving the challenges facing society.
BTH has a distinctive focus on IT and sustainability. We are firmly rooted in an innovative and expanding region. We represent quality and innovation, and are perceived as open, exciting and creative. Our activities attract students, businesses and organisations, and contribute to new and local investments.
Both of BTH’s campuses are located by the sea, which creates a special atmosphere. On campus there are of course lecture halls and libraries, but also restaurants and cafes, student housing, a students’ union, and the unique opportunity to swim in the sea; in other words – an inspiring study environment.
