We offer study programmes in different cycles as well as single subject courses are given both on campus and on a distance.

The educational environment supports the students in developing into good colleagues, leaders and innovators with the ability to predict and generate changes and external engagement with wider society and the private sector contribute to making us more attractive and ensures that our education and research maintain high quality and relevance.

Top reasons to study at BTH

We change the world - for the better

Studies tied to real life demands

BTH offers student-centered and research-based education with clear links to wider society emphasising creativity, independence, initiative and entrepreneurship.

Our goal is that our courses and programmes will give students opportunities to build a career within their chosen field. Our focus is not only on what happens during the studies, but also what happens after. Therefore, many of our courses and programmes include projects tied to real life demands and are conducted together with industry. This way, the students will gain insight into their future profession and contacts with potential future employers already during their studies.

Students at BTH are part of an international environment that provides them with the opportunity to build global networks for the future.

BTH size contributes to students quickly getting to know one another and the study groups are smaller than average. Students can easily get in contact with our teaching staff and other employees.

This creates an open, rewarding and interesting study environment.

Research for societal challenges

BTH conducts research focused on digitalisation and sustainability and is usually conducted in collaboration with industry and society.
As an institute of technology, we have great opportunities to contribute to a sustainable future for our society and we achieve this by carrying out research that makes a real difference.

To succeed, BTH aims for close collaboration with industry and society, and for high quality in everything we do. The research concentrates on fields where there are good conditions to be of benefit to society.

BTH has high ambitions – and within some fields, such as software engineering and strategic sustainable development, we are already world class.

The research at BTH is conducted in twelve different fields at two faculties and today, research and research studies account for more than one third of our activities and we intend to increase that share even further.
