Study at BTH
Study at BTH
Blekinge Institute of Technology, BTH, has a distinctive focus on the digitalisation of society and sustainability. Our task is to contribute to a more sustainable societal development through higher education, research, and innovation.
The study programmes are of high quality, student-centred, and linked to research, intended for national and international students. Our education focuses on society’s future needs and challenges in close collaboration with society at large. We offer study programmes in different cycles, as well as single-subject courses, which are given both on campus and through remote learning.
The educational environment supports the students in becoming good colleagues, leaders, and innovators with the knowledge and ability to predict and generate changes and external engagement with broader society. Additionally, the private sector contributes by making us more attractive to ensure that our education and research maintain high quality and relevance.
With a degree from BTH, students create conditions for society’s development in digitalisation and sustainability.
Eva Pettersson, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Head of Education at BTH, would like to welcome you and share some insights about education at BTH:
We change the world - for the better
Studies tied to real-life demands
BTH offers student-centred 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 the opportunities to build a career within their chosen field. Our focus is not only on what happens during the studies but also on what happens after. Therefore, many of our courses and programmes include projects tied to real-life demands conducted in collaboration with the industry. This way, the students will gain insight into their future profession and get in contact with potential employers already during their studies.
Students at BTH are part of an international environment that provides the opportunity to build future global networks.
The size of BTH and the smaller study groups make it easier for students to get to know each other. Also, students can easily get in contact with our teaching staff and other employees, which creates an open, rewarding, and engaging study environment.
Research for societal challenges
BTH conducts research focused on digitalisation and sustainability, usually conducted in collaboration with the industry and society.
As an institute of technology, we have great opportunities to contribute to a sustainable future for our society, which we achieve by carrying out research that makes a real difference.
To succeed, BTH aims for close collaboration with the industry and society and high quality in everything we do. The research concentrates on fields where there are good conditions beneficial 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 conducts within twelve different fields at two faculties. Today, research and research studies account for more than one-third of our activities, and we intend to increase that share even further.
