Get to know us
BTH is a knowledge-driven organisation centred on utility and application, and as
such we are a driving force in the transition to a sustainable and more digital society.

Eduation at BTH
BTH offers profession-oriented study programmes which are intended for both national and international students. They are conducted in close collaboration with society-at-large.
The majority of our students study in the first cycle, where most of our courses are
offered in Swedish. In years two and three, a range of courses offered in English
invites student exchanges and internationalisation.
Second cycle programmes are
based on our strong research fields and ensure that we have complete environments.
The student body consists of both Swedish and international students from various
countries, and the proportion of fee-paying students is one fifth of the total.
