Why study at BTH / Blekinge Institute of Technology

Studies Tied to Real Life Demands

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

Our goal is that our courses and programs 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 programs 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 makes the most of being a small university. Our students quickly get to know one another, and the study groups are small. Students can easily get in contact with teaching staff and other employees. This creates a rewarding, interesting, and safe study environment.

Research for Societal Challenges

BTH’s research is of great relevance and impact, and our findings provide significant contributions in the form of knowledge and innovations to solve the challenges
facing society.

The research at BTH is conducted at two faculties within the fields of engineering, IT, spatial planning, industrial economics, design, and health sciences.

Despite its relatively small size, BTH has a great deal of research. Today, research and research studies account for more than one-third of our activities and we intend to increase that share even further. We conduct research in a large number of fields all connected by applied IT, which researchers approach from different perspectives.

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.

Strong Research Environments in Urgent Fields

At BTH there are three research environments with funding from the Knowledge Foundation (KKS).

  • One focuses on creating resource-efficient systems for the analysis of large amounts of data. The research is conducted in cooperation with a number of companies including Ericsson, Telenor, and Sony Mobile Communications.
  • The other research environment focuses on the production of digital methods and tools to develop the next generation of sustainable products in the manufacturing industry. The research is carried out in collaboration with a number of companies e.g. Volvo, Tetra Pak, and GKN Aerospace.
  • The third focuses on developing new working methods and methods so that Swedish companies can develop future software-intensive products and services in a competitive way. The research is carried out in collaboration with Ericsson, Sony, Telia Company, Handelsbanken, Swedbank, MaxKompetens, Time People Group, Tolpagorni Product Management, QTEMA, and Fortnox.

In addition, BTH runs a major project, funded by the Knowledge Foundation, aimed at developing visual and interactive systems focusing on the human being. The project is conducted in collaboration with WIP, Ericsson, Axis Communications, and Tobii Pro.
