Linnaeus University, Faculty of Technology

Introduction

Research at the Faculty of Technology

Wood is one material which has followed human beings throughout their history. The region around Växjö is one of the most important areas in Europe with regards to forest exploitation and the forestry industry. Linnaeus University’s research on the theme of wood and energy technology is both internationally recognized and vital for the industry in the region. These initiatives encompass the research profiles of bioenergy, forestry and wood technology together with wood building-construction.

Other subjects within the faculty are computer engineering, informatics, media technology, mathematics, mathematics education, physics and electrical engineering.

Within the area of media technology/informatics, the Center for Learning and Knowledge Technologies (CeLeKT) constitutes a research environment which focuses on information technology and innovative learning methods.

Kalmar Maritime Academy offers vocationally-orientated degree programmes, commissioned education and an expanding area of research in close proximity to the real world of merchant shipping. World class simulators, the Calmare Nyckel training vessel and modern facilities for practical work are a natural part of the working organization at the Maritime Academy, which has a close dialogue with the shipping industry.

Cooperation at the Faculty of Technology

Cooperation – increasingly important

Linnaeus University cooperates with the surrounding society through education and research. The objective of our cooperation is, among other things, to improve education, develop knowledge and growth.

Evolution needs change which, in its turn, means new perspectives. This is something our researchers and students can help you with. Together you will be able to create ideas that make your organization more competitive while at the same time making our education more attractive.

We can cooperate through research and development but also by giving members of your staff new abilities through commissioned programs or courses.

You may also want one of our students to take an internship with you or write their thesis at your company.

Teachers and researchers of the Faculty can also be invited for speaking at your company/organization.

Partners

It is of utmost importance that our students have knowledge about the working life ahead. Through contact with our partners, they are able to get it.

Research and Development

We cooperate with business organizations and institutes such as "SP, Sveriges Tekniska Forskningsinstitut", "CBBT Centrum för byggande och boende med trä", the industry cluster "Tunga fordon", "LRF Skogsägare", "SLU enheten för sydsvensk skogsvetenskap" and "Asa försökspark och fältforskningsstation".

Networks

The Faculty of Technology participates in a number of networks. One of them is "GoTech" which aims to strengthen the development of technical competence in the region.

In the field of mathematics didactics we have a network called "Matematikutvecklarna", with participants from the region and the network "Speciallärare i Matematik".

There is also a network for Digital Media in the forestry sector.

Commissioned Education

We offer a comprehensive range of courses in the maritime area.

We conduct labor market training on behalf of the Swedish employment office. "Korta Vägen" (the short route) is a course in Swedish, culture and IT, with the prospect of increasing foreign academics´ possibilities of getting work according to their previous academic training.

Cooperation with companies

We aim to increase cooperation with regional companies. Is your company in need of support, technical or academic knowledge in any way?

Through cooperation, we spread our research and experience and create a forum for contact. Cooperation with Linnaeus University will allow for your organization to grow and help you solve problems.

Cooperation with museums

Mathematics Didactics cooperate with Kalmar Läns Museum in the project "Matematik i kulturmiljön". There is also cooperation with Kenyatta University and National Museums of Kenya.

Cooperation with schools

We are engaged in a number of ways in schools. Through cooperation with elementary schools, we help create an environment where technical interest is promoted.

International cooperation

Exchange students coming to the Faculty of Technology have the possibility of taking courses as well as master programs in English.

A long-term objective of increasing student mobility among Swedish students is already starting to pay off.
