General description


Luleå University of Technology was established in 1971 and today has 17 200 students (50 % women and 50 % men) and 1 770 staff (48 % women and 52 % men). 43 % of the turnover is education and 57 % research. Research and education are characterized by a strong experimental and applied profile with several large and well-equipped laboratories. LTU is profiled on applied research and has the highest proportion of corporate funded research among Swedish universities. LTU’s research is conducted in close collaboration with industries and big companies such as LKAB, SSAB, Ericsson, Boliden, ABB, Epiroc and leading international universities. Luleå University of Technology offers seven different research groups willing to act as hosts during secondments: Chemistry of Interfaces, Industrial AI and eMaintenance, Engineering Materials, Urban Water Engineering, Structural Engineering, Process Metallurgy, Atmospheric Science and Space Systems. Luleå University of Technology received the HR Excellence in Research Award in 2018.
