Linköping University is a public research university located in Linköping, Sweden, one of the largest universities in the country. It is home to about 32,000 students in a given academic year. Founded in 1975, the university is well regarded for its interdisciplinary courses and research projects.
Over 120 degrees are offered in Linköping taken as a specialized course or as a multidisciplinary course. The university focuses on four major fields, namely medicine and health sciences, arts and sciences, educational sciences and technology.
Known for its academic programs that cut across disciplines, the university for instance combines engineering with management or medicine or law with economics or languages. Its aim is to provide a more holistic view of education in the context of the community at large and practical business needs. Twelve special departments that consist of more than one faculty manage the interdisciplinary degrees.
The faculties are divided into four formal sections: Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Faculty of Educational Sciences, and the Institute of Technology.
As a research institute, Linköping provides students opportunities to pursue postgraduate studies in a wide range of fields: technology, humanities, medicine, natural, educational, behavioral and social sciences. The university is also the first in the country to offer thematic research, crossing over arts and sciences and offering multidisciplinary PhD degrees. Linköping is a top recipient of government research grants for five strategic areas, such as materials science, IT and mobile communication, security and emergency management, and e-science and transport research.
Linköping University traces its roots to the sixties, when the Stockholm University established a branch in the city for humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The following years would see the components of the university being founded, including medical training and technology units in 1969. In the early seventies, the faculty of arts and sciences followed suit and, eventually, Linköping University would be formally established in 1975.
In 1986, the university introduced a first in the country’s educational system by combining problem-solving skills with medical and health training. Linköping would build on this interdisciplinary foundation, which would earn it recognition in the country including an award for excellence in higher education from the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education.
Linköping University is home to notable alumni in politics, business, academics and research. They include Carl-Henric Svanberg (former CEO, Ericsson), Henry Radamson (professor of microelectronics and semiconductor), and Cecilia Widegren (member of the Swedish national legislature).
