Overview

The Chalmers University of Technology is one of the most prominent universities in Sweden. Based in Gothenburg, the institution is known for its strong engineering program, high research output, and graduate employability. The private technical university produces around 40% of the country’s architecture and engineering graduates. It is also a member of the European Universities Association and the IDEA League, which brings together five of Europe’s top universities of technology.
Chalmers is organized into 13 academic departments, which include several branches of Engineering, Computer Science, Materials Science, Physics, and Technology Management. It offers around 30 undergraduate and 40 master’s programs. Among these, the most highly regarded ones are Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Civil Engineering, Architecture, and Materials Science.
Research in Chalmers is largely conducted in its 75 centers, consolidated by its six themes: energy, health engineering, information and communication technology, materials science, production, and transport. It also maintains a business hub called Chalmers E-village that supports startup companies and fosters collaborations between students and researchers.
Chalmers has three campuses: the Johanneberg campus, the Lindholmen campus, and the Onsala Space Observatory. Collectively, the university has four libraries, a variety of learning environments, and more than 2,000 student housing units. Students get to experience the university’s prototypes of new technologies for sustainable development, the likes of which include a delivery robot, self-driving minibuses, and apps that streamline transport.
Established in 1829, the Chalmers University of Technology was founded after Swedish East India Company Director William Chalmers funded the development of an industrial school for poor children. Initially ran as a private university, it became state-owned in 1937 before being registered as a limited company under the Swedish Government.
As of 2020, Chalmers houses more than 10,000 students and 3,100 employees. It has forged partnerships with large enterprises in the region like Volvo and Ericsson and participates in exchange programs with other universities. Furthermore, the university has hundreds of European Union-funded research projects in its portfolio, including the Graphene Flagship and the development of a quantum computer.
Notably, Chalmers has produced alumni who became successful in a wide variety of fields. They include PewDiePie (YouTuber), Gustaf Dalén (industrialist), Leif Johansson (Volvo CEO), Gert Wingårdh (architect), Carl Abraham Pihl (civil engineer), and Linn Berggren (singer).
As a university of technology, Chalmers aims to furnish solutions that benefit individuals and societies, underpinned on high levels of instruction, research, and partnerships. The university also holds sustainability in high regard with its “Chalmers for a Sustainable Future” campaign, which has led to the development of new technology being leveraged in its campuses.
