Humanity faces enormous challenges in the areas of energy, environment, raw matters, water resources and security. By research and education in the areas of mining, civil and environmental engineering, we take responsibility for the development of a sustainable society.
Our research and education are characterized by a strong experimental and applied profile with several large and well-equipped laboratories. All activities are quality assured by our dedicated professors and lecturers in an exclusive and successful collaboration with industry and the public sector. 70% of our research is externally funded and we have well-developed international collaborations with universities in all continents.
We are about 350 people and 50 nationalities, including about 200 doctoral students and more than 50 professors. You can find us in the F- and C-houses on campus in Luleå.
