The companies like us

The companies like us, both in research collaborations and when it comes to taking help from our students in courses and thesis projects.

As a student at Luleå University of Technology, you benefit from our close cooperation with companies and society. 

Regardless of which program you choose, you will have the opportunity during the eduction to connect with employers. Many of our courses are given in project form where in a sharp project you work on solving a task for a company or an organization. It can also be your entrance to a future job, an opportunity that many of our former students have taken advantage of. Some innovations developed in our project courses have become so successful that they resulted in patents.

Students in collaboration with the industry

Right now, students at Luleå University of Technology are helping Scania with tests of various coatings that hopefully will reduce friction and abrasion in the engines of heavy vehicles – thereby reducing both wear and fuel consumption.
