Projects and Lab

Our teaching methods create a safe learning environment and individual contact between teacher and student. Major elements of the project tasks and assignments are included in many courses. At LTU, we are eager to practice and performance in research and development will also provide added value in education. We achieve this by our professors and researchers and specialists from industry involved in teaching.

"One of the biggest challenges for
     tomorrow is the transition to a
         sustainable society "

We are convinced that performance in research and development provides added value in education and therefore our classes are taught by professors, researchers and specialists directly from industry. This program teaches students how to use applied processes required for a sustainable supply of raw materials and resources. We grant a broad range of skills and the potential for future work in the production of renewable fuels, minerals, metal or paper products.
