Hi there, Who are you?
- My name is Anders Larsson and I teach and research in the field of Electrical Engineering at LTU.
What are you working on?
- In terms of education, I am a program director of Electrical Engineering, where I also teach a few courses. In addition to that, I conduct a research project on immunity in modern lighting, funded by the Energy Agency, where I work closely with the University of Cordoba. I also sit in some working groups within the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), which works to maintain and develop new standards and regulations.
In what courses do the students meet you?
- The students on the power program meet me in the courses "Introduction to Electricity Technology" and "Electricity, EMC and Power Quality".
How are you as a teacher?
- I strive so much to get the students to think, to investigate and to ask questions.
What is best about teaching?
- When I notice that the students understand and I enroll with them in interesting discussions on the topic.
What do you want the students to receive from your courses?
- Curiosity, to want to learn more.
Why do you think one should study Electrical Engineering at LTU in Skellefteå?
- Partly one should do it out of one’s interest but there is also a great demand of skilled power engineers. Our program has never come out without it being driven by the industry necessity for finding qualified personal.
What do you do in your spare time?
- I like working with practical things, building, renovating, and being in the woods, of course, with my family and my children.
