Fast track Electric power technology

Published: 4 April 2022

The training package in Electrical Engineering consists of eight courses over 26 weeks. Participants receive higher education credits for each completed course.

To be eligible for this fast track, you need to have a diploma (bachelor's degree) and have studied Swedish as a second language. You must also send in your CV and personal letter in Swedish. For Snabbspår Elkraftteknik, you also need to show proof that you have studied English. You must be registered with the Swedish Public Employment Service (Arbetsförmedlingen).

You can no longer make a late registration. Contact the Swedish Public Employment Service (Arbetsförmedlingen) for more information.

  • Teaching takes place at a distance via Zoom and the teacher platform Canvas
