Luleå University of Technology 50 years

Luleå University of Technology celebrated its 50th anniversary during 2021 and spring 2022. Luleå University (as it was then called) was established in September 1971 with four teachers and 50 students. There are now more than 17,000 students, 1 700 employee, 67 research subjects and the university has a turnover of 1.8 billion. That was worth celebrating!
