Luleå University of Technology educates officers

Published: 19 February 2018

Now will Luleå University of Technology train 13 officers from F21 in Luleå and I19 in Boden and Arvidsjaur. – We are one of four universities in Sweden who can provide this kind of academic education to the Swedish Armed Forces, says Kent Nilsson who is responsible for the education.

Participants will study a course in scientific method and write an independent work relating to organization and management in connection with their occupations. The two courses together comprise 22.5 higher education credits and are part of the officers training.

Fredrik Juhlin, fighter pilot at F21, is one of the participants.

– We have received a warm welcome by everyone. I have some college credits from a previous education. I have not thought about my independent work, but I'm looking forward to getting the academic foundation needed to get it done.

Teachers at the course are Johan Sandström, Professor of Business Administration, and Monika Kurkkio, Senior Lecturer in Accounting and Control.

– It feels exciting and a little different to teach these courses. All of them have practical knowledge and experience which they will be able to apply in their studies, says Monika Kurkkio.

The courses take place February 19 to June 15.
