"I like that there is a great focus on the future and sustainability"

Published: 5 April 2022

Vincent Kollberg Leeiner is studying The Master Programme in Sustainable Process and Chemical Engineering at Luleå University of Technology.

Why did you choose to study Sustainable Process and Chemical Engineering?  

– I have always had an interest in technology and the forces, building blocks and more that build up the world we live in. But I have had a certain aptitude for chemistry and the interest has been extra large for the really small things like atoms that are everywhere. A world that feels so far away from our own but that affects everything we do .

– So I knew that I wanted to do something with chemistry and that I wanted to study outside Stockholm. I made a list of chemical engineering programs and thought "what can go wrong?" . That is why I ended up in Luleå. Sometimes you have to throw yourself out and dare to bet because there is so much to miss otherwise. It turned out to be quite good for me. In addition to everything you can learn during the training, the company is the best with the program. It is a small class but the quality is good. The community is good and has had many fond memories for the life of this community. A community that I think is unique to our program. We have many fun labs and it feels very professional. The Mineral Technology Club is very impressive and probably one of the foremost in the world in the area. I also like that there is a great focus on the future and sustainability.

What advice would you give to someone who is going to choose education?

For future students, I would like to remind you that it is completely different from high school. The work is difficult and you should be prepared that you will probably have to redo exams and assignments. It resolves itself and one should not allow oneself to be burdened by failed tasks.
