Overview

is a research-intensive university, continuously rated as the best known as well as the best reputed university in Sweden, in annual public surveys. Chalmers also gets top scores on learning by students in the International Students Barometer.

With more than 70 nationalities represented and 39 English taught two-year master’s programmes Chalmers is a highly progressive international university. Out of 10 000 students, 1 000 are international master’s students. Campus life is welcoming, generous and diverse. The location in Gothenburg, Sweden’s second biggest city, on the beautiful west coast makes for great times, studies aside, whether you prefer outdoor life or urban pleasures.

The learning atmosphere is open-minded and informal, encouraging independent thinking and creativity in the tackling of intricate real-life problems with theoretical knowledge – a fertile environment for innovation. With this comes a genuine entrepreneurial spirit, embodied in the subsidiary Chalmers Ventures. Its highly ranked business incubators, are making sure new ideas finds their way to commercial use.

Founded as an industry school for poor children in 1829 Chalmers University of Technology has been deeply rooted in the needs of the industry and committed to societal development ever since.

The spirit of the Chalmers legacy is expressed in the vision – for a sustainable future. A vision, not to be cherished by a chosen few specialising in sustainability matters. Instead, the vision is permeating all activities at the university: research, education, utilisation and daily life on two campuses. Courses addressing environmental issues and sustainability has been integrated in all programmes for more than three decades.

Chalmers University of Technology conducts research in a number of cutting edge infrastructures, such as its clean room, Onsala Space Observatory and AstaZero – the world’s first full-scale test environment for road safety. One of Europe’s biggest ever research initiatives, the Graphene Flagship with a budget of € 1 billion, is coordinated by Chalmers.

As part of a profound commitment to utilisation, Chalmers has strategic partnerships with internationally renowned high-tech companies such as Volvo, Ericsson, SKF and AstraZeneca. The close links to industry and society characterises the education as well as the research conducted at the university, and it provides excellent career opportunities for students.

Chalmers University of Technology has twolarge campuses in Gothenburg. Both campus areas are near the centre of the cityand there are good bus links between them. Each campus has a science parknearby where numerous companies have established their activities, bridging education and industry.

Campus Johanneberg 

Theoldest and largest campus is located in the city district of Johanneberg. Thisis where some of the teaching and a great deal of the research areconducted. Those of you who are studying to become architects or engineerswill take most of your courses at Campus Johanneberg. The campus is also hometo the Student Union building.

Campus Lindholmen 

CampusLindholmen is located to the north of the Göta river, on NorraÄlvstranden, in one of the most modern and most rapidly expanding citydistricts. The area is swarming with innovative companies within mobile communications,intelligent transport and the modern media industry.

Research Facilities
Chalmers has several advancedresearch facilities on campus, serving the different types of researchconducted here. Master’s students have access to these facilities during theirstudies, depending on the type of assignments and projects that they undertake.Here are some examples.


Chalmers Centre for Computational Science andEngineering (C3SE) is Chalmers' infrastructure for demanding computingcalculations and data storage. It provides researchers with hardware resourcesas well as software and knowledge of numerical modelling, simulation andanalysis.

The Lindholmen campus has the most comprehensivesimulation equipment for training and research in maritime operations.
Thereare a number of different simulators here representing different parts of avessel and functions on shore. Several of the simulators are connected whichmakes it possible to simulate complex scenarios.The Simulator Centre is usedfor training aspiring marine officers in advanced operations, includingpreventing and mitigating the consequences of accidents at sea. It is also usedin domestic and international research projects with participants fromacademia, maritime authorities and maritime industries.

Chalmers Power Central is an advanced energy researchfacility based at the Johanneberg campus.
Cutting edge research in combustionand gasification of biomass is carried out here in a large-scale researchboiler along with flaming combustion and carbon capture. The Power Central alsosupplies the campus with electricity, heating, cooling and compressed air. 
Based on thorough intelligence analysis, operationsare steered towards the most relevant research questions and the equipment isbeing continuously updated accordingly.

 

The HSB Living Lab is a collaboration project,consisting of 30 apartments for students and visiting researchers on theJohanneberg campus. 
Besides providing residential accommodation, thebuilding serves as a laboratory for the researchers − a living laboratory. Thisprovides a great opportunity to conduct research into sustainable innovationsin real-life residential environments. Measurements are collected throughsensors in the building, where water recycling, solar panels, smart bookingsystems, electricity consumption and sustainable building materials andcomponents are tested and evaluated.


The Onsala Space Observatory is a national facilityfor radio astronomy operated by Chalmers on behalf of the Swedish ResearchCouncil. The facility is located on the Onsala peninsula, 45 km south ofGothenburg. 
The area is home to e.g. a 25-metre radio telescope, and a20-metre radio telescope for millimetre waves and the Swedish station in theEuropean radio telescope Lofar. Onsala Space Observatory is also involved inthe development of instruments for shorter wavelengths, such as for the Sesttelescopes and Apex in the Andes in South America. Techniques developed forradio astronomy are also well suited for observations of the Earth and itsatmosphere. Research at the observatory therefore also deals with themeasurement of the Earth, navigation and remote analysis. A new instrument –the Onsala twin telescope – is in the process of being acquired to accuratelydetermine continental drift.


The Nanofabrication Laboratory is a clean roomfacility for research and development in micro and nanotechnology. Here youwill find a wide range of equipment for developing and testing new ideas on amicro and nano scale.

The Nanofabrication Laboratory is part of the nationalresearch infrastructure Myfab, and is the national node for nanolithography,which is a method for producing patterns in the nanometre scale. Chalmers'expertise and extensive experience in nanolithography forms the basis for twostrategic areas in which microwave electronics and photonics is one, whilequantum components is the other. Here you have a complete laboratory fitted outto perform all the steps from material growth to components and circuits.

 

TheNational Laboratory in Terahertz Characterisation

The national laboratory in terahertz characterisationis a unique laboratory for the development of technology in the hard to reachterahertz frequency range, i.e. frequencies of the order of a trillion cyclesper second.
The vision is to become one of the three most complete and advancedmeasurement laboratories for high frequencies, open to users from all aroundthe world. A new generation of instruments allows measurements at frequenciesup to and above one terahertz. The equipment is adapted to suit multipleresearch areas: materials, components, circuits, systems, and antennas for highfrequencies.

The purpose of the laboratory is simply to provideaccess to advanced experimental methods for materials research, both forChalmers researchers as well as researchers from other universities andindustry.

The base for the laboratory is a collection ofinstruments of various types of high-resolution, world-class electronmicroscopes, known as atom probes and equipment to prepare samples prior toelectron microscopy. There is also equipment here for optical spectroscopy,surface analysis and chemical characterisation.
