As a future graduate, you will be entering a world of innovation and change, where disruptive technologies and societal problems rewrite the rules of economics, politics and justice.

These changes are geared towards improving and progressing society, but to stay ahead of these movements, graduates like you can prepare yourself for the evolving industry through gaining an innovative education that fosters an entrepreneurial spirit.

Linköping University (LiU) is helping students realise their individual potential in protecting, progressing and preparing society for these evolving challenges and changes through the range of innovative projects that have a real-world impact.

Technological innovations built at LiU will soon be employed worldwide to lead the world to a more sustainable future, including one project which is protecting some of the world’s most endangered species – including the Black Rhino.

By seamlessly harnessing technology through seven industry-focused engineering master programmes, LiU prepares students like you to tackle these challenges head-on. Ranked in the top 100 universities for telecommunications, electronics, energy systems and materials science, according to the Shanghai Ranking 2018, the university provides an interdisciplinary springboard for success.

The forward-thinking university prides itself on the breadth of its future-focused postgraduate degrees, including a range of Master’s degrees in engineering, technology and sustainability, allowing each student to gain knowledge and expertise in the inherently digital future.

Unafraid to break away from the mould, these Master’s programmes reflect the university’s commitment to innovatively solving societal needs, equipping each student with the skillset and capability to tackle real-world challenges beyond their studies.

In 2017, 19 newly-founded companies were given life to solve burning societal needs, including Epishine, which created the world’s most scalable, resource-efficient and competitively-priced solar cell. You can trust in LiU Innovation to support students, researchers and staff at Linköping University to develop ideas from early concept to finished product or service. The service is confidential and free of charge for students.

The university was originally established to meet the changing needs of Sweden’s business sphere, to better prepare the labour force for future industries and societal trends through research and carefully designed education.

The ongoing research at LiU is focused on creating maximum impact in their industries, allowing each student to be a part of an innovative academic community. From the collection, analysis, and communication of data in Smart Cities to identifying whether patients have a healthy blood flow during cardiovascular disease assessments, students are immersed within an active and influential academic community that prides itself on its adoption of modern research methods.

“On my journey, the lecturers at LiU act as supervisors instead of just knowledge providers, requiring everyone to understand topics by their own means, which leads to valuable discussions and deeper learning,” says Andre Da Luz Moreira, Aeronautical Engineering student.

LiU understands that embracing the technological age is not only necessary to keep up with changing market needs but essential for driving it towards its maximum potential. From biomedical engineering improving quality of life, to sustainable technologies promising a brighter environmental future, students at LiU leave prepared to drive these developments on.

Whether your passion lies in sustainability, engineering or life science, here, you could be part of the global solution.
