Chalmers University of Technology

Chalmers university of technology in Göteborg conducts research and education in engineering and natural sciences, architecture, technology-related mathematical sciences and nautical science in close collaboration with industry and society.

Behind all that Chalmers accomplishes, the aim persists for contributing to a sustainable future – nationally and globally. The pursuit of new knowledge and improved technology has characterized Chalmers ever since its foundation in 1829, due to a donation by William Chalmers (1748–1811). Chalmers was a director of the Swedish East India Company, and donated some of his fortune for the establishment of an "industrial school".

Chalmers educates national and international students and has about 11 000 students every year. Chalmers research and scholarship within the 17 departments promote sustainable development and its application as an overall strategy. The strategy of excellence is further carried out within eight “Areas of Advance”, e.g. material science, energy, nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Chalmers has 2 500 employees, including 1 000 PhDs. The department for chemical and biological engineering, being the biggest department, represents 350 employees, including 200 PhDs. The department performs education and research for sustainable development, for improved health and quality of life. The research covers widely within the field, ranging from natural science and bioscience, applied chemistry and biotechnology to chemical engineering.
