What is Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) best known for?

Strong collaborations with society

Our education focuses on society’s future needs and challenges and is carried out in close collaboration with society at large. The educational environment supports the students in becoming good colleagues, leaders, and innovators with the knowledge and ability to predict and generate changes and external engagement with society. The private sector contributes by making us more attractive to ensure that our education and research maintain high quality and relevance.

Studies in the middle of the archipelago

Our campus in Karlskrona is situated by the Baltic Sea, beside a Unesco world heritage site and in the middle of the archipelago, surrounded by 1600 islands. Here, you can make a career and, at the same time, enjoy a relaxing archipelago environment.

As a student at BTH, you are encouraged to think independently, creatively and critically. During your studies, you’ll learn how to balance different interests, needs and ideas to bring out the best in your peers and solve complex issues as a team. This will give you essential skills for your global
career, where teamwork across cultures is the norm. The study environment is clean and safe, and you will be able to use English with everyone you meet.

The region is characterised by its proximity to Europe and desire for innovation powered by the global companies found here. Together with our partners, we build the future we want to see.
