About Linköping University

Linköping University will never rest on its laurels.

Linköping University conducts world-leading, boundary-crossing research in close collaboration with the business world and society, in fields that include materials science, IT and hearing. In the same spirit, the university offers many innovative educational programmes, many of them with a clear vocational focus, leading to qualification as, for example, doctors, teachers, economists and engineers. 

The university has 27,000 students and 4,000 employees on four campuses. Together we seek answers to the complex questions facing us today. Our students are among the most desirable in the labour market and international rankings consistently place LiU as a leading global university. 

LiU achieved university status in 1975 and innovation is our only tradition.
