About Linköping University

Linköping University will never rest on its laurels.

In close collaboration with the business world and society,
Linköping University (LiU) conducts world-leading, boundarycrossing
research in fields including 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.
