Chalmers University of Technology is situated on the beautiful west coast of Sweden, with two pleasant campuses in the centre of Gothenburg.
Chalmers University of Technology

Chalmers University of Technology conducts research and teaches within the scope of environmental questions as well as within the broader perspective of sustainable development.

Chalmers’ ambition to contribute to sustainable development is based on the work carried out in departments in the form of research and teaching.

Many of the great questions of the future - to which Chalmers wishes to contribute by developing knowledge and technology in the form of teaching and research - deal with both environmental questions and the broader perspective of sustainable development. Here we are to a great extent dependent on an interplay between many different disciplines, both within and outside Chalmers. To help us we have several different centres and networks.
