Overview

As a society, we have entered an age of digitisation – the fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0. This puts new demands on future engineers. With training central to the development of smart factories, including automation, industry robots and simulation technology, you will be keenly sought after.

University West is Sweden’s leading university when it comes to work-integrated learning (WIL). The university was tasked with the development of WIL by the Swedish government 15+ years ago and continues to lead the field today.

WIL allows you to put your knowledge and skills into practice within real-world contexts, including carrying out practical tasks, conducting lab work and completing projects most often in close cooperation with industry. The coursework offers a focus on applications for industry and is created through collaboration between industry and researchers. Your studies will have an emphasis on problem-based learning for industry.
