The Faculty of Technology and Society (TS), conducts education and research with a focus on technology and natural sciences, in close collaboration with industry and other social actors and higher education institutions. The two departments at the faculty are: Computer Science and Media Technology and Materials Science and Applied Mathematics.
The Faculty of Technology and Society provides courses and study programmes in computer science, construction engineering, machinery and materials science, natural sciences, media technology and applied mathematics. Guest lecturers, study visits and project courses with external clients are a natural part of the faculty’s activities.
Our ambition is also for students to do student projects and degree projects together with parties outside the higher education system.
The faculty conducts research in building technology, computer science, materials science and applied mathematics and media technology. The different research groups work in an interdisciplinary manner in research groups both within and outside the university.
At Technology and Society, we have doctoral studies in Computer Science and Applied Physics. In order to be admitted to postgraduate education, you must be employed as a doctoral student at the same time.
Collaboration with external parties has increased significantly in recent years. It is an expressed ambition for Technology and Society to collaborate with companies, organisations and government agencies so as to raise levels of competence, create new products and develop organisations. Please contact the faculty or our departments if you have suggestions for collaboration with researchers or students.
