Here’s five good reasons:

1. Close to research and industry

Our Master's programmes are research-oriented with a strong connection to world-class research environments. They also collaborate closely with the industry, which will give you a competitive edge on the global market. For instance, you will work in real research projects together with senior researchers, and often with our partner companies.

2. Inspiring study environment

At the university, we have first-class facilities and high tech equipment. Campus Sundsvall has lovely scenery, with leafy trees and a beautiful promenade along the river. “Åkroken” – the heart of the campus – was built in the 1990s as a city within the city, with alleys and squares, bridges and landing-stages.
