Blekinge Institute of Technology
Life at BTH
Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) is one of Sweden's most interesting and beautiful places for higher education! BTH is also the most distinctly profiled institute in Sweden, thanks to our strong emphasis on applied information technology and innovation for sustainable growth.
BTH was founded in 1989 which means that we are a young institute who manage education and research in new ways, but still with good quality.
The humanities, social sciences, management and health sciences are all integrated into an applied IT profile that enables technology and the humanities to develop in exciting new directions. Teaching and research at BTH are of a high international standard, with practical learning serving as the focal point for students, teachers and researchers. The emphasis on research, especially cutting edge research, in all our degree programmes is designed to preserve the vital link between education and research.
In addition to the large number of nationalities represented on the faculty level, international students from all over the world give us a truly international environment.
Two Campuses in the South-Eastern part of Sweden
BTH is located in the county Blekinge in the south-eastern part of Sweden and has campuses in Karlskrona and Karlshamn. Both these towns were founded in the late 1600's, which means that you can pass through old-fashioned neighborhoods when you walk or ride the bus to the brand-new buildings that form our campuses.
The campuses are both on the seafront and it is not unusual that visitors say that BTH has Sweden's most beautifully situated campuses. Although both Karlskrona and Karlshamn are rather small towns, the large metropolises Copenhagen and Stockholm are not far away. It takes only some 50 minutes to fly to Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, and you can reach Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, by train in four hours.
Our campuses are ideal for outdoor activities, but they are still close to whatever practicalities you need in everyday life. Food stores, shops, cinemas, pubs - everything is easily reached.
