LTH is one of Sweden’s largest engineering faculties and is the biggest faculty at Lund University. Our researchers and PhD students conduct research within both traditional engineering disciplines and newer ones with links to medicine, natural sciences, environment and design. Our research leads the world in a number of areas. These include nanotechnology, combustion physics as well as medical technology.
LTH's strategies are based on diversity and cross-boundary cooperation and are characterised by gender equality, participation, quality and renewal.
LTH, is home to almost 10,000 students and 1,500 employees from all over the world. Most of our programmes are taught in Lund, but a few are housed at the campus in Helsingborg and the School of Aviation is located in Ljungbyhed.

World-class research facilities
Two of the world’s leading material research facilities are currently being built in Lund: MAX IV, which will be the world’s brightest synchrotron light source, and ESS, which will be home to the world’s most powerful neutron source. Both of these research facilities will have a significant impact on scientific and industrial developments in the future.
