School of Engineering

The School of Engineering is one of four schools that are part of Jönköping University. It is our vision to be leaders in Europe in developing and spreading new technology and knowledge that reinforce the international competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises.

The School of Engineering focuses on preparing students for achievement in business and developing specific working methods aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises.

Courses have a broad technical knowledge base to equip students with engineering skills and stimulate an entrepreneurial spirit. The educational programmes are unique in that they also provide knowledge from topic areas other than technology, such as leadership, communication, business and ecology.

JU Solar Team is a group of eleven students and two teachers with different background, education and experiences. They have a common goal: that the team will design the optimal solar car to travel 3000 km across Australia. JU Solar Team »


The School of Engineering offers education at bachelor, masters and doctoral levels (first, second and third-cycle levels), and 2-year courses at university college level and higher vocational education level. Contact with industry is an important part of our education in order to ensure that the education is anchored in reality, and to acquire practical experience.


Research and third-cycle education are targeted at Industrial product realisation in cooperation, especially applications for small and medium-sized enterprises. Research takes place in collaboration with companies, research institutes and other university colleges of technology, in common projects.


The School of Engineering is a member of the CDIO Initiative™, a prestigious collaborative between leading engineering schools worldwide. The CDIO Initiative is an innovative educational framework to conceive and develop a new vision of engineering education and for producing the next generation of engineers.


School of Engineering collaborate extensively with industry in order to give our students education that will meet market demands. The collaboration gives the students the opportunity to have close contact with a company during the education and thereby combine theory with practice.

Doctoral Programmes

Research education within other third-cycle subject areas is carried out in close collaboration with other universities that have the entitlements. The School of Engineering has collaboration agreements with Chalmers University of Technology, the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the Institute of Technology at Linköping University.
