Chalmers University of Technology

Chalmers University of Technology or Chalmers tekniska högskola is a university in Gothenburg, Sweden. Founded in 1829 following a donation by William Chalmers, a director of the Swedish East India Company, and being run as a private institution until 1937, when the institute became a state owned university. In 1994, this time in the guise of a foundation, Chalmers once again regained its independence.

Approximately 40 per cent of Sweden's graduate engineers and architects were educated at Chalmers. Each year around 250 post graduate degrees are awarded as well as 850 graduate degrees. About 1 000 post graduate students attend programmes at the university and around 5 500 students are taking Master of Science engineering programmes and the Master of Architecture programme.
