Chalmers University of Technology

Published on 10 October 2021

Chalmers University of Technology (CHALMERS) was founded in 1829 following a donation by William Chalmers and became a governmental university with authority to award Ph.D. degrees in 1937. Since 1994, CHALMERS is an independent foundation university. CHALMERS offers M.Sc. Eng., M.Arch., B.Sc. Eng., Nautical, Licentiate and Ph.D. programs, as well as continued development programs for professionals. CHALMERS has about 11,000 students and 2700 employees. Each year around 350 Ph.D. and Licentiate degrees are awarded as well as 1000 M.Sc. Eng. and M. Arch. degrees. Around 40% of Sweden's graduate engineers and architects have been educated at CHALMERS.

CHALMERS is represented by the Dept. of Electrical Engineering, Communication Systems (ComSys) group and the Dept. of Microtechnology and Nanoscience, Microwave Electronics Laboratory (MEL). ComSys currently employs 9 faculty and about 35 graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. Around 50 companies, research institutes, and universities worldwide have partnered with ComSys in on-going competence centres and projects, related to all aspects of wireless and wired communication systems. MEL is a world-leading group in utilizing ultrawideband integrated circuits and systems for frequencies above 100 GHz and has recently, together with industrial partners, demonstrated novel wireless communication systems in the D-band (110-170 GHz), opening up commercial applications in this frequency band.
