​Chalmers' Education is divided into five educational areas

Four of the educational areas are responsible for the educational programmes within their respective subject areas and the fifth area comprises all education in lifelong learning, regardless of subject area. In practice, this means that each educational area is responsible for ensuring that thousands of students receive progressive education of high standard.​
