Application and selection
While academic achievements are important, the focus of selection into the UNITECH International Programme is on the students personality and skills. The selection is done locally at your home university and involves the local Programme Director and a number of Corporate Partners. This joint approach is part of the UNITECH philosophy.
At Chalmers the courses at masters level are given in English. A good level of English is required to follow lectures and pass the exams, we expect students to have an English level corresponding to at least B2.
Individual study programme
Each student applying to Chalmers within the UNITECH International will have an individually adopted study programme. The exchange programme aims to combine engineering and management courses.
The choice of core engineering subjects will depend on the student's choice and educational background. Students must have achieved an academic level corresponding to at least a BSc in Engineering degree or equivalent, before starting studies at Chalmers.
Search and choose courses
In most cases it's possible to design an adequate programme in English. Students may choose courses from Chalmers Master's Programmes, to see the courses use the search function below:
- Search for a specific master’s programme
- Search for courses open for exchange students
- Search for courses given in English etc.
You can only apply for courses marked with the text “The course is open for exchange students”. We recommend students to follow one master's programme during one semester. However, if mix courses from different programmes, make sure you plan according to study periods and block schedules.
Make sure to select courses from the study periods (sp) you are studying. Fall semester includes sp 1 and 2, spring semester includes sp 3 and 4. Also ake sure to select courses from different blocks to avoid schedule conflicts.
UNITECH students are recommended to select management courses from the following MSc programmes:
- Management and Economics of Innovation
- Quality and Operations Management
- Supply Chain Management
UNITECH students can't select courses from the MSc/BSc programmes below, courses in those programmes are only available for students in the entire programme:
- MSc Entrepreneurship and Business Design
- MSc International Project Management
- MSc Design and Construction Project Management
- BSc Business Development and Entrepreneurship
For incoming students taking part of the UNITECH International programme, accommodation is guaranteed by Chalmers. Accepted UNITECH students will get more information about accomodotaion in May and at the same time they will receive their Letter of Acceptance.
