Skills development within smart industry, digitalisation and IT

Digitisation affects everyone’s daily life, big and small, on the professional level as well as on the private level. Some changes happen so slowly that we barely notice them, others are more abrupt. The development creates new behavioural patterns, new habits, new markets, new products and new services, which require new routines and ways of working and, in some cases, also organisational changes. Above all, it requires new knowledge and continuing professional development for a new everyday life.

Sweden’s latest strategy for new industrialisation, Smart industry, attaches great importance to design, innovation, problem-solving, and digitisation. The strategy focuses on, among other things, Industry 4.0, sustainable production and, not least, an industrial skills boost. Therefore, Linnaeus University wants to help you build the right competency.

We have courses in our regular selection of courses offered that are adapted to practicing professionals, which can be combined with your regular work, but we also offer tailor-made courses/training programmes based on the specific needs of companies and organisations – so-called contract education.

If you wish to receive information about new courses and course instances and other interesting developments within the field, subscribe to our newsletter.

Linnaeus University collaborates with other universities when it comes to courses for professionals, both our courses and courses from other universities can be found at:

Tailor-made education

Our tailor-made educations always focus on the needs you have in your organisation or company. When we design a tailor-made education it is our task to, together with you, develop and adapt the education in order to meet the challenges and needs you have at your organisation or company.

A tailor-made education can consist of lectures, courses or be a multi-year programme. The education can be offered at one of our campuses, in distance format or in boarding school format. Your decision! You will also take part in decisions concerning the content and structure of the education. Moreover, you get to decide whether the education should generate credits or not.

When you order a tailor-made education from us we always strive to create value for your organisation and to make sure you experience concrete results and lasting improvements. We offer a broad spectrum of knowledge and different skills which can be combined in a number of different ways and it is our hope that you decide to benefit from this.

If you have any questions or are interested in a tailor-made education, do not hesitate to contact us and we will tell you more.
