Informationsteknologi Institutionen för informationsteknologi | The IT department is: Among the leading departments in Europe in the IT area according to an investigation by the University vice Chancellor, The third largest department at Uppsala University. The most complete department: - in Uppsala (balance between edu. & research) - in Sweden (unique coverage of IT)
Informationsteknologi Institutionen för informationsteknologi | The IT department in Sweden Uppsala Univ Royal Institute of Technology Lund Univ Chalmers Institute Of Technology The strenght of Computer Science/Mathematics at Swedish Universities, according to a recent Governmental enquiry (SOU 2007:81, Nov 2007) The numbers are equivalent number of full time researchers performing on world average level. In Uppsala this is accomplished by about half that number of researchers. The analysis is based on bibliometry.
