All courses are open to all students at Chalmers in year 2-5 and alumni. Course-specific prerequisites for each course (basic: level: TRA100 and advanced level: TRA105) are described in the syllabus that is found in the Study portal.
All courses are presented below and as a student you may also read more about the courses on the Page "Tracks for students" in Canvas. In Canvas, or here, you will also find the latest Student information presentation from the Spring of 2021.
Apply as an alumni
The application procedure for you who are an alumni is the same as for Chalmers students, as described above.
It can be good to know that the schedules are determined at the beginning of each course in a dialogue between participants and teachers. In the table below you will find more information about courses and application dates.
The themes for courses during the round of 20/21 are Emerging technologies - from science to innovation, Sustainable transport, Health and sports technology, Sustainable cities, and Sustainable production.
All courses below may be used as elective courses. There are four deadlines per year for applications to the courses - two weeks before every study period starts. See specific details for the courses in the table below.
For students interested in sustainable production and sustainable products it may be interesting to look into the course KBT135 Waste management (not a Tracks course) which is open for all students on master's level. Read more about the course at the Study portal.
courses are given three times as long as at least five students have
been given a place in the course. If there are no applicants for a
course, it will be closed. The courses are evaluated on an ongoing basis
and can be given an additional three times if the interest is large.
There will be a maximum of six courses under each theme (not including
summer courses). Tracks courses can be used as elective courses or
