First and foremost, I want to congratulate you on your admission and welcome you to LTH. My name is Fredric Ahrling, and I am the President of the Students’ union at the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, also known as Teknologkåren or TLTH. I am also a student but have taken a break from my studies to work full-time on matters concerning us students at LTH.
The student years can be a fantastic period in life, but they can also be filled with challenges. As a rock to lean on in the storm, we have Teknologkåren to add some extra sparkle to those wonderful moments and to provide comfort and support when times get tough.
Among other things, Teknologkåren ensures that the courses you take are evaluated and constantly improved. Through our job fair, ARKAD, you can find summer jobs or get an idea of what you can engage in once your studies are over. Lastly, we organize a wide range of social events and parties. There's always something fun happening at Teknologkåren!
Your first encounter with Teknologkåren will likely be through your Guild. Depending on the program you are studying, you will be assigned to one of our eleven Guilds, which have special knowledge about matters concerning you and your fellow students. Through the Guild’s Introduction period, you will have the opportunity to find study buddies and, of course, have an incredibly enjoyable time. Being a Nolla/Novisch (first-year student) is perhaps the greatest thing one can be here at LTH, so I truly hope you enjoy this time!
Lastly, I and everyone else at Teknologkåren are really looking forward to meeting you, so please feel free to approach us and say hello. If you have any questions, you can always reach out, and I promise: we will never let you down!
See you in the fall,
President of the Students’ Union at the Faculty of Engineering, Teknologkåren 23/24
