LNU Sweden - Student Exchange Programm in Business Information Systems
The German-Swedish research project „Service-Oriented Computing“ aims at the expansion of international student exchange and joint research activities between the Department of Computer Science and Business Information Systems of the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences (HsKA) and the School of Computer Science, Physics and Mathematics of the Linnaeus University (LNU) in Växjö, Schweden. The student exchange focuses on the completion of a scientific thesis during the studies abroad.
Focal Point of Research
The focal point of the research project is the so-called Service-Oriented Computing which deals with the creation of programs through services. It includes many current subjects such as
- services in the cloud and their
- design, implementation, integration, operation and management, change, quality and security
which could be researched as part of a final thesis.

Växjö and Kalmar - Sweden
Linnaeus University (LNU)
Växjö is surrounded by seven lakes and by natural forest. It is one of Sweden’s most attractive campuses – student accommodation, university rooms, a large library, shops, restaurants, lakes, sports grounds and recreation areas are all within a few minutes' walk.
Kalmar, situated on the Baltic Sea, is one of Sweden’s oldest cities. The university buildings are in the centre and are therefore close to a choice of restaurants, shops and places of entertainment.
The School of Computer Science, Physics and Mathematics is one of 12 schools at Linnaeus University. LNU pursues teaching and research in the cities of Växjö and Kalmar, in the province Småland in south-east Sweden. With 35,000 students and 2,000 employees, it’s one of the largest universities in Sweden.
LNU is involved in many international exchange programs for students and staff. Every year, more than 2,000 international students from all over the world come to study at LNU.
“Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM for University Students – BWS plus” is supported by the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung. It is investing € 90,000 to expand and develop the student exchange program between the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences (HsKA) and the Swedish Linnaeus University (LNU).
Within three years, 15 students will be given the opportunity to prepare their bachelor or master theses for the duration of one term at the respective partner university. These students will receive scholarships and financial support for their travel expenses.
This research project is one of ten projects at various universities in Baden-Württemberg that are currently being funded. “BWS plus” is a new scholarship program of the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM through which the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung has been supporting international student exchange for ten years.
