Most of the education and research at the University takes place at departments.
Departments carry out education as well as research within one or several related fields. The department is the primary workplace, not just for students, teachers and researchers, but also for other professionals such as administrators, service staff, technicians and instrument makers. The department is normally led by a departmental board where at least two students are members. The manager of every department has the title head of department (in Swedish: prefekt).
