Jönköping University, a private institution of higher education founded in 1994, has approximately 12,000 students, 1,300 of which are international students from 72 countries. The School of Engineering is one of four schools constituting Jönköping University and hosts approximately 2,500 students.

Jönköping is in the south of Sweden, was founded in the 13th Century, and is one of the ten largest municipalities in the country, with a population of 123,500. Jönköping is the provincial capital and administrative center for Jönköping County. It houses government agencies as well as legal and judicial authorities.
