A much needed school : The first higher technical education in Trollhättan (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to explain the development of the first higher technical education in Trollhättan, with the added perspective of Trollhättans strong industrial profile as a city. The interesting thing being that the city did not try to first and foremost get a regular higher education, but a technical higher education instead. The study describes the political twists and turns the question took from its most early stage in the year 1940 and how the city's industrial profile did indeed have an impact on the development of the first higher technical education. Especially because there was a need for educated engineers in the city, as well as the country of Sweden in large during this time. The study also tries to explain the problems related to such a development, primarily by describing the lack of sufficient housing for schools during the 1950's, this meant that the higher regular school and the higher technical school had to cooperate in finding said housing. To put the study in context a brief summary of the educational system in large, Trollhättan as an industrial city during the 1940's and 1950's as well as Trollhättans educational system besides higher education, is also included. The resulting study has mostly been achieved by studying relevant sources in Trollhättans city-archives as well as the local paper ”Trollhättans tidning” during the relevant years 1956, 1958 and 1959.
