At NTNU, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, we create knowledge for a better world and solutions that can change everyday life.
NTNU has the main responsibility for higher education in technology in Norway, and it is the country’s premier institution for the education of engineers. The university offers several programmes of professional study and a broad academic curriculum in the social sciences, teacher education, humanities, medicine and health sciences, economics, finance and administration, as well as architecture and the arts.
NTNU has four strategic areas of research in 2014–2023: NTNU Sustainability, NTNU Energy, NTNU Oceans and NTNU Health. Biotechnology, ICT and nanotechnology are NTNU’s strategic initiatives in enabling technologies during the period 2011–2020.
NTNU has an extensive international network with NTNU offices in Japan and Brussels (together with the University of Bergen and SINTEF).
