Brief Description of Organization:

NTNU has about 20000 students of which roughly 50 % are in technology. NTNU educates about 80 % of all Norwegian university graduates in technology, and almost all PhD’s in that field (ca. 200 each year). Some strength areas that may be of interest are IKT, structural analysis and marine technology and electrical grids.
NTNU has more than 100 laboratories, some of them quite large, indeed the ocean laboratory is among the largest in the word. NTNU has the usual study programmes in Civil, cemical, electrical engineering, etc. but also have a special study programme in Marine technology and another in Energy and environment. NTNU cooperates extensively with its spin-off, the research organization SINTEF, which is the largest research organisation in Scandinavia with about 2000 employees. SINTEF, NTNU and an Oslo.-based research organization, IFE, have established a Research centre for Offshore Wind Technology with a yearly budget of about 5 mill € a year for 8 years.
