The Faculty has a large percentage of employees, doctoral candidates and students with an international background. We also offer many international Master's programmes taught in English. One of these, Master in Sustainable Urban Transitions, is a Nordic cooperation project.
We cooperate with a number of universities, industry partners and organizations. An example is the cooperation with the European School of Law and Governance (ESLG) in Kosovo and industry partner Multiconsult, which aims at strengthening higher education and research in Kosovo on sustainable, energy efficient buildings.
Our students are encouraged to engage in global issues through courses included in our programs of study. The courses involve fieldwork in other countries, such as China, India and Tibet.
Several of our students have received architectural awards and their work has been published internationally, for architectural projects with a global and social profile. Tyin tegnestue and Workshop (formerly Studio Tacloban) are our most recognized student initiatives.
Staff members are also internationally recognized through research, artistic and architectural work. They exhibit at renowned venues abroad, like the Architecture Biennale in Venice.
The Faculty is also partner in the centre Project Norway.
