Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology

Department of Civil and Transport Engineering


The majority of courses taught at the department support the popular 5 year integrated master's degree 

programme in Civil and Transport Engineering, while we also offer about 25 PhD level courses and a number of international masters courses


While we primarily conduct basic research, we also engage in commissioned research initiatives in cooperation with well known partners in industry and the public sector. The department has four research groups:

Building & Construction EngineeringGeotechnical EngineeringMarine Civil EngineeringRoad & Transport

Research is often cross-disciplinary, involving two or more of our research groups as well as other research environments both here in Norway and abroad. This makes it possible for our students to work on real-life issues and actual problems as they specialize.
