For students

The Concept Research Programme and cooperating professional entities welcome students who are about to write their project report or Master thesis. We can suggest tangible problems of current interest to study and provide access to data and supervision. Involvement of students help broaden our professional scope and bring in new ideas. Occasionally we also recruit students as research assistants.

Concept is an interdisciplinary research programme. We have a broad professional network in the public and private sectors as well as research communities in Norway and abroad. We seek students from different institutes and faculties at NTNU, the most relevant being:

  • Civil and Environmental Engineering
  • Industrial Economics and Technology Management
  • Economics
  • Mechanical and Industrial Engineering
  • Architectural Design and Management
  • Urban Design and Planning
  • Sociology and Political Science
  • Computer and Information Science

We can offer guidance and support, as well as access to data. In some cases we provide financial support to cover expenses related to travel and other project activities.

Below is a note with more information about being a student affiliated with Concept, and it also suggests a range of possible paper topics. (The note is in Norwegian only).

Students must sign an agreement allowing their paper to be published by Concept or be used in other research activities, of course with due reference to the source of origin.  

See also examples of earlier project reports and Master theses written by Concept students (coming soon).
