Department of Energy and Process Engineering

Fluid Mechanics

Our research group focuses on both fundamental and applied research in fluid mechanics, and are organised into two research laboratories. The Fluid Mechanics Laboratory focuses on turbulent flows and hydrodynamics, and the Waterpower Laboratory hosts the Norwegian Research Centre for Hydropower Technology (HydroCen).

As a master or doctor degree student in our group, you become member of an international group with contacts all over the world, and can choose to specialize in several directions.

The Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology offer a PhD in Energy and Process Engineering where you can write a doctoral thesis connected to research and development carried out in our research group. The following large 5-year master degree programmes have courses and projects related to our areas of research: Energy and Environmental Engineering and Mechanical Engineering
