Department of:

Production and Quality Engineering

The Department of Production and Quality Engineering (IPK) works on the point of intersection between technology and management, with issues tied to operations, industrialization and production, along with quality and safety.

The department has four research groups:

  • Production Systems
  • Production Management
  • Project and Quality Management
  • Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS).

We teach three international two-year Master's Degree programs in english:

In addition, we offer courses and specializations in several other two- and five-year Master's Degree programs in Norwegian, such as the five-year program in Mechanical Engineering.

Using our wide international network we were able to engage in student exchange with many foreign universities and research institutions, for both longer and shorter periods.

Our collaborative research partnership with SINTEF's Technology and Society unit fosters many opportunities for our students in terms of projects and masters theses.
