The Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology conducts research and education in the natural sciences, environmental science, biotechnology, chemistry, physics, materials, and chemical engineering.

We offer integrated MSc degrees in physics and mathematics, chemistry, biotechnology, materials technology and nanotechnology, as well as 3-year BSc and 2-year MSc degree programmes in chemistry, physics, biology and biotechnology. Six of our MSc programmes are international, taught in English. We also have PhD programmes in all our disciplines.

The faculty's research is of a high international caliber, with topics that reflect NTNU's own priority areas, such as Materials and Energy & Petroleum - Resources & Environment. Other research efforts include cooperative projects with domestic or international research institutes and industry, the public sector and SINTEF, or as a part of the European Union's framework programmes. The faculty's newest research areas are systems biology and nanotechnology.
