The history of The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) goes back to 1910 when The Norwegian Institute of Technology (NTH) was established as the country's center for technology education. The Institute was followed in 1922 by The Norwegian Teacher Training College (NLHT) which was later renamed Norwegian College of General Sciences (AVH). NTNU was founded in 1996 as a merger between NTH, AVH, the Museum of Natural History and Archaeology (VM), The Faculty of Medicine (MF), Trondheim Academy of Fine Art and Trondheim Conservatory of Music (MiT). In 2016 NTNU merged with The University College in Sør-Trøndelag, The University College in Gjøvik and The University College in Ålesund.
