NTNU Alumni Spain

NTNU Alumni Spain

A network for all our former students living in Spain.

It is a social and academic meeting place – a shared arena where you can become involved as an NTNU person.

The ambition is to have a large and active network where a strong NTNU identity means that members are good ambassadors and partners for their alma mater. Members should be a resource for NTNU and for each other. The network aims to link NTNU with business and society in Spain to enhance cooperation and contribute to developing more knowledge for a better world.

NTNU Alumni Spain organizes a variety of social and professional activities. It is an outstanding arena for keeping in touch with NTNU. You will get many opportunities for updates in your field as well as networking and teamwork.

Sign up and get involved together with your NTNU Alumni fellows!
