Research and education at master's and PhD levels are to help develop new methods and the technology for effective, environmetally friendly energy systems.

The Department has 12 professors, who are specialists in all fields of electric power engineering. We have extensive computer and laboratory resources. In addition there is a close collaboration with the research institute SINTEF Energy Research, located on the university campus. The two partners collaborate within the framework of a Gemini Centre, which allows the master's students to take part in research activities and to have access to advanced laboratories and experienced researchers. The Department also collaborates with other Norwegian industry and international partners and holds a leading position in the power engineering sector among European universities.

NTNU programmes

Electric Power Engineering is important to industrialized as well as developing countries. Our Master's Programme aims to provide candidates with knowledge and skills for planning, design and operation of Electric Power Systems.

The study provides specialization within three areas:

  • Power system analysis
  • High voltage technology
  • Electric energy conversion
