Department of

Energy and Process Engineering

The Department of Energy and Process Engineering at NTNU, is an international driving force within education and research on the total energy chain from resource to customer. We work on how to produce energy which can be used by man and machine in a sustainable way, taking into consideration health, climate changes and available resources. 

The Department has five specialist groups:
