The Department of Energy and Process Engineering has a total of 260 employees, including approx. 105 doctoral students (PhD). We have an extensive contact network, and graduates from our master's programmes are employed by both industry and public administration. Our research is applied to both offshore and onshore industry, by consulting companies, energy advisory services, engineering companies, and public administration.

At the department we work with systems based on natural gas as well as renewable energy. Pollution problems both in relation to the external environment and the indoor environment in buildings is a key part of our activities. We work with industrial process engineering in the broadest sense, with processing Norwegian raw materials for high-quality and competitive products.

An innovation resource

Our business concept is to develop and communicate knowledge, thus contributing to the improvement of, and adding value to, society. Our goal is to be a premise provider to public officials and an innovation resource for Norwegian industry in our scientific fields. By ensuring that both Norwegian industry and the public sector has access to our experts and competencies, we can contribute to solving many of the important issues that face our society today.
