PhD Program in Civil and Environmental Engineering

A PhD degree is the highest level of formalized education in Norway. Our goal is to make you an expert in your field.

Our PhDs provides the public sector and industry with the knowledge and competence to ensure the development of a sustainable and competitive construction industry.

At our department you work in established research teams, and in a strong social and scientific environment of approximately 80 PhD candidates.

In addition to a Master's degree or equivalent and a strong academic record, financing is an absolute requirement for admission to a PhD-program.

Funding can be both through NTNU and other sources.

Available PhD-positions at NTNU are continuously posted online.

Please see the doctoral programmes offered by the Faculty of engineering.
