Bachelor Engineering

Undergraduate programmes in chemistry and materials engineering

Our group is in charge of the three-year bachelor's degree programmes- chemical engineering and materials engineering, as well as the one-year programme in biotechnology and chemistry. Our focus point is teaching, and as such we take an active part in developing IMA's teaching competence. We are always interested in testing innovative ways of teaching, learning and assessment, in particular student-active learning and use of digital tools

The INPUT group is located in the Akrinn building, at the Kalvskinnet campus in Trondheim. Our offices are on the third floor, adjacent to the chemistry student-laboratories on the second and third floors. We also have a well-equipped materials testing laboratory in the basement.

Please contact group leader, Assoc. Prof. Eirik Sundby for general enquiries to the group, or feel free to e-mail any one of us directly.
