The Department of Marine Technology (IMT) is a world leader in education, research, and innovation for engineering systems in the marine environment. The oceans are a key resource for addressing numerous international challenges: transportation, energy, and food production for the growing global population. We work with methods and techniques which facilitate the assessment, development, and sustainable operation of Norway's biggest export industries – oil and gas extraction at sea, ship technology with corresponding equipment industry, fisheries technology and aquaculture technology– as well as newer developments including offshore renewable energy (wind, wave, and current), coastal infrastructure such as floating bridges, and marine robotics for mapping and monitoring the ocean environment, including polar regions.
