About the Department
The research and educational activities at ITK include both fundamental and applied activities in areas such as automatic control and systems theory; estimation and optimization; cyber-physical systems; autonomous unmanned vehicles; robotics; ships and marine systems; process control; smart grids; offshore renewable energy; automated drilling; fisheries and aquaculture; biomedical technology; safety-critical systems; embedded and real-time systems; systems engineering; and instrumentation and measurement systems.
ITK has an international profile with a strong ambition to be a leading international research unit within its field. The research community at ITK was rated "excellent from an international perspective" in the Norwegian Research Council’s evaluation of 53 ICT communities in Norway in 2012, as only one of three ICT communities to receive such a rating in the Norwegian university and college sector. Currently, two of ITK’s professors are IEEE Fellows. The department is involved in numerous research projects and centers, including the Centre of Excellence for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems (NTNU AMOS).
The department has 22 professors, 15 adjunct professors, about 15 postdocs and researchers as well as 70 PhD candidates. Approximately 160 candidates graduate annually from the three MSc programs in cybernetics, which comprise over 700 students in total. Also, about 35 candidates graduate annually from the BSc study in electrical engineering with specialization in automation. We have 17 employees in our technical and administrative staff.
