The Department of Manufacturing and Civil engineering has a good cooperation with regional and national industrial clusters and business. The spearhead here is the Raufoss cluster (NCE Raufoss) and Sintef Raufoss Manufacturing (SRM). Cooperation with NTNU, SRM and about 15 companies at Raufoss under the auspices of the Center for Research-based Innovation "SFI Manufacturing", is a central and prioritized activity in the department.
