NTNU - Metal Production
At NTNU, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, we create knowledge for a better world and solutions that can change everyday life. From 2016, NTNU, the University College in Gjøvik, the University College in Sør-Trøndelag and the University College in Ålesund are merged to become one university. This gives us a more comprehensive range of study programs and larger research communities. Through interdisciplinary cooperation, NTNU’s strategic research areas address complex challenges of great importance for society. Our aim is to meet global challenges with an interdisciplinary and flexible organization, to strengthen cooperation with the world of work and business as well as our innovative capability, and to increase our share of international research funding.
NTNU, Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology through the Department of Materials Science and Engineering hosts the SFI Metal Production. Internationally, NTNU is acknowledged as the top education facility for candidates studying ferroalloy/silicon and aluminium production. SFI Metal Production has given us the opportunity to continue this research and innovation training within this highly competent centre for Metal Production together with SINTEF, Teknova and the ten industrial partners.
Our scientific personnel are involved in all the five research domains with a special focus on research, education and supervising of the PhD students and the Post Docs.
