Student guide towards Mechanical Engineering

Student guide towards Mechanical Engineering

Two of M.Sc programmes at NTNU are suitable for this discipline, Energy and Environmental Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

The Energy and Environmental Engineering program has three specialisation paths. One of these, Energy and Process Engineering allows the student to gain knowledge about all fluidmechanical aspects of a hydropower system. This includes components like fluid conduits, valves, surge chambers as well as the turbine itself.

Energy and Environment is the most relevant MSc program at NTNU toward this field. Within this program you can select multiple programs. Electrical power engineering and smart grids provide expertise in the electrical part of a hydropower plant. This involves the conversion of mechanical energy from the turbine to the electric power using a generator, and the transfer to the consumer via electrical infrastructure.
