Join the Buddy Week
The Buddy Week lasts from August 13th to August 24th.
For engineers and researchers, simulation and visualization are increasingly important aspects of working life. High-quality realistic simulations save resources and can save lives. Simulator technology is used in a wide range of training situations, from aircraft emergencies to surgical procedures or controlling the crane on a freight ship.
Methods that we use include game technology to create realistic visualization of simulations. Visualization is also used in scientific contexts to illustrate results.
The programme is open to both international and Norwegian students. The admission requirement is a Bachelor´s degree in engineering or equivalent. There is also a requirement for a major in mathematics from the Bachelor´s degree, equivalent to 30 ECTS. Applicants with 20 credits in mathematics may also apply.
For the 2018-2019 academic year, the admission capacity for this programme of study was 25 places. The grade threshold for admission to the master’s degree programme is normally a C average.
Simulation and visualization are being introduced in more and more areas of society, and the demand for these skills is therefore increasing. Students gain an interdisciplinary education that enables them to work in a wide variety of areas.
Our learning spaces are open to all students around the clock, and are used outside scheduled teaching and training sessions as an academic and social meeting place across disciplines and years of study. This has led to an inclusive social network for students and a good study environment.
The two-year master’s programme in simulation and visualization gives you skills that you can use in the discipline you studied in your bachelor’s programme.
In the fourth semester, you write a final master’s thesis, often in collaboration with local business and industry.
A candidate who has completed his or her qualification should have a learning outcomes defined in terms of knowledge, skills and general competence.
If you have any questions about the programme or other academic questions, you are welcome to contact our student advisers by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
