Being a student in Trondheim
Trondheim is known for its good student and study environment and has been elected Norway’s best student city several times. The number of inhabitants in Trondheim exceeds 200,000 and its 33,000 students clearly leave their mark on the city. Studentersamfundet (the students’ association) functions as a base for many students. Whatever you like to do in your leisure, you will no doubt find something to participate in.
As a master’s degree student in Trondheim, you will have close interaction with staff and researchers and be part of an excellent international and multi-cultural research environment. The Master's programme will have a mixture of Norwegian and non-Norwegian students. In Norway English is a compulsory part of Norwegian schooling, which means that practically every Norwegian has a reasonable knowledge of English. 18 students are admitted to the programme of study in Trondheim.
Together with SINTEF Energy Research the department is well equipped and has several modern laboratories for work in high voltage, high current and electrical heating, power electronics and electrical machines as well as materials and lighting laboratories.
Students in the international programme will also meet in classes with Norwegian students following the five year Master Programme in Energy and Environmental Engineering with specialisation towards Electric Power Engineering.
