Become a technological problem solver for social challenges

Are you interested in electronics, acoustics or photonics and would like to turn your own ideas into reality?

On this study programme, you will gain in-demand expertise by learning how to create solutions for sustainable social development.

Electronic system design has already dramatically changed our daily lives. Electronics and photonics plays a crucial part in development of future technologies – from medicine to environmental monitoring. In the future, we expect advanced innovations of connections such as between electronics and nerves so that the deaf can "hear" and the blind can "see". Wireless equipment for patient monitoring provides better control and correct treatment.

The world needs advanced mathematics, demanding physics - and your creative mind!

You will learn how electronic systems can be designed and adapted to the user's needs and preferences.

You will learn a lot of mathematics and physics, and how waves propagate in air, water, space and the human body. You will see opportunities that will benefit society.

You will work on practical projects in interdisciplinary teams from the first semester.

You will aqcuire skills to solve new and complex challenges that technological development brings with it.

Read more about what you will learn

The expertise is sought after, both nationally and internationally. You can work with microchip development, space technology, underwater technology, communication technology and nanotechnology in fields such as medicine, autonomous vehicles, acoustics, and the Internet of Things (IoT). The possibilities are endless!

Typical jobs are developer, researcher, entrepreneur, business manager, consultant, mediator or teacher.

We have a tradition of innovation and business establishment. If you have your own ideas for developing commercial products, you can work on this in your master's project.

The study qualifies for advanced level in the subject area and for admission to doctoral education.

This Master's program is international and is taught in English, but you can submit assignments and receive guidance in Norwegian. Here, you will get fellow students from all over the world, and the opportunity to establish an international network.

You can join the line association Omega, sports teams and a number of other student activities

The teaching consists of lectures, research activities and laboratory work. You will spend a lot of time with your fellow students during the course of the programme.

Read more about student life

The first year of study consists of subjects that will give you the professional basis for your field of study. This part of the study includes the compulsory subject Experts in teams (EiT), which gives you practical experience in interdisciplinary collaboration.

You can choose specialisations in:

  • Acoustics for Communication, Environment and Sensing
  • Analog Circuit Design and Radio Systems
  • Design of Digital and Embedded Systems
  • Nano Electronics and Photonics
  • Signal Processing and Communications
  • Space Systems

The second year of study consists of elective subjects and a master's thesis under the supervision of one of your subject teachers. You may be able to take a semester abroad during the programme.  

Modern research laboratories provide the opportunity to test theoretical solutions in practice.
