Materials Science and Engineering (Master's Programme)

Study environment

When you begin your master’s program in materials technology, you will attend a small class of approximately 25-30 students. In addition to having a class size that makes it easy to get to know everyone, we have a great social environment. There are many social events to look forward to were you get to know other students. We also have our own breakroom, just for students studying Materials Science and Engineering. Here you can always find someone to have lunch with, or chat with during a break.

Your studies will take place at NTNU Gløshaugen Campus. There is an international environment, and you will meet students from many different countries. In addition to being the largest campus at NTNU, Gløshaugen is located right outside Trondheim city center, next to Studentersamfundet, which hosts large concerts and lots of different events. 

 

Masters students at NTNU have their own student organization, arranging social events through the year and providing help and support. We would like to welcome you to a multicultural and attractive study environment focused on providing a high quality teaching and learning community.

You will find more information about the great student life in Trondheim here.

Close knit student environment and industry collaboration

At the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, which is located at Gløshaugen, reading rooms for students are provided. Your MSc thesis is performed in close collaboration with your supervisor and other researchers/PhD students working on relevant topics. The department also has close contact with the industry, so even collaboration with industry is possible. All experimental research laboratories are well equipped.

Since most of the graduate courses for the Norwegian students are given in English, teaching generally takes place in integrated classes with both Norwegian and International students.
