2 Norway: Population 4,7 million Trondheim: inhabitants, at 63º N 7º EThe Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU): The second largest university in Norway, with students and a staff providing 4300 man-yearsNorway is part of the Scandinavian peninsula on the northern outskirts of Europe.About two-thirds of Norway is mountainous, and its indented coastline of some miles is dotted with at least islands.Modern transport makes far away close at handThe airport has dozens of flights to/from Oslo every day, as well as direct connections with all Norwegian cities. International direct connections to Copenhagen, Amsterdam and London (Stanstead) on scheduled flights. There are frequent train connections with Oslo and the north. The coastal express liner service has daily departures for Bergen to the south and North Cape in the far north.Gulf Stream climateTrondheim has a milder climate in winter than could be expected because of its latitude as it is at the receiving end of the Gulf Stream. Visitors can expect two to three months of snow in winter, but few really cold spells. In the summer, expect temperate changeable conditions and a few periods of warm weather.

The term “primary applicants” only applies to those applicants coordinated through UCAS. The number does not include those applying directly to NTNU for a higher degree, for the cand.psychol. degree in psychology, applicants for the spring semester and applicants to The Trondheim Academy of Fine Art and performance studies in music (as a result of required entrance exams for admission).The difference of approximately 3,000 between those accepted and the number of graduates is explained thusly: Those who graduate have completed a course of study here, for example in technology (MSc). Among those accepted, many will not complete a course of study for a lower/higher degree at NTNU. Some do not show up despite accepting a place at the university, some leave after a few weeks/months, some are accepted into studies of a shorter duration on the basis of main studies at another university, and some only follow individual courses as part of their continuing education.The admissions process may be divided into five stages: 1) Submitted applications; 2) Qualified applicants; 3) Study offers; 4) Acceptance of the study offer; 5) Arriving at the university and paying the semester fee. (Numbers for categories 1) and 5) are found in DBH.)The number of registered students is taken from ”Studentrapport/Registrerte studenter (Totalt/studenter)” for NTNU in ”Database for høgere utdanning” (DBH – dbh.nsd.uib.no) for 2010.The number of degrees awarded is from the relevant tables in dbh.nsd.uib.no, as is the number of PhDs awarded from NTNU.The number of employees ”Tilsatterapporter/Tilsatte” i Database for høgere utdanning (DBH – dbh.nsd.uib.no) for 2009 (Institusjon-stillingsgruppe-stillingskategori-stillingskode = Undervisnings-, forsknings- og formidlingsstilling).

17 NTNU’s six strategic areas R & DNTNU’s six strategic areasEnergy and Petroleum – Resources and EnvironmentMedical TechnologyMaterials TechnologyMarine and Maritime TechnologyInformation and Communication TechnologyGlobalizationBudget:Seed funding (EUR 0.5–1.5 million per area)Funding for PhD candidatesEnergy and the environment – because energy technology must reflect the limitations of the environment. Research is being intensified in smart and energy-efficient buildings and environmentally friendly uses of natural gas.Medical technology – because health is one of our greatest challenges. The main focus is on image-based diagnostics and ultrasound intervention, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and medical biotechnology.Materials technology – because materials are the basis for all new technology. Focus areas are light metal alloys and functional materials.Marine and maritime technology – because the ocean holds vast amounts of underused resources. Intense focus on marine technology and marine biology resources.Information and Communications Technology – because humans need to communicate. Research is carried out on four levels:Discipline-specific. Interdisciplinary research in fields such as speech technology, with research teams from telecommunications, computer science and linguistics. Integrated areas with a broad academic base, such as human-machine communication. Integrated projects that draw on resources from a large part of the ICT community.Globalization – because the forces of globalization permeate our society and are significant for all areas of society; no area remains unaffected. It touches everyday life on all levels, from the individual to the state, up to and including the multinational. Globalization means that cultural and social boundaries at all levels become less significant in governing human interactions. As a result, globalization research is highly relevant and significant for both the public and private sectors. Globalization affects most scientific disciplines in fundamental ways. The area includes three overarching interdisciplinary themes; Historical Processes, Ethical Dilemmas, and Economic Conditions.Photos, from top:1) GEMINI Vol 1, 2003: Fuel cell developed at SINTEF Materials and Chemistry.

38 Education – 2010 10 587 primary student applicants 6 726 new students admittedregistered students2 780 degrees awarded260 doctoral degrees awarded150 programmes of study40 international master’s programmes3 000 coursesThe number of applications is much higher than the number of applicants, because a single applicant may apply to several study programmes at the same time. (See also Database for Higher Education (DBH), at The total number of applications is the sum of the applications filed with the Universities and Colleges Admission Service (UCAS), which number approximately 40,000, and the applications that for various reasons (see below) come directly to NTNU.The number of primary applicants (applicants that have NTNU listed as their first choice) is taken from NUCAS ( and from the NTNU annual press release in April/May. The term “primary applicants” only applies to those applicants coordinated through UCAS. The number does not include those applying directly to NTNU for a higher degree, for the cand.psychol. degree in psychology, applicants for the spring semester and applicants to The Trondheim Academy of Fine Art and performance studies in music (as a result of required entrance exams for admission).Approximately 6,300 were accepted (see above mentioned Table 1). The difference of approximately 3,000 between those accepted and the number of graduates is explained thusly: Those who graduate have completed a course of study here, for example in technology (MSc). Among those accepted, many will not complete a course of study for a lower/higher degree at NTNU. Some do not show up despite accepting a place at the university, some leave after a few weeks/months, some are accepted into studies of a shorter duration on the basis of main studies at another university, and some only follow individual courses as part of their continuing education.The admissions process may be divided into five stages: 1) Submitted applications; 2) Qualified applicants; 3) Study offers; 4) Acceptance of the study offer; 5) Arriving at the university and paying the semester fee. (Numbers for categories 1) and 5) are found in DBH.)The number of registered students is taken from ”Studentrapport/Registrerte studenter (Totalt/studenter)” in dbh.nsd.uib.noThe number of degrees awarded is from NTNU-Table 1 in the annual report ( ) to the Ministry of Education and Research, and the number of PhDs awarded from dbh.nsd.uib.no.The number of programmes of study is taken from The list of international Master’s programmes fromThe number of courses is calculated from the list inPhoto: Cathrine Dillner Hagen/NTNU Info.

All areas are approved by the Ministry of Education and Research: Mathematics and scientific studies (science), arts (humanities), social sciences, technology, medicine, architecture, psychology, performing music, fine art, and practical-pedagogical studies. (The Examen philosophicum is in addition to this.)The hierarchical terminology is 1) Area of study, 2) Programme of study (both for lower and higher degrees, and for doctoral studies), and 3) Course (which is the basic unit that awards credits).Photo: Cathrine Dillner Hagen/NTNU Info.For more on terminology, see (“termbase”)See also (”UHR´s Termbase - translations of educational terms”)
40 Degree structure (years of study) EDUCATIONDegree structure (years of study)Humanities Fine Art Science Social SciencesMedicine Clinical PsychologyTechnology ArchitectureMusicTeacher educationIn NTNU’s degree structure, students can choose between two pathways:3+2: Students taking the arts, social sciences and natural sciences can chose different programmes of study that can be combined in a bachelor’s degree (BA, BSc) – 3 years. This can be combined with a subsequent 2-year master’s degree (MA, MSc., MPhil.)Integrated degree: The other path is an integrated degree such as a Master of Science (Norwegian: Mastergrad i teknologi (previously sivilingeniør and/or sivilarkitekt)). This takes 5 years to complete. Or a professional degree in medicine or psychology (these degrees are both 6 year programmes).A doctoral degree (at NTNU, usually a PhD) builds on a master’s degree, and normally takes 3 years.The doctoral programmes are structured like the master’s programmes.It is also possible to choose a two-year master’s degree building on three years of technological or architectural studies.There is a separate medical research programme. This education is centred around medical studies.One can also choose the practical-pedagogical teacher education as a one-year addition to:- A five-year master’s degree- A three-year bachelor’s degree- 180 creditsTeacher education may also be taken as a two-year addition to general education and vocational training (part-time). NTNU is the second largest institution in Norway for teacher education.(Graphics from

In addition to residents, about 23,000 students live in the city, but formally reside in their respective home counties. To estimate the actual population for Trondheim, we must also subtract about 2,000 students whose registered address is Trondheim, but who live and study elsewhere. The actual resident population can thus be estimated at approximately 180,000. There are no exact numbers for the residences of the student population, so the estimates are approximate.
