Energy Education at UiB

We are proud to annonce our brand new master's programme in energy.The candidates develop technological competence suitable for work in industry as well as government agencies and the university sector. The study programme is based on research and expertise within the energy field from the university as well as external collaborating groups.

The University of Bergen has earned the reputation of being Norway's most international university.

The faculty consists of eight departments who together represent the foundation of our research and education within disciplines such as mathematics, chemistry, physics, computer science, geoscience and life sciences, and with cross-diciplinary emphasis on climate, energy and marine research and education.

Teaching is offered at all levels and in all our research fields:
