Energi - sivilingeniørprogrammet

The University of Bergen has earned the reputation of being Norway's most international university. The faculty host two priority areas:

Marine | Climate and energy transition

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:
