The University of Bergen has trained many employees in leading positions in oil companies and research organizations, not only in Norway. The Porous Media Group at the Department of Mathematics was founded early in the 1980s, and the collaboration with industry has borne fruits. Many who studied applied mathematics work today as reservoir engineers for these companies.
