Energi - sivilingeniørprogrammet

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

Marine | Climate and energy transition

The faculty hosts the secretariat of the Norwegian marine university consortium

The faculty consists of seven 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:
