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 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:

Marine research

Bergen in front as part of Norway's international leadership role in ocean management

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg has established an international high-level panel for a sustainable ocean economy. The University of Bergen looks forward to being part of this marine effort and contribute with scientific advice.

Marine Research Cooperation

Speaking with one voice from Norway

In their very first meeting, the board of The Norwegian Marine University Consortium (NMUC) had talks with the executives from the European Marine Board.  The next step is to shape the consortium into a vital bridgehead for cooperation with the EU.

Horizon lecture

Magnetized plasma - the most powerful explosions in space

Magnetized plasma in outer space carries huge amounts of energy that occasionally gets released, typically in the form of magnetically driven explosions. Dr. James L. Burch and Dr. Michael Hesse tells you more about the phenomena in their Horizon lecture.

Marine reseach

A new view of evolution

New discoveries from the University of Bergen can knock a hundred years old hypothesis on the evolution of the nervous system off its perch. The results are published in Nature.

Marine Supercluster

Canada draws inspiration from Bergen supercluster

When Halifax, Canada aims to establish its own marine supercluster, it is Bergen they look to for inspiration.

Doctoral education

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences offers doctoral education within the following disciplines: biology, chemistry, earth science, physics and technology, informatics, mathematics, molecular biology and geophysics. We also offer doctoral training in collaboration with several partner institutions.
