Education and research

The faculty offers study programmes within science and technology fields. We offer doctoral and graduate-level programmes as well as undergraduate and master's level programmes.

Some of the research conducted at the Faculty of Science and Technology is at the very forefront of scientific achievement in its respective areas. Research conducted at the faculty are on the following themes (2021-2030):  

  • Energy   
  • Ocean technology  
  • Health and technology
  • Digital technology   
  • Safety
  • In addition comes the emphasized goal on excellent research

Focus areas

The focus areas are strategically chosen to follow up changes in society and the need for new knowledge within our core areas: science and technology. They represent areas in society where the need for new skills and new technology are great. Within the thematic initiatives, the faculty has both academic weight and prerequisites for challenging the familiar and exploring the unknown.


This covers renewable energy, with a particular focus on ocean energy and geo-energy, carbon capture and storage, efficient energy systems, hydrogen, and battery technology and safe, efficient and environmentally friendly oil and gas extraction. 

Ocean technology

This covers technology for the design and operation of marine structures for green energy extraction, aquaculture for sustainable food production, subsea mining and environmentally friendly and efficient transport.

Health and technology

This covers medical technology, biotechnology, biomedicine and medical statistics for safer and better diagnostics and treatment.

Digital technology

This covers artificial intelligence and robotic technology, data analytics, data security, network technology and blockchain technology.


Includes studies, theories and methods within risk management and community safety that contribute to the planning and construction of safe, sustainable cities and communities.

One goal for the thematic focus areas is to build up and develop more professional groups with high internationally recognized quality. More collaboration across disciplines, departments and with other faculties is important to succeed.
