The Norwegian University of Science and Technology, or Norges teknisk-naturvitenskaplige universitet (NTNU), is a distinguished public research university located in the city of Trondheim, Trondelag County, Norway. Founded in 1996, it is the largest university in Norway. It focuses mainly on sciences and technology. Besides being the best in the country, the university is perennially ranked in the top one percent of the world’s leading universities.
The university traces its roots back to 1760 when some of its founding institutions were formed. It was, however, established in its current form through the amalgamation of the University of Trondheim and six other universities in the region in 1996. Through an initiative by the Norwegian government to reduce the number of higher education institutes in 2015, NTNU merged with various university colleges including Ålesund, Sør-Trøndelag, and Gjøvik. The merger, which became official in 2016, resulted in the formation of Norway’s largest university.
At present, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology has campuses in three locations: Trondheim, Ålesund, and Gjøvik. Besides the main campus in Trondheim, there are 10 other campuses across the city. These locations include research centers such as SeaLab (Brattøra), VOP (Østmarka), Ringve Botanical Garden, Trondheim Biological Station, Kongsvoll Biological Station, and Center for Elite Sports Research.
Moreover, the university is organized into nine faculties that are further divided into 55 departments. The faculties enable NTNU to disseminate knowledge in its area of focus (natural sciences and technology). The institution is also renowned for its professional degree programs in teacher education, medicine, fine arts, music, and architecture. Other notable fields of study include engineering, social sciences, health sciences, humanities, and educational sciences. In total, NTNU offers 371 study programs including bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees.
It accommodates an average of 41,000 students annually, of which approximately 50% enrolled in natural sciences and technical programs. Also, 9% of the student body is made up of international students drawn from more than 119 countries in the world. Students have dozens of opportunities to study abroad through NTNU’s excellent exchange programs and over 300 cooperative agreements with more than 60 universities in the world.
Meanwhile, there are more than 7,600 full-time equivalent employees, of which two-thirds work in research, teaching, and academic positions. In terms of its alumni body, over the years the university has produced more than 38,000 graduates who work in organizations worldwide. Two of its former students, Ivar Giæver and Lars Onsager, are Nobel Prize winners in Physics and Chemistry, respectively.
The university endeavors to provide everything that students need to excel in their field of study. There are numerous large and small laboratories as well as world-class research centers. In addition, the university library has 16 departments that offer more than 2 million printed books, about 1 million ebooks, and 275 databases.
D-index (Discipline H-index) only includes papers and citation values for an examined discipline in
contrast to General H-index which accounts for publications across all disciplines.
