Do you want to know how devastating a tsunami can be along the coast? Are you interested in the safety of ships and oil platforms in stormy or arctic environments? Do you want to work on industrial flow problems such as simultaneous transport of oil and natural gas in the same pipeline? Or do you want to know how biomechanics is used to understand the mechanisms responsible for heart failure, stroke or Alzheimer’s disease? Then Mechanics is the master’s programme for you.
About the programme
The master’s programme in Mechanics gives you practical experience with scientific method and thinking, and teaches you to develop tools based on mathematics, informatics and mechanics. You use these tools to solve important problems of the type mentioned above. The master’s programme in Mechanics deals with both fluid and solid mechanics with a common base of continuum mechanics.
Required specialization and minimum grade requirement
You must have a minimum grade average comparable to a Norwegian C in the required specialization. A Norwegian C is described as a good grade, generally comparable to an American B and a Second Class Upper in the British system. We do not use conversion tables for foreign grades. All foreign education is individually evaluated during the admission process.
Please note that eligible applicants who fulfill the minimum grade requirement will compete for a study place. Please see the section on ranking for more information on selection criteria.
The required specialization consists of 80 ECTS credits where the following, or equivalent, courses are included:
- MAT1100 – Calculus
- MAT1110 – Calculus and linear algebra
- MAT1120 – Linear algebra
- MEK1100 – Vector Calculus
- IN1000 – Introduction to Object-oriented Programming(previously INF1000) / IN1900 – Introduction to Programming with Scientific Applications (previously INF1100)
- two of the following courses:
- one of the following courses:
- MAT-INF1100 – Modelling and computations
- 10 credits other scientific courses at 2000- or 3000-level.
Note: Background as Mechanical Engineer will often not qualify for admission into this master’s programme. Make sure your background includes at least 35 ECTS mathematics, 15 ECTS fluid/continuum mechanics, and 10 ECTS object orientet programming.
