TUC has fully implemented the new European standards of degrees and grading system (3 year Bachelor's degrees of 180 ECTS credits, followed by 2 year Master's degrees of 120 ECTS credits). The Faculty of Technology in Porsgrunn offers 3 master's programmes in Engineering taught in English and open to international students, as well as a PhD programme. The R&D activities at TUC are extensive and of high standards in several areas. Many of our research groups have successfully competed with other Norwegian universities and colleges in receiving grants and support from private and public external R&D sources, especially from the Norwegian Research Council. The main strategic field of research within the area of Engineering/Tehcnology at TUC is defined as Gas and Energy Systems, and our three international M.Sc.programmes all emphasize key components within this field of research. These M.Sc.programmes are industrially oriented, with emphasis on applied science and close cooperation with local and regional industrial companies.
