Five or eight faculties most relevant for new @NTNU 

I cut and paste from NTNU/fusjon

Narrow or broad structure

At this stage, the two models look like this:

Model 1: Narrow faculty structure

  • Engineering and architecture
  • Mathematics, science and ICT
  • Medicine and health
  • Humanities and art
  • Social sciences

Model 2: Broad faculty structure

  • Engineering and architecture
  • Natural sciences
  • Informatics, computer science and mathematics
  • Medicine
  • Health and social care
  • Economics and management
  • Humanities and art
  • Social sciences and educational science

The responses showed that:

  • A clear majority wants a model based on NTNU’s current structure with seven faculties, or broader variant with ten faculties, or a hybrid of these two.
  • A minority wants a model based on a narrow structure, with four faculties, possibly in a modified form.
  • All the groups that have provided feedback reject the concept of a campus-based faculty structure. One result of a campus model would be that the current university colleges in Ålesund and Gjøvik continue as faculties.

The group, which is headed by NTNU’s Pro-Rector for Education, Berit Kjeldstad, went through the feedback at a meeting on 18 September. Here, they decided to continue their work with an assessment of two main models in the range between a narrow and a broad faculty structure. They also decided to explore how existing units and academic environments at the four merger partners could be accommodated in these two models.
