Higher Education within N5T
The academic standards at the N5T are very high and can be compared with that of other top international technical universities. All teachers and lecturers are active researchers – an important fact that ensures a real researched based education all the way through bachelor to doctoral studies.
Teaching has focus on thinking and learning. Training of the critical and analytical skills of the student is an important educational element at N5T. This is also reflected by the means of which students are assessed and evaluated, with combinations of written reports, oral presentations and conventional written exams.
Apart from lectures, project work in small groups is an important part of the learning process. Participation, therefore, is the keyword for making the most out of the Nordic higher education system. Students learn to collaborate, communicate, make decisions and take responsibility.
All engineering programs at N5T ensure the student a solid scientific and technological knowledge base. At the same time, they offer a great deal of flexibility in terms of curriculum. This gives the student the opportunity to design and organize a programme that fits with his or her preferences, thereby developing the innovative and creative competences so much in demand by the present labor market.
