Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (HiOA) is Norway’s largest state University College, with approximately 18000 students and 2000 employees. We conduct research in areas that are important for welfare and value creation, for instance health, education, social sciences, technology and design. HiOA has an academic stimulating environment with a variety of welfare schemes.
Our goal is to become a leading university in the Nordics within the field of applied sciences.
The Faculty of Technology, Art and Design (TKD) offers higher education and research and development (R&D) activities within technical subjects, arts and design. The Faculty has approximately 2800 students and 240 staff members and is situated at Pilestredet Campus in downtown Oslo and at Kjeller Campus in Akershus.
The Department of Computer Science offers three bachelor’s degree programmes and a master’s degree programme, in addition to research and development activities. The department has approximately 70 staff members and 800 students.
Within the Computer Science department, we have a research group in mathematical modelling with interests including mathematics, quantum physics, cosmology, biosystems, and information theory. The department includes one professor and two associate professors in mathematics and one professor and two associate professors in physics.
The faculty aims to establish a PhD-program with a branch in mathematical modelling, and a new multi-disciplinary Master’s program. This is in conjunction with HiOA’s full accreditation as a university and the establishment of a research and development collaboration between HiOA and the Simula Research Laboratory.
