About the programme

The Fluid Mechanics programme of the University of Oslo 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 Fluid Mechanics deals with both fluid and solid mechanics with a common base of continuum mechanics.

The master's programme has two programme options:

  • Fluid Mechanics: Energy, environment and safety
  • Fluid Mechanics: Biomechanics and medical mechanics

Further studies and work

After the study you will be well prepared for working in several fields both within the private and public sectors. Many of our master's theses are directly related to the problems and activities of technological companies and institutions in Norway. Mechanics can be a bridge between mathematics and physics and can be a suitable specialization for those who want to be science teachers in school. Some of the master's students who obtain very good results choose to continue on a research carrier by taking a doctoral degree (PhD) at the University of Oslo or a university abroad.
