Georgia and Norway – two hydropower countries

About 80 percent of Georgia’s electricity demand is covered by local hydropower plants. The construction of hydro power plants in Georgia has a long tradition, which has been reactivated in recent years. Both large power plants with reservoirs and small hydropower plants are under construction or being planned.

Norway has a long tradition in developing hydropower. Hydropower is the mainstay of the Norwegian electricity system. Norway has 1660 hydropower plants, which accounts for 31 837 or 96 % of total installed capacity. Norway and NTNU has developed competence at the highest international level within environmentally friendly development and operation of hydropower plants. 

 

International master’s degree programme in Hydropower Development

NTNU’s International master's degrees are programmes taught entirely in English. The master’s degree programme in hydropower extends over two academic years (4 semesters) and constitutes a course load of 120 ECTS credits. The programme is open to both international and Norwegian students.

The programme in hydropower development is run by The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Students and researchers graduating from the department’s programs provide both the public and private sectors with expertise and skills in the areas of civil and transportation engineering, structural engineering, water and wastewater engineering, and hydraulic engineering.
