Admission

PhD candidates from the University of Oslo should apply for classes and register for examinations through Studentweb.

If a course has limited intake capacity, priority will be given to PhD candidates who follow an individual education plan where this particular course is included. Some national researchers’ schools may have specific rules for ranking applicants for courses with limited intake capacity.

PhD candidates who have been admitted to another higher education institution must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.

Prerequisites

Formal prerequisite knowledge

None.

Recommended previous knowledge

MEK3230 - Fluid Mechanics, MEK3220 - Continuum Mechanics (discontinued)/MEK4220 - Continuum Mechanics (discontinued), MAT-INF3360 - Introduction to Partial Differential Equations. Some knowledge in complex functional theory will be an advantage.

Overlapping courses

10 credits overlap with MEK4420 - Marine Hydrodynamics

9 credits with ME312.

*The information about overlaps is not complete. Contact the department for more information if necessary.

Teaching

3 hours of lectures per week.

Examination

Three compulsory assignments have to be handed in and approved. Final written or oral examination depending on number of students.

Doctoral candidates must deliver one extra obligatory exercise, which must be at an advanced level within the curriculum of the course, or be a theoretical extension of the curriculum of the course, and should preferrably relate the contents of the course to newer research literature. It may be required to give an oral presentation and/or deliver a written report. The exercise must be passed to be allowed to take the final exam.

Examination support material

Permitted aids at the exam if written: Rottmann's formula list + approved calculator.

Language of examination

Subjects taught in English will only offer the exam paper in English.

You may write your examination paper in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish or English.

Grading scale

Grades are awarded on a pass/fail scale. Read more about the grading system.
