  • How we work

    Our research emphasizes economics, innovation, digitization and IT. In addition, there are several exciting research projects in applied informatics, information systems and human-computer interaction. Our lecturers have extensive experience both within industry and academia. Relevant working life experience is brought into the teaching through lecturing and guest lecturing. This will make you used to working life challenges and will ease the transition between study life and work life.

    Moreover, we collaborate with Gründergarasjen (Oslo’s incubator for technology-intensive early-stage startups) and Loftet Studentinkubator (Kristiania’s own incubator for students who have a business idea or a startup).

  • Campus Life

    Kristiania is a place for everyone, whilst being a place where you will study along with others who share your passions. An education from Kristiania is practice-oriented, which makes our students sought-after in the labour market, even before they have finished their education. The students' own line associations make for opportunities to meet and bond on the basis of shared interests, while the incubators like Loftet and Bryggeriet creates a bustling and inspiring environment for the students' own companies.

Since my years as a game developer, I have worked towards making software exciting and elegant to use. Particularly, response time is crucial to me. I bring this experience with me into new and exciting studies.
