About the Faculty

Advances in modern society are to a large extent based on research and higher education in science and technology. As part of the strategic development plans for the University of the Faroe Islands, the Faculty of Science and Technology aims to promote the development of specific fields in geophysics, information technology and biology. This is why the Faculty launched its new bachelor’s degree programmes in 2008 and 2010, and brought in new scientists in order to advance the prioritized branches of science.

PhD projects are an important part of the plan, as they help young researchers hone their research skills. So far, resources have been allocated to one PhD project from the University’s government funding. Furthermore, oil companies licenced to prospect in Faroese territory have, to date, financed five PhD projects and one postdoctoral position at the Faculty of Science and Technology. 

The Faculty of Science and Technology is located at Nóatún 3 in west Tórshavn. The Faroe Marine Research Institute, the Centre of Maritime Studies and Engineering and the School of Education are our closest neighbours. By car you can access Nóatún from J.C Svabos gøta along Hornagøta, by foot, on a path from V.U. Hammershaimbsgøtu.
