ClevAir

Real estate consumes 40% of global energy and there is an urgent need to cut consumption and CO2 emissions from the built world. ClevAir is a plug-and-play building management solution that helps save 30% energy, and quality assure the indoor climate. It uses modern sensors and algorithms to reprogram the HVAC in real-time, based on changes in building occupancy and/or outdoor climate etc.

Veni

Veni has created a groundbreaking concept that helps to handle complex geometrical and informational interfaces in design and construction of industrial projects. Facilities where manufacturing or processing of food/beverages, batteries, pharmaceuticals, metals etc. has started using our concept to save money and time, while increasing quality. Per now, some of the steps in this concept are manually done, in modifying geometry in 3D-files. We’ve automated a lot, but there’s still room for much more. We want to explore how e.g. machine learning can help further optimize this concept.

Proptly

We need your help to explore: How can we utilise data and AI – such as Dall-E 2 – to drive value in homebuilding, being more customer-centric and cost-friendly? Moreover, what is the potential in using AI to help construction services reduce the materials required and thereby have a more sustainable approach?

Fields of study:

  • Data science
  • Computational engineering

Solintegra

As a national provider of building integrated solar solutions for private homes and commercial market, we see that the Norwegian regulations and standards are not able to keep up with the innovative products coming into the market. Our business model allows the building industry to take new solutions and make them into standard roof and façade solutions. We therefore have a responsibility to be advisors on installation techniques and always according to Norwegian law and regulations. We would like to contribute to safe and good installations methodologies and would like to challenge students to look at products vs regulations and how can this be done in a smarter, safer and quicker fashion.

Fields of study:

  • Engineering
  • Risk analysis

Lyse Neo

Waste Heat is present everywhere from waste incineration plants to industry and data centres. However, it is not always compliance between the temperature level, location nor the time of excess heat and energy demand. Thermal energy storage in district heating systems can increase waste heat utilization, and decarbonise and reduce other environmental impacts of the energy system.

Fields of study:

  • Engineering
  • Energy and geoscience

Innocode + Ducky

How we can reduce emissions and increase the quality of life – at the same time. Our focus is on reducing consumption-based emissions. We have the knowledge and technology available, but we are moving too slow. How can we change behavior, use technology and communication to achieve our common goals. How can sustainability be simplified, so that we can move in the same direction. And how should the municipality tackle this challenge?

Fields of study:

  • Energy, environment and society
  • Change management

BI Builders

Thesis revolves around The Aqua Culture industry. Strong advances in the use of technology is observed. With these technologies and the ambient environment where they are applied comes a new set of workflows that will bring enormous amounts of data that calls for digitalization at all levels. What might constitute good empirical information, effective methods, and relevant applications of technology – all within an ESG frame.

Fields of study:

  • Engineering

Reveel

Reveel develops technology and processes to streamline information flow, and improve transparency and verification in value/supply chains. We need to look into:

  1. the effects the Openness Act (Åpenhetsloven) will have in practical terms on safeguarding human rights in the production of goods and services.
  2. How can one, through the use of technology and new processes, ensure better identification of unwanted incidents through improved information flow and risk analysis?
  3. How to increase motivation for involvement in your own value chain, where the result is improved security and flow of information.

Fields of study:

Unlisted

We want to map trends and effects of employee’s co-ownership in companies. There is an increasing trend for this, and it becomes more and more important in order to reduce inequalities. There are different forms for co-ownership arrangements and there are new regulations addressing this. It is interesting to look closer into the effects of this and co-ownership for both the companies and the employees.

IKM Subsea Motor Solutions

Reliable submersible electrical machines are vital for the ongoing electrification in the North Sea, and for the development of new sources of marine energy. How can we develop virtual prototypes of these machines for Multiphysics simulations before they are built? And how can we empirically test them in a representative and efficient manner before they are deployed in the field?

Fields of study:

  • Offshore technology
  • Mechanical engineering
