Nordic Five Tech

Nordic Five Tech is a strategic alliance of the five leading technical universities in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The alliance was established in November 2006 with the goal of utilizing the shared and complementary strengths and creating synergies within education, research and innovation.


The Nordic Five Tech alliance aims to:

  • become the Nordic check point for Nordic and international master's students in engineering
  • increase the mobility of staff and students within N5T
  • improve the competitive edge and acknowledgement for high quality in education, research and innovation
  • take advantage of the “N5T extended campus” in terms of activities, infrastructure and competence available within the alliance


Nordic Five Tech is governed by the Nordic Five Tech Committee. The chairmanship of the alliance alternates annually between the universities and the secretariat is virtual but joint through contact persons at each university.
