NR’s Master´s Prize is awarded annually to the best master´s thesis in mathematics and ICT at the University of Oslo (UiO) and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

The Norwegian Computing Center recruits most of its research scientists from UiO and NTNU, and hopes that this award can contribute to strengthening the recruitment for mathematics and informatics studies.

In addition, NR would like to stimulate the best students to make extra work.

The prizes consist of a diploma and 40,000 NOK (was 25,000 NOK until 2020)

The subject area is limited to master’s theses submitted to the two departments Department of Mathematics and Department of Informatics at UiO, and Department of Mathematical Sciences and Department of Computer Science and Information Science at NTNU. One prize is awarded at UiO and one at NTNU. The juries consist of employees from the affected institutes, and the prizes are awarded independently of each other.

NR’s Master’s Prize is also presented on a separate page at NTNU:
