School of Technology

Theory and application

Reykjavik University's School of Technology emphasises quality of teaching and the balance between a strong theoretical foundation and applied knowledge of the latest technologies and methods.

The School offers study programmes in engineering and computer science in three different departments. Courses are at BSc and MSc level, as well as PhD. Most MSc programmes are taught in English.


Research is carried out in centres that focus on a wide range of subjects such as biomechanics, applied neuroscience, tissue engineering, structural and earthquake engineering, rheology, microwave engineering, optimization, language technology, electrical power engineering, turbulence, sustainable energy, nanotechnology, risk and decision analysis, project management, artificial intelligence, virtual environments, software engineering, databases, natural language processing, human-computer interaction, and theoretical computer science.


Studies in undergraduate and master's programmes at the School of Computer Science have been awarded the European Quality Assurance Network for Informatics Education (EQANIE).
