Department of Informatics (IFI) was established in 1977 when a division of the Mathematics Department merged with a division of the Department of Physics. IFI was a pioneer offering the very first lectures within computer science in Norway.
The department has a wide range of courses and study programmes, with 800 undergraduates, 450 master's students and 220 PhD students.
IFI has a research environment with 13 research groups.
In 2011 the department moved into one of Europe's most advanced university buildings, Ole Johan Dahl's house, 28 250 sqm.
