Welcome, international students!
This page contains all of the important information for international maths and physics students who are not yet familiar with Delta.
What is Delta?
A lot of the social and academic life at NTNU revolves around special student association which in Norwegian are called Linjeforeninger (literally area-of-study-associations). Delta is the linjeforening for mathematics and physics; it is a large, active and inclusive community that brings together students who study, or have studied, maths and physics.
Delta can’t be described properly in a few sentences, so here is a (rather incomplete) list of what a typical student in Delta might do:
- Sit at the Delta “office” and chill, chat, have a drink, play games, etc.
- Join Deltas events such as the immatriculation ball, trip to Åre in Sweden, amazing race, spring wine celebration, cabin- and camping trips, etc,
- Join one or more of Delta’s many subgroups, such as its choir, newspaper, film group, hiking group, etc,
- Spend Friday evening at the natural science pub (Norwegian: Realfagskjelleren) in the Moholt student village,
- Help organize the Trondheim Science Week (Norwegian: Realfagsdagene), a multi-day event featuring world-famous scientists and Delta’s annual ball.
We are also planning some events and means to help international students integrate with local student life, learn norwegian, etc.
You can find all kinds of information about delta on this website, though all pages but this one are currently in Norwegian.
Norwegian maths and physics students are integrated in Delta during their first weeks of study. As an international student, you can fill out this short form:
This will enable us to contact you and let you know about events or other relevant information that will help you get to know the Delta community.
We also have some very active facebook groups. You can ask anyone who is already in these to add you when you meet them.
If you are doing a degree in physics or mathematics, you can become an official member (Norwegian: Deltager) of Delta by paying a one-time fee of 300 NOK. In practice, this means that you get a discount on official events and voting rights at Delta’s general assembly. But you don’t need to be an official member to be welcome in the Delta community, including all its events and activities.
