About us

The von Karman institute for Fluid Dynamics
Education in Research through Research

VKI is a non-profit international educational and scientific organisation, hosting three departments (aeronautics and aerospace, environmental and applied fluid dynamics, and turbomachinery & propulsion). It provides post-graduate education in fluid dynamics (Research Master in Fluid Dynamics (Master-after-master level), Doctoral Programme, Short Training Program and lecture series) and encourages "training in research through research". The von Karman Institute undertakes and promotes research in the field of fluid dynamics. Extensive research on experimental, computational and theoretical aspects of gas and liquid flows is carried out at the VKI under the direction of the faculty and research engineers, sponsored mainly by governmental and international agencies as well as industries.

Signature of a bilateral inter-instutioal agreement bewteen VKI and NTNU

Amidst the Belgian Economic Mission to Norway, the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics (VKI) and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) came together to conclude a Bilateral Inter-Institutional agreement!
This agreement marks the beginning of a dynamic collaboration under the Erasmus+ program, facilitating the exchange of students and staff between our prestigious institutions.
At VKI, renowned globally for its pioneering research and education in fluid dynamics, and NTNU, recognized as a world leader in science and technology, this partnership holds immense promise. Together, we aim to delve into the realms of fluid dynamics, addressing crucial environmental and industrial challenges of our time, both onshore, offshore, and nearshore.
