Norwegian University of Science and Technology

The Norwegian University of Science and Technology is a public research university in Norway with the main campus in Trondheim and smaller campuses in Gjøvik and Ålesund. The largest university in Norway, NTNU has over 40,000 students. NTNU in its current form was established by the King-in-Council in 1996 by the merger of the former University of Trondheim and other university-level institutions, with roots dating back to 1760, has also incorporated some former university colleges. NTNU is ranked in the top one percentage among the world's universities in the 101–400 range depending on ranking. NTNU has the main national responsibility for education and research in engineering and technology, is the successor of Norway's preeminent engineering university, the Norwegian Institute of Technology, established by Parliament in 1910 as Norway's national engineering university. In addition to engineering and natural sciences, the university offers higher education in other academic disciplines ranging from medicine, social sciences, the arts, teacher education and fine art.

NTNU is well known for its close collaboration with industry, with its R&D partner SINTEF, which provided it with the biggest industrial link among all the technical universities in the world. The university's academics include three Nobel laureates in medicine, Edvard Moser, May-Britt Moser and John O'Keefe. NTNU is a young institution with a long history; the university, in its current form, was established in 1996 by the merger of six research and higher education institutions in Trondheim, as follows: Norwegian Institute of Technology, established in 1910 Museum of Natural History and Archaeology, established in 1767 Norwegian College of General Sciences, established in 1922 Faculty of Medicine, established in 1975 Trondheim Academy of Fine Art, established in 1987 Trondheim Conservatory of Music, established in 1973Prior to the merger, NTH, NLHT, DMF, VM together constituted the University of Trondheim, a much looser organization. However, the university's root goes back to 1760, with the foundation of Det Trondhiemske Selskab, which in 1767 became the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters.

The engineering education in Trondheim began with Trondhjems Tekniske Læreanstalt in 1870, in 1910, Norwegian Institute of Technology opened officially. In 2010, NTNU celebrated the 250th anniversary of Trondheim Academy. NTNU celebrated the 100th anniversary of NTH in the same year; the centennial was celebrated by the publication of several books, among them a history of the university, entitled "Turbulens og tankekraft. Historien om NTNU" which translates as "Turbulence and mindpower: The history of NTNU". Det Trondhiemske Selskab, Norway's first academic society, was founded in 1760. In 1767, it changed its name to the Royal Norwegian Society of Science and Letters upon receiving recognition from the Danish Crown. DKNVS library – today known as NTNU Gunnerus Library – was founded in 1768, is Norway's oldest library. First proposal for a Norwegian Polytechnical Institute was made in 1833. Trondhjems Tekniske Læreanstalt or TTL was founded in 1870; the newly formed school educated engineers of various fields.

In 1898, TTL moved to a larger building in Munkegata. TTL was disbanded in 1900s. In 1900, the Norwegian Parliament passed a resolution supporting the establishment of Norwegian Institute of Technology in Trondheim. NTH was opened on September 15, 1910. Five academical departments were present in the parliament's resolution of 31 May 1900, such as Architecture and Urban Planning, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical engineering, Chemistry. In 1922, Norwegian College of Teaching in Trondheim opened at Lade gård. In 1950, Stiftelsen for industriell og teknisk forskning or SINTEF was founded as part of NTH and as its link to Norwegian industry. University of Trondheim was established in 1968, in Department of Medicine established as part of UNiT in 1974, it was designed by the architect Henning Larsen. In 1984, NLHT reformed into Norwegian College of General Sciences as part of UNiT. On 1 January 1996, the University of Trondheim became the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

In 1989, NTH Rector Karsten Jakobsen had launched the idea of a Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim. On March 21, 1995, the Parliament, with a majority after a long debate, decided to establish NTNU in Trondheim. In 2014, the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research asked the country's universities and university colleges to provide suggestions and ideas for rebuilding Norway's institutions of higher education; the context of the request was that the Norwegian government wanted to cut back on the number of institutions in the sector. The NTNU board decided on 28 January 2015 to merge NTNU with the University Colleges of Sør-Trøndelag, Ålesund and Gjøvik to form a new university that would retain the university's current name, Norwegian University of Science and Technology; the merger, which went into effect in January 2016, made NTNU Norway's largest single university. NTNU has several campuses in Trondheim.

Gottschalk returned to the United States, moving to Tucson, Arizona, he became a professor of industrial design at the new Modernist style West Campus of Pima Community College. Gottschalk's most productive artistic period was in Arizona, from the 1950s to his death in 2005, his artistic interests included mid-century modern industrial design which combined "natural" materials like leather with production materials such as aluminum and steel.

The result was beautifully proportioned work that embraced and embodied both the Southwestern aesthetic and Modern design principles. Gottschalk worked with leather, irregular and flawed, celebrating the material's imperfections, his distinctive logo appears on all of his products. He created oil paintings.
