NTNU Students Win Schlumberger Visual Computing Prize
Two students studying Visual Computing at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) have shared the top honors in the Schlumberger (Norway) Visual Computing Prize.
The competition—a joint initiative developed as part of the collaboration between the NTNU and Schlumberger—is held annually and aims to encourage students to pursue visual computing. Awards are presented at the end of each academic year to the best performing students in Visual Computing Fundamentals, Graphics and Visualization and Computer Vision.
As a pioneer of innovative technology, Schlumberger is constantly at the forefront of new digital technology development and application.
Torjer Halle, Chairman, Schlumberger Norway, who presented the prize to the students at the Department of Computer and Information Science, says, “The competition enables the winners to get involved with real-life challenges and perhaps even make their mark on the technologies of the future.
“At Schlumberger, we are constantly looking for new ways to make our industry more efficient through digital enablement and this relies on the enthusiasm, skills, and contribution of the next generation.”
He continues, “On behalf of Schlumberger, I’d like to offer my warmest congratulations to Øivind and Øyvind. We look forward to welcoming them in Stavanger in November where they’ll take part in our very own hackathon and work alongside our employees on a variety of computer programming projects.”
