There is also a council at the IE Faculty, called Studieprogramrådet, that consists of student representatives (institutt-tillitsvalgt, ITV) and the study programme leaders. 


Overview of Cohorts

A cohort coordinator is an extra point of communication for an entire cohort of students, across courses, focusing on students' experience of their learning environment, working closely together with the student class contacts (KTV), study councellors and administrative staff.

Class Mentor Program 

For the students of the MTKOM and BDIGSEC (Gjøvik) programs, IIK offers a mentorship program. Students of MSTCNNS (year 1) are covered by the MTKOM program.

Class mentors offer 3 hours of drop-in help for any course or question for a specific study year. Have a look at the table below for the time for each program and study year. Some mentors are available in a specific room and/or digitally via a specific channel on this Teams. There you can also ask questions.

Example 1: If you are an MTKOM student in your first year, your class mentors are Eva, Nina, Emil and Aksel. They are avaiable Thursdays between 14:00-17:00. Chat with them on the respective channel on Teams, or visit them in the room shown in the table (if any).

Example 2: If you are an MSTCNNS student in your first year, you can join the offer for MTKOM year 3. That means, Andreas, Edward and Kristian are your mentors.

Many thanks to the many mentors that provide their help!
