Our driving force
A key component that helps us innovate are the companies that contribute to this program.
Reykjavik University's (RU) subjects in research and teaching are science and engineering, computer science, business, and law. The University has a modern, interdisciplinary approach and offers programmes that, for example, cross-business with computer science and computer science with engineering. RU is at the forefront of research in Iceland in its focus areas.
RU emphasises hands-on learning that prepares students for the challenges they will meet after graduation. This means working with other students completing actual, real world assignments and projects, often in collaboration with companies and institutions. This is one way in which students benefit from RU's extensive connection to industry. Classes are kept small to encourage interactions between students and teachers.
