NTNU QUAM Lab has the following scientific goals

  • Establish quantitative holistic models of the private and public ICT service provisioning infrastructure to improve quality and to handle the risk and vulnerability faced by ICT services operating in a heterogeneous infrastructure.
  • Proof of concept studies to form a basis for
    • setting guidelines for regulation.
    • a continuous monitoring, anomaly detections and handling, system improvement cycle, according to the Resilient Engineering approach.
    • management of service availability compliant with SLAs

NTNU QUAM Lab has the following training goals

  • Provide undergraduate course for all students to set the focus on reliability and security threats in current and future ICT systems and services
  • Provide graduate courses to give (all students) insight in quantifiable performance and dependability modelling by use of analytic models, simulations, and measurements. Also to provide specialist courses in performance and dependability design and modelling, and practical training in simulations.
  • Provide PhD courses for our PhD students to give them insight and practical training in advanced performance and dependability modelling, and advanced simulation techniques.
  • Graduate 10 master students every year within the scope of NTNU QUAM Lab (currently 6-7)
  • Graduate 2 PhD students every year within the scope of NTNU QUAM Lab (currently 1-3)
