The Winter Games

BTS winter games are the organizers behind the fat mountain trip which is arranged in January every school year. We at BTS Winter Games work to arrange a mountain hike with activities for everyone, whether it is to stand on the slopes from sunrise to midnight or just enjoy the après ski and music to the fullest. This is an event for all students, where there are activities and other students for everyone's taste. This is a fantastic opportunity to both go on a friend trip and get to know lots of other students!


The Winter Games' board consists of a manager, deputy manager, finance manager, event manager, marketing manager, sponsor manager and booking manager. These positions are chosen at the beginning of the spring semester, right after the winter games are arranged. In addition to these positions, we are completely dependent on a super working group! The working group helps the board with work tasks, promotion and other work tasks. The working group is selected at the beginning of the autumn semester, where everyone can come for an interview.

BTS Gummibåt

BTS Gummibåt was founded in 2022 as an activity group under BTS (Bergen Teknikersamfund) at Høgskulen på Vestlandet, Bergen. This activity group was founded because there was a lack of an activity group that only focused on getting to know each other better, as well as creating a safe and social arena for everyone, no matter who you are, what you do or what you like. We want to build a great psychosocial environment based on everything being low-threshold and for everyone.


We organize various activities during each semester such as the Gummibåtfestival, mountain trips, swimming, barbecues, volleyball, bowling and more. Our members also play a key role as they often get to help decide which activities we will do together. Like the rest of the BTS, Gummibåt is managed on a voluntary basis by students at HVL.

BTS Cares

BTS Cares consists of a leader and three members. The leader and one member are elected in the spring, and two members are elected in the autumn. We also have a working group that helps us carry out our events.

BTS Cares is responsible for hosting several events to make it easier for students to participate in charitable work. We were established as a subgroup in 2015. We have our events such as Knit and Sip, charity races, gift collecting close to Christmas and Charity evenings with fundraising. It is the students' involvement in charitable work that drives BTS Cares, and we will constantly come up with more events that can help even more people to get involved. We want to show that we care about our fellow students and the society we live in.

BTS Stock club was founded in the autumn of 2008 as a subgroup of Bergen Teknikersamfund (BTS), and consists of students from Høgskulen på Vestlandet campus Bergen. Our main activity is to manage the BTS fund, which is part of BTS 'long-term capital investments. It was established in March 2015 with NOK 170,000 as start-up capital. The goal is to manage the portfolio in a sensible and future-oriented way, and the investment philosophy is therefore based on long-term investments and diversification. Clear guidelines have been arranged for managing the portfolio to ensure a solid foundation for the stock trading.


The stock club aims to increase awareness, knowledge and commitment around shares and financial instruments among students at HVL. Within the group, emphasis is placed on building a strong professional environment in order to secure a solid foundation for the investments. To achieve our vision of strengthening the student body's knowledge of stock trading, we arrange a larger event every spring. This is aimed at all the major student institutions in Bergen and takes place on the Kronstad campus.


BTS Invest consists of a board of five and a working group of varying sizes. Together, we work with analyzing various industries and companies to follow up the portfolio and to find attractive new investments.

Career Day

Career Day is one of the largest events for BTS throughout the year. Here, the business community gets in touch with the students and vice versa. A good opportunity to get in touch with companies within their field of study and a great opportunity to get both a summer and a permanent job. It is no secret that most companies are private players, but also companies from the health and municipal sector can be seen. This is so that all fields of study are represented.

The career day consists of a board with a Leader, Deputy Leader, Event Manager, 2x company manager and 2x marketing manager. The board recruits a number of company sponsors during the autumn and they get a unique opportunity to get extra close to the companies they are responsible for and also have a place at the company's table during Career Evening.

TVIST-dotten is a humorous May 17 newspaper that has a long history in Bergen. The newspaper was first published in 1936 under the name "Lydpotten", but already the following year the name was changed to TVIST-dotten. The DOUBT DOT often referred to as Dotten has been published every year since 1936, with the exception of the war years.


Dotten addresses current topics and well-known events over the past year, with a humorous and ironic twist. After all, Dotten is a satire newspaper. The Wikipedia article about the TVIST dot states: "It is not uncommon for the newspaper to contain articles with very little root in reality." We could not have said it better. There has recently been some disagreement about how the TVIST dot should be written, but the current spelling is the TVIST dot. Previously, both the dispute dot, the TVIST dot and other variants have been written, but the correct name for the newspaper is the TVIST dot. Previously, the newspaper has adorned itself with a green color, but this was changed around the year 2007 to be red. The newspaper is written by a writing group consisting of volunteer students affiliated with the University College of Western Norway. It will then be sold by the same volunteers, possibly supplemented by a few more in the main procession on 17 May.


Bergen Teknikersamfund is the responsible publisher of the newspaper. All inquiries regarding the TVIST dot are made by e-mail:


The market group

Have you seen purple sweaters wandering around the school, or seen the name BTS appear on social media? Maybe you have observed a purple car in the streets of Bergen?  Profiling  is responsible for reaching out to the students at HVL, campus Bergen. The goal is for everyone to know about BTS, our vision, and what we can offer. The study time is much more than just reading, and the students will experience it for themselves!


BTS Cars:  At BTS, we are so lucky that we have our own van at our disposal. The car is a Toyota Hiace, better known as the Petra. Many people are afraid that Petra will suddenly, one day, break down. But if you treat a Petra well, she gives back twice, at least! The car can be used by internal in BTS who should need a slightly larger car to move something, or someone. The car is mainly used by students and beneficiaries within BTS, but line associations get a small discount if they have an agreement with us.

There are slightly different positions in the market group: Finance Manager, Web Manager, Graphic Manager and Car Technical Manager. These positions often have a working group that helps to operate the various areas of responsibility and all correspond to the Marketing Manager in the Core Board. 

English:  The marketing group is responsible for the internal marketing and targets the students at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, campus Bergen. We are making sure every student knows what BTS is, what events you can attend, what we can offer and general promotion.
