Knut Brautaset (born 16 September 1939) is a Norwegian engineer.

He worked as a civil engineer in Detroit, Michigan from 1965 to 1970. When moving back to Norway in 1970, he was hired at the Southern Norway Technical School,[1] which changed its name to Agder Regional College of Engineering (Norwegian: Agder ingeniør- og distriktshøgskole). From 1982 to 1989 he was the rector of this Grimstad-based college.[2] When Agder University College was created through a merger of the region's colleges in 1994, Brautaset became the first rector there, and served until 2000.[3] He has also been the board chairman of the Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Higher Education for six years.[1]

He resides in Grimstad.[1]
