Medium resolution (2Å/px) but high s/n spectra of approximately twenty of the brightest blue stars in the young open cluster NGC 330 in the SMC have been obtained with EFOSC1 on the ESO 3.6m telescope, and analyzed in order to determine the atmospheric parameters and the evolutionary status of the stars. LTE and NLTE model atmosphere calculations were used to determine the stellar parameters. The Teff
values were derived from fits of the UV continua for all stars where these were available, using Robertson's (1974) B and V photometry to scale the Kurucz model fluxes for metallicity Z = 0.1Z⊙. Luminosities of the sample stars lie in the range 4.0 < log(L
*/L⊙) < 5.0 and spectral types between B0 and late-B.
