With 71 per cent of its surface covered by water the earth is known as the blue planet. The oceans are the main highways of international trade. Moreover, they provide us with many vital resources: the oceans have vast living resources in the form of fish and plankton and there are gigantic resources of raw materials below the seas such as oil, gas and minerals. 75 per cent of the energy of the sun that is absorbed by the earth is absorbed by the oceans. This energy can be utilized by offshore wind turbines and wave energy converters, and it is the basis for the life in the oceans that can be utilized for food.

Ships are the most energy efficient means transportation and with 90 per cent of world trade being ship borne it is the basis for our modern life. Also, cruising, sailing and boating provide great fun for many people. Only by being better at utilizing the resources of the seas will it be possible to feed the growing population of the earth. And only by improving our activities at sea can we reduce our harmful impact on the environment and in this way make the living conditions better, for both humans and animals. This is the paramount future challenge for naval architects and other engineers dealing with maritime engineering.

The Nordic Master in Maritime Engineering combines the lead expertise of the five universities with long standing tradition and competence in the field of naval architecture, offshore engineering and maritime engineering. The programme gives you the opportunity to choose between five study environments that are all highly specialized and technologically advanced. It thus offers you a unique possibility to benefit from the lead expertise of each of the five universities and specialize to the top level in a stimulating environment together with other Nordic and international students.

The language of instruction is English. Upon graduation, students will receive a degree from each of the two universities in which they spent a part of their studies, thus receiving a double degree.


To be admitted to this programme, you must have an academic bachelor degree.

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet's hovedadresse ligger i Lyngby 10 kilometer nord for København, og det er primært her at DTU studerende bliver undervist. Du kan tage turen til DTU i Lyngby med bil eller ved hjælp af offentlige transportmidler. Der kører flere busser næsten lige til døren og Lyngby Station ligger 2 km. væk, men også her er der gode busforbindelser, f.eks. bus nr. 300S mod Nærum eller bus nr. 190. Begge har stoppested på Anker Engelunds Vej.
