About the Programme
The world’s oceans have huge living resources which will become more and more important for humans, and which we will depend on for our further welfare. In order to use, protect and further develop these resources in a sustainable way, there is a need for dedicated and well educated young people with interdisciplinary knowledge about the interactions between marine biological resources and their use, the marine environment, marine technology, economy, and public concerns related to the marine sector. The MSc programme Ocean Resources at NTNU aims to give the students a broad perspective beside their main in-depth specialization in marine natural or science or marine engineering (see main domains in Figure 1). If you find it stimulating to take part and work with our further development of sustainable marine living resources, the MSc program Ocean Resources at NTNU is something you should consider.
The Master of Science programme in Ocean Resources is a two-year international multidisciplinary MSc-programme. Both natural science and engineering departments are involved, and the programme is especially designed to give the students a broad understanding of the complex interactions in the marine sector. NTNU has excellent research communities within these fields and a close contact with industry and relevant partners.
The programme offers three specializations which include an individual research project with publication of a Master Degree thesis according to international standards. The specializations are as follows:
- Fisheries and marine resources (Harvesting)
- Marine biology and biochemistry (Ecosystems and Industrial Biotechnology)
NTNU Ocean Science and Technology
Marine and maritime research is a strategic research focus area at NTNU. It coordinates and initiates new multidisciplinary activities within research, education and innovation, providing opportunities to investigate complex challenges and opportunities. Marine studies at NTNU are of high quality, giving students the knowledge and competence that is valued by the industry and society at large.
