MSc in Marine Coastal Development
- About the programme
The world’s oceans have waste resources which will become more and more important, and which we will depend upon in the future. In order to use and protect these resources and to develop coastal resources in a sustainable way, there is a need for in-depth and interdisciplinary knowledge about the interactions between economy, environment, technology, marine biological resources, and public concerns.
The Master of Science programme in Marine Coastal Development is a two-year international multidisciplinary MSc-programme. It 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 relevant external 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:
