The future for product- and system design is unlimited. You can be part of moulding the offshore-future with a Master’s Degree in Product and System Design from NTNU in Ålesund. Advanced Maritime Operations are in the center of Western Norway’s shipping activities. The program focuses on the design of ship equipment and maritime systems. Despite the focus on the maritime, the applied design methods are generic, and can be applied to other industries.
A Bachelor of Science degree or a similar qualification (at least 3 years of university study) in areas related to mechanical engineering, automation, mechatronics, ship design or marine engineering, with minimum 30 ECTS mathematics (one semester).
There is nothing more global than maritime activities, and specialists in maritime systems and operations have the world as a workplace. Students that are already employed by a company, can work on tasks initiated by the industry through the study. This way, linking the relevant challenges from business to theory, NTNU in Alesund will put you in touch with the maritime industry.
