The study programme marine technology has been located at the Department of Marine Technology (IMT) for many years. It has long educational traditions. The advanced laboratories at the Marine Technology Centre, provide unique opportunities for research activities. It holds one of NTNU's three Centres of Excellence (Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems- AMOS). Maritime and marine research is one of NTNU's six priority areas.


  • International applicants - The 2 years Master's Degree in Marine Technology study programme, is nearly identical to The 2 years International Master's of Science Degree in Marine Technology study programme. However, the application procedures are different. International applicants should utilize the particular forms found on the pages of The 2 years International Master's of Science Degree in Marine Technology study programme.
  • Admission for engineers - Applicants with a Norwegian or Nordic educational background, may seek admission to the international study programme, but may also seek admission to The 2 years Master's Degree in Marine Technology study programme, (2-årig masterprogram - MIMART). Engineers having a Bachelor's degree and who are meeting the Norwegian language requirements, should apply through the university and colleges admission service (Samordnet opptak ).
