Get a unique understanding of the Arctic

Cold climate engineering has an increasingly important role to play to ensure a sustainable development of the Arctic. As a student on Master in Cold Climate Engineering you will get valuable and unique first-hand insight into working as an engineering in one of the most challenging areas of the world.

Master in Cold Climate Engineering is a collaboration between three of the five leading technical universities in the Nordic countries (Nordic Five Tech). You get to spend at least one semester (30 ECTS) at two of the partner universities. You graduate with a double master’s degree from the two universities. 

The coordinator of Master in Cold Climate Engineering is Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Find more information about the master's programme on DTUs webpage.

Graduates from the programme will benefit from the combined competencies, knowledge and facilities from some of the leading technical universities in the field of Arctic research and will gain a holistic approach to engineering in one of the most challenging regions of the world.

The master is the first comprehensive master’s programme in cold climate engineering in Europe and gives you an unique possibility to do field work and projects in Greenland or Svalbard. By actually going to the Arctic and applying your skills, you get valuable first-hand insight into working as an engineer in one of the most challenging areas of the world.

You can choose between the following study tracks:

  • Land Track: focus on Arctic Geoengineering (DTU and NTNU)
  • Sea Track: focus on Arctic ships and offshore structures (NTNU and Aalto)
  • Space Track: focus on mapping and observing the Arctic (Aalto and DTU)
