The Master’s program in Maritime Engineering is a collaboration between five of the leading technical universities in the Nordic countries (Nordic Five Tech). The program gives you a unique opportunity to tailor your degree based on your academic interests.

You will get to study at two of the partner universities, spending one year at each. You graduate with a double master’s degree from the two universities. 

The universities participating in the Nordic master in Maritime Engineering are:

  • Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)
  • Aalto University in Finland
  • Chalmers University of Technology
  • Technical University of Denmark (DTU)

The coordinator of the Nordic Master in Environmental Engineering  is Aalto University.

You can find more information about the study programme on Aaltos webpage.

NTNU is ranked number four in the world for Marine/Ocean Engineering by Shanghai Ranking's 2022.

The Nordic Master in Maritime Engineering is based on the expertise of the participating universities within naval architecture, offshore engineering and maritime engineering. Participants will profit from the Nordic Five Tech universities' long standing tradition and competence in the field and Nordic students wishing to specialize in a specific area of expertise offered within the alliance.

The Nordic Master programme in Maritime Engineering deals with ships, small craft, yachts and offshore structures. The programme focuses on principles within design, construction and operation of ship and offshore structures, and their interaction with the environment.
