– About the programme

Norway is in the upper class when it comes to marine activities.

  • Offshore oil and gas activities
  • Shipping
  • Fisheries and aquaculture
  • Renewable energy

These industries make the backbone of the Norwegian economy. Exciting and challenging tasks are out there, waiting for you.

Well reputed research environment

The marine technology programme is located in a well reputed research environment with long traditions. The large laboratories at the Department of Marine Technology (IMT) provide unique opportunities for research. No other university can offer their students anything like this.

The Marine Technology Centre (MTS) holds one of NTNU's three Centres of Excellence (Centre of Ship and Ocean Structures: CeSOS). Maritime and marine research are among NTNU's six priority areas.

What do we expect from you?

The formal entrance requirements are Higher Education Entrance Qualifications, with emphasis on mathematics and physics. Students with pre-courses in scientific subjects from public colleges, may apply.

Interests in mathematics, physics and computing are an advantage, but enthusiasm and curiosity are equally important. The marine industry is international, so we welcome adventurous spirits and offer opportunities for working abroad.

The first two years of this degree programme emphasise basic technological subjects such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, etc. as well as basic marine technology. These subjects make the basic knowledge that is needed to solve marine technological challenges.


You have to meet the Norwegian language requirements, or have a Scandinavian language as your mother tongue, if you want to  apply to any of NTNU's degree programmes. You also must meet the basic requirement for admission, and demonstrate that you meet the English language requirements.

The application deadline for the programme is March 1st for students with an international degree, and April 15th for Norwegian and Nordic degree students. Students apply through Samordna Opptak.
