SUBPRO summer internships 2023

Dear students

For the summer of 2023 SUBPRO announces 5 six weeks summer internships. The plan is to continue these with industry-oriented specialization project’s during the fall 2023 and Master thesis’ spring 2024.

SUBPRO is a centre for researched-based innovation within subsea production and processing, with participation from three Faculties and four Departments at NTNU:

  • Department of Chemical Engineering (IKP)
  • Department of Geoscience and Petroleum (IGP)
  • Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MTP)
  • Department of Engineering Cybernetics (ITK)

SUBPRO is organized in five research areas:

  1. Field Architecture
  2. RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety)
  3. Separation - Fluid characterization
  4. Separation – Process Concepts
  5. System Control

SUBPRO is currently focusing on forming a bridge towards a zero-emissions future (SUBPRO Zero).

Please send your application with CV and grades to Pål J. Aune through this MachForm-link asap and by the 27th of March 2023 at the very latest.  Mark the application with the relevant research area and possibly the topic(s) you are interested in.

For questions regarding the internships, feel free to reply to this email or ask the supervisors directly. But due to privacy rights and GDPR-rules, I am not allowed to receive your documents by email, so remember to apply through the Machform.
