The natural resources of the High North are attracting the industry. New offshore oil & gas fields are being developed. Minerals and mining are given increased attention. Maritime transport in Arctic waters is growing. The fisheries have become highly industrialized. New industrial facilities will be developed in the remote, hostile and vulnerable Arctic environment. The industry faces unknown challenges and new technological solutions will be developed and safety issues must be addressed. By joining this master programme you will obtain a unique Arctic engineering knowledge aimed towards technology and safety challenges in the High North. Special attention is given to maritime and offshore operations. Do you want to possess the unique Arctic engineering competence? Are you science and technology oriented? Do you have a fascination of the High North? Then you should join the team of engineers for the Arctic! Then this master program is the right thing for you!
The programme focuses on the technical and safety related challenges associated with industrial activities in the High North. Special attention is given to maritime and offshore operations in the harsh and vulnerable Arctic environment. The students are introduced to methods and tools for managing advanced, complex and integrated technical systems with respect to operation and maintenance, reliability and production assurance, health, safety & environmental risk as well as emergency preparedness.
The programme is a 2 year, full-time study with a fixed schedule. The courses will to some extent be adapted to part-time students. The first year consists of 50 ECTS of mandatory courses being common to all students and one 10 ECTS elective course. These are technical descriptive courses and method oriented courses. All courses are independent of each other. In the second year the students will achieve a specialization of their field of study through elective courses and by the choice among a number of pre-defined syllabuses. The students will also carry out a specialization project. The last semester is dedicated to a 30 ECTS master thesis.
The master programme has three specializations:
Admission to the Master's programme in Technology and Safety in the High North requires a Bachelor's degree (180 ECTS) in Engineering or other relevant technological degree on Bachelor level. Relevant field of study may be mechanical, processing, safety, nautical, automation or civil engineering. Other fields of study may be considered upon individual assessment.
Applicants must enclose an application essay (Statement of purpose) written in English (maximum of two pages). This should include descriptions of their motivation for, interest in and expectations relating to their Master's degree studies and ideas for their Master`s Thesis project.
The lectures assume advanced knowledge of mathematics and statistics.
