The Arctic is a place unlike anywhere else. The ecosystem is fragile, the weather can be challenging and the infrastructure is scarce. These conditions make high demands on engineers working here.
The Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering is the first comprehensive master’s programme in cold climate engineering in Europe and gives the students a unique possibility to do field work and projects in Greenland or Svalbard. By actually going to the Arctic and applying their skills, the graduates get valuable first-hand insight into working as an engineer in one of the most challenging areas of the world.
Cold climate engineering has an increasingly important role to play in order to ensure a sustainable development of the Arctic. New shipping routes as well as mining possibilities are emerging in the region. The development of new industry in the Arctic region is intensifying fast and the industry now demands engineers who have specific Arctic competencies.
Graduates from the Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering will have the skills necessary to meet the demands of the industry as well to work in the fragile Arctic environment.
The main focus of the Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering is to give the students a profound understanding of how the obtained specializations can be applied in jobs as researchers, consulting or practising engineers in the Arctic.
All graduates will have the ability to work within a team of experts having different international backgrounds such as education, values, language, culture, etc.. and have a profound understanding of the challenging Arctic environment.
The teaching methods will include lectures, assignments, field work, laboratory work and project work. Theory is supported by experimental work and modelling, which are used intensively, and also depending on the track.
The programme consists of three specialised 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 (DTU and Aalto)
You´ll find more information on study tracks and curricula on the programmes own website: Study Linies
Studying abroad jump-starts your career as employers are always looking for graduates with an international outlook and intercultural competencies. Upon graduation you may be eligible to enter a PhD programme at any of the participating universities, but you are also qualitied for demanding positions in industry.
As a Cold Climate Engineering graduate you will typically be employed at consulting, design, surveying and construction companies, mining industry, oil companies, governmental bodies, or at research institutes and universities, which have activities related to the Arctic. Your role may be that of chief executive, development manager, team manager, consultant, specialist, or researcher.
