About the program

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.

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.


Study at two Nordic universities

The Master’s program in Cold climate engineering is a collaboration between three of the five 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 Cold Climate Engineering are:

 

Admission requirements

Students applying for the Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering must have obtained a Bachelor’s (BSc) Degree corresponding to a minimum 180 ECTS credits.

There are a number of additional requirements depends on study tracks, also with respect to participant’s English language abilities.
