Master in Cold climate engineering

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.

This trend is expected to increase in the near future. In order to meet the demands of the industry as well as ensuring that engineers working in the fragile Arctic environment are fit for the job, the Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering has been established.

Graduates from the programme will benefit from the combined competencies, knowledge and facilities from some of the leading technical universities in the field of Arctic research and will gain a holistic approach to engineering in one of the most challenging regions of the world.

Study Tracks

The Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering consists of three specialised study tracks:

  • Land Track: Focus on Arctic geoengineering
  • Sea Track: Arctic ships and offshore structures and Arctic operations
  • Space Track: Focus on mapping and observing the Arctic

Which Degree Will I Get?

The Cold Climate Engineering programme is a so-called double degree programme. When you finish the Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering you will receive a degree from both universities you have attended during your master’s programme.

You will receive a degree diploma with the progamme name: Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering with the following double degree titles for each track:

Land track:

  • DTU: Master of Science in Civil Engineering
  • NTNU: Master of Science in Cold Climate Engineering

Sea track:

  • Aalto: Master of Science (Technology)
  • NTNU: Master of Science in Cold Climate Engineering

Space track:

  • Aalto: Master of Science (Technology)
  • DTU: Master of Science in Earth and Space Physics and Engineering
