DTU Sisimiut campus located in Greenland

DTU Sisimiut Campus

DTU has many years of experience in the Arctic. The university has a strong presence in the Greenlandic society, partly because of the DTU campus in the Greenlandic town Sisimiut where engineers focusing on Arctic Civil Engineering are being educated.

Sisimiut is situated just north of the Arctic Circle and is Greenland’s second-largest town with around 5,600 inhabitants. The town is also home to DTU's campus in Greenland. The campus houses students who attend the Bachelor of Engineering in Arctic Civil Engineering as well as The Arctic Semester and Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering. 

By placing the programs in Greenland, DTU ensures that their engineers have knowledge of and experience with working in the Arctic during their studies.

A number of research activities and field work is being conducted from the Sisimiut Campus. The main areas are:

  • Buildings and Energy
  • Climate Change Monitoring
  • Cold Climate Constructions and Physical Environment
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Oceanography
  • Planning, Sustainability and Infrastructure
  • Sustainable Exploitation of Arctic Resources
