At DTU you can choose from several courses and programmes covering the maritime area.
We offer study lines and courses that specialize in all aspects of Maritime Engineering: economic, management, technological, mechanical and design.
Regardless of which programme you choose, the flexible course structure at DTU allows you to add additional courses from DTU and abroad, such that all aspects of Maritime Engineering are covered, including naval architecture and skills in innovation and sustainability.
Our courses are taught by leading researchers, and as a student at DTU you get hands-on access to world-class facilities. Throughout your studies, you will be trained in advanced research methods, learn how to adopt a constructive and critical approach to research findings, and get experience with translating new knowledge into technical solutions.
Master's degree level - study lines and programmes in Maritime Engineering
Study line in Naval Architecture & Offshore Engineering
Learn methods to design, construct, test, and operate ships, offshore wind turbines, wave energy converters, and aquaculture facilities – while developing safe, cost-effective, and efficient structures with minimal adverse impacts on the local and global environments.
Industrial Engineering and Management - with a specialization in Supply Chain Management and Logistics
Specialize in the operational aspects within, e.g., the shipping industry, optimizing everything from supply chains, ports, routes, energy consumption, to decision-making procedures. In addition, you will consider the alternative fuels of the future and their impact on sustainable development.
Maritime Engineering (Nordic Five Tech)
Study ships, including, yachts and offshore structures, their design, construction and operation and their interaction with the environment. You will learn about design, construction, and technical operation of ships and offshore structures — including hydrostatics and stability, hydrodynamics, wave and wind loads, propulsion, and structural analyses.
