The Arctic Semester is part of the curriculum for the Master of Science in Civil Engineering, Architectural Engineering and Environmental Engineering at DTU. The semester is also part of the Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering. Students from these programs have first priority for the seats in the semester.
Students with other relevant backgrounds can also apply, but should be aware that some extracurricular work can be expected prior to the courses 41881/11854 to fulfill the course requirements.
It will be possible for you to follow only the first three courses of the semester (30857, 41882 and 12859) part Extreme Environment Engineering - but not the last part as those courses will have the first part as a prerequisite. Only students from BEng Arctic Civil Engineering and Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering – Space track are allowed to take single courses.
The first courses could be taken by DTU bachelor students on the last semester e.g. in combination with their bachelor's thesis.
If you live and work in Greenland or other Arctic countries and are an EU/EEA citizen, you can take the courses individually under Open University, if seats are available.
There is a limited number of seats for the semester, depending on physical space at Arctic DTU Campus Sisimiut. Full-semester students have first priority, followed by MSc students and then BSc students.
Fees and tuition
Tuition is free for students from universities with a bilateral student exchange agreement with DTU.
