The programme focuses on the technical and safety related challenges associated with industrial activities in the High North. Special attention is given to maritime and offshore operations in the harsh and vulnerable Arctic environment. The students are introduced to methods and tools for managing advanced, complex and integrated technical systems with respect to operation and maintenance, reliability and production assurance, health, safety & environmental risk as well as emergency preparedness.
The programme is a 2 year, full-time study with a fixed schedule. The courses will to some extent be adapted to part-time students. The first year consists of 50 ECTS of mandatory courses being common to all students and one 10 ECTS elective course. These are technical descriptive courses and method oriented courses. All courses are independent of each other. In the second year the students will achieve a specialization of their field of study through elective courses and by the choice among a number of pre-defined syllabuses. The students will also carry out a specialization project. The last semester is dedicated to a 30 ECTS master thesis.
