The Nordic master program in Maritime Engineering is a two-year (120 university credits) master program on the advanced level (second cycle) starting every year in late August. The instruction language is English. The programme is structured in two parts:

  1. In the first year, focus is on general maritime engineering topics and naval architecture on Master level: stability, resistance and propulsion, seakeeping, manoeuvring and ship and ocean structures.
  2. In the second year, students specialize in one of the five study tracks: Ocean Structures (NTNU), Passenger Ships (Aalto), Ship Design (Chalmers), Ship Operations (DTU), Small Craft (KTH). Some more information on the tracks is given in Appendix A.

It is thus required that the student starts at one of the partner universities for year 1 and finish the studies at another university for year 2. A student starting at KTH may not take the KTH study track during year 2.
