Studying in the Arctic


Read about Lorenzo who travelled all the way from Italy to Greenland to be part of the Arctic Semester.

The Arctic is a place unlike anywhere else. The ecosystem is fragile, the weather can be challenging and the infrastructure is scarce. These conditions demand specialised skills from engineers working there.

The Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering is the first comprehensive master’s programme in cold climate engineering in Europe and gives the students a unique possibility to do field work and projects in Greenland or Svalbard.


First-hand Insight into Arctic Conditions

By actually going to the Arctic and applying their skills, the students get valuable first-hand insight into working as an engineer in one of the most challenging areas of the world.

The Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering offers courses at DTU’s campus in Sisimiut and at UNIS – the University Centre in Svalbard.

Below you can see a video recorded and edited by UNIS students who went on an expedition on and around Svalbard.
