Programme description

The program is a 2 years, 120 credits, full-time study at the Department of Technology and Safety. It is an interdisciplinary program founded on engineering science. The program focuses on the technical and safety related challenges associated with industrial activities in the High North. 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. Special attention is given to maritime and offshore operations in the harsh and vulnerable Arctic environment.

The Master’s program offer the following disciplines:

Teaching and assessment

The study program uses a variety of teaching methods, and includes lectures, projects, student presentations, teamwork and mandatory assignments. These methods will help students to take an active role in the learning process by writing tasks and project reports in order to achieve the total learning outcome of the study program. It is emphasized that learning activities will contribute to professional development of students and their skills for collaboration, communication and practical problem solving through working in groups. The study program provides knowledge about scientific theories and methods, and the project paper and master thesis are designed for individual research work.

Lectures are organized either as blocks or regularly, on a weekly basis. In some courses, seminars may be arranged. Some courses may include compulsory lectures, exercises, excursion and approval of exercises/fieldwork or semester reports. This will be stated in the course descriptions.

Assessment methods will vary between written exam, home exam, group assignments, project submission and oral exam. In some cases, the assessment will be a combination of different assessment methods. For a more detailed description of the assessment forms, see subject descriptions. Professional achievements are assessed either with letter marks or passed / failed. If no assessment is required, "completed / non-completed" can be used.


Language of instruction

The language of instruction and all syllabus material is English.

Exchange possibilities

Students are encouraged to participate in exchange programmes abroad, and the Department offers assistance for students who will participate in exchange programmes. High North universities are of special interest. For each application, an individual assessment will be carried out by the Head of Studies.

UIT cooperates closely with the University Centre in Svalbard, UNIS, and the programme offers great opportunities for elective courses or student exchange on Svalbard. The following UNIS courses are pre-approved in the programme:


Job prospectives

Technological skills are highly appreciated by the industry. With a M.Sc. degree in engineering, you will have excellent job opportunities in the oil and gas industry, in the maritime industry and in the public administration. Our engineers work with the development of new technical solutions in engineering companies. Other engineers are responsible for the supervision of different kinds of industrial facilities, including modifications, maintenance and operations. Engineering is a global business, and you may have an international career. Research and education may be an option, or further study on Ph.D. level.
