The Nordic Master in Cold Climate Engineering offers students to study Arctic Engineering and develop Arctic competences, which are sought for by the industry. This two-year double degree master level engineering education is offered within the Nordic Five Tech alliance and includes courses taught in Svalbard (UNIS) and Greenland (DTU Campus Sisimiut). That the students are experiencing the Arctic is one of the main added values of this education and contributes to the development of Arctic competences for the students according to Kolbs learning cycle.
