Our safety engineering-, economics-, management-, and maritime studies have its roots in the local and regional petro maritime industries.

Most people know that engineers build roads, bridges, buildings and machinery. But engineers are also needed in the offshore, maritime and safety industry. Common for most engineers are using and devloping new and exciting technology. Our nautical studies is closely connected to one of Norway's strongest maritime clusters preparing students for work as an officer on a ship but also for the onshore part of the maritime industry.
