The new centre gathers the full weight of the University’s expertise in the maritime field and aims to offer one unified point of contact for enterprises and authorities operating in the industry and to make it easier for researchers from all parts of the university to pool their input to create new interdisciplinary solutions to the challenges facing the maritime industry.
The driving force behind the new centre is a partnership between DTU Mechanical Engineering, DTU Management Engineering and DTU Transport.

DTU Maritime Center will be coordinating maritime activities at DTU in the areas of research, teaching, innovation and scientific advice. The centre is also intended to reinforce the partnership between Danish and international universities through running shared courses and exchange programmes for undergraduates, PhD fellows and lecturers. Another important goal for DTU Maritime Center is to identify needs for education, research and innovation in consultation with the maritime sector.

Maritime Degrees at Copenhagen Business School

Likewise at Copenhagen Business School, the maritime activities and competencies are coordinated and developed through a maritime centre. Similar to DTU, CBS cooperates closely with the maritime business community to make research and teaching as relevant as possible.

Next to MBA and Master Programmes, DTU will launch a new bachelor degree programme in shipping in cooperation with Singapore Management University. The programme will include and an internship in the maritime sector and is a direct result of CBS Maritime’s response to recommendations from the government’s growth team for maritime Denmark.
