Arctic Technology is a 4-year civil engineering programme at the Technical University of Denmark with special focus on working in the Arctic. There are three study lines: Building & Construction, Environment & Planning and Geology & Natural Resources. All Arctic Technology students are given a common foundation to create sustainable living conditions in the arctic region. e.g. an Arctic Engineer learns how to design the necessary buildings and installations and to plan an infrastructure to assure supplies, exchange of people, goods and information, and proper disposal of waste. Students who wish to obtain an engineering degree in Arctic technology spend the first 1½ years of the engineering course at the centre in Sisimiut, followed by 2 semesters at the Technical University of Denmark in Lyngby near Copenhagen in Denmark. Then follows one semester traineeship in the arctic region. The final year of the education is taken af the Technical University of Denmark. An extra superstructure course lasting another two years leads to a Master's degree in civil engineering.
