BEng in Fisheries Technology

At the BEng programme Fisheries Technology, students acquire knowledge about all elements in the value chain in fishing and food production of fish and shellfish. The programme is taught in Danish.

About the programme

Fisheries Technology is a Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) programme aimed at graduates wishing to work as a fisheries engineer—with focus on the entire value chain from biological production of living resources over catching to processing and management of fish and shellfish.

The first three semesters of the study programme take part at DTU's Campus in Sisimiut, Greenland. This allows for close collaboration between the fisheries industry, local communities, and Arctic DTU and for utilization of the special conditions offered by the Arctic climate. Here, impacts from climate change quickly make themselves felt on biological production and fisheries, while the effect of fishing operations on ecosystems is relatively long-term. This entails special challenges for fisheries technology and management. The fourth and fifth semesters are taught at DTU in Hirtshals, Denmark and the final three semesters consist of an internship, elective courses and the BEng project.

Please note that that the BEng programme is taught exclusively in Danish.
