BEng in Fisheries Technology

Fisheries Technology is a 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.

However, the study programme is not only aimed at work in Arctic regions, and it can be used globally. The study programme focuses broadly on developing and ensuring a sustainable fisheries industry—socially, economically, and environmentally.

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