DNV – Summer project 2022 – Høvik


Are you comfortable with complex problem solving, critical thinking and powered with creativity?

This could be the opportunity you are looking for!

DNV Summer Project will hire a cross-disciplinary team (like previous years) where you are invited to explore the concept:

Ocean Space Station

We want the team to design and prepare a floating infrastructure station / hub that could provide food, energy, fresh water, waste treatment and any other needed functionality to the world’s large urban areas in a sustainable and emission free manner, and at an economical scale.

We believe this would be the ultimate challenge within sustainability engineering.

You will be part of a project team consisting of eight 4th year master students from varying backgrounds, and you will utilize DNVs technical and commercial expertise to find a solution to the question above.


Position Qualifications

We are seeking a cross-disciplinary team of about eight engaged and dedicated students to help us investigate these opportunities. Your background and passion will typically be within marine / mechanical engineering, renewable energy, sustainability, biology, mathematics, data science, IT or business/economics. Of course, if you are a person people find it fun to work with, we would like to read your application!

If you want to take part in this exciting journey, this is your chance to develop and learn more about DNV and our services. Apply for this year’s summer project.
