More students choosing maritime courses

Things are moving in the right direction at the Technical University of Denmark, DTU, which is trying to get even more young people to pursue the university's maritime courses.

And it does look like more people have become interested this year, according to the numbers. The bachelor course "Basic Ship and Offshore Technology" has had 60 active students, and the course is now offered with enrollments in both summer and winter. And the bi-annual course offering could be one reason for the growing number of students, according to Ingrid Marie Vincent Andersen (photo), Head of DTU Maritime. Previously the course only enrolled students once a year, and last year only some 20 students participated.
