Aiming for a summer with DNV GL?

Our tips for you when applying for a summer job

We receive a lot of applications each summer, and therefore can only accept applications through our database iCIMS.

Summer students at Høvik 2015, writing and doing paper work

Applications for the 2021 IT summer jobs are open now, and before Christmas the other competencies we are looking for will be hired, "Engineering/tech summer jobs". 

Follow this link to apply. 

Make sure you have the following ready to upload:

  • Application letter
  • CV
  • Copy of transcripts
  • Testimonials (optional)

Follow the steps in iCIMS and make sure to send your application including the different uploads before the deadline:

IT Summer jobs 4 October 2020 23:59 CET; 

Engineering/tech summer jobs 15 February 2021 23:59 CET. 

You will be asked to tick off what area you would like to apply for:

  • Technical engineering
  • Scientific engineering
  • Computer Science /Information Technology
  • Business Administration/ Finance
  • Business Administration/ Human Resources


  • As we receive many applications from students with the same background of education, it could be smart to emphasize your area of interest when it comes to your study.
  • If you are approaching your master year (starting the 4th year of studies), you should tell us what courses you will take.
  • Remember to include keywords describing your field of interest/expertise (i.e. petroleum, hydrodynamics, computer science, business administration, finance, organizational psychology, mechanical, hull, ship design, material technology, mathematics, physics, etc.). 

This will be of help for our managers when they are looking through the many applications.

Experiences from previous summer students

I worked in a group project where we did the same tasks as DNV GL Maritime Advisory do for their customers. That included advanced grounding analysis, sloshing analysis using CFD (computational fluid dynamics) and comparing the response of different ships in waves. We also looked into ways of visualizing the results and had quite a big presentation after."

As a technical summer student you may participate in doing consequence analysis for i.e. different kind of rules through comparisons with existing rules and dimensions."

I was working in the department of Tankers and Dry Cargo. My main task there was to perform calculations of the cargo load case: “steel coils” for several vessels. I believe I did some other smaller tasks as well, but I can’t remember exactly what that was."

An IT student may work together with technical students, in i.e. Maritime, Oil & Gas, or Energy but with the focus of finding errors in the software used."

I had my summer job in the Marine Structure Department, in the group Environmental Loads and Response, and Hydrodynamic and Moorings (name of the section in 2013). The motivation of the summer intern was to find the maximum crest (bølgetopp) in the sea surface area beneath a platform during a real storm. If the crest is so high that it reaches up to the platform deck, it may damage the deck structure and it is therefore important to study.

I studied the maximum crest beneath three different platform models:

  • Jacket platform
  • Tension leg platform
  • Semisubmersible platform

This was performed by simulating second order waves and determining the largest wave beneath the platform decks. The simulations were further used in a real project in the section I worked."
