DNV Summer Project

Every summer DNV offers students a chance to be part of our exciting summer project at the Høvik campus. Perhaps participating in a summer project can be your starting point in DNV? 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

DNV puts a lot of effort and expertise into selecting an interesting topic that covers a broad scope of study areas for our annual summer project. This work is done by our own knowledgeable engineers and risk consultants.

Read a summer greeting from the students that were part of the 2019 summer project "How can we improve the way DNV handles requirements?"


The topic for 2024 has been decided;

How can seagrass protect underwater structures?

The industry is putting tons of crushed rock offshore every year to protect cables, structures and foundations from sediment transportation and scour. Examples are fixed and floating wind turbines, pipelines, artificial islands etc. Transportation costs are huge and so is also the CO2 footprint. An alternative solution for scour protection currently used in the market is frond mats consisting of plastic.

 

We would like the project team to design a new, environment-friendly concept for scour protection by use of e.g. seagrass or a product that is natural.

The concept should also look into how new digital solutions can increase predictability for the underwater structures by using predictable models combined with sensors.

Finally, the concept needs a proper business case to ensure that it can be realized. This would be including efficiencies relating to surveys and inspections, as well as more accurate lifetime assessments.

 

This is a highly multidisciplinary task and the topic is of high relevance both to DNV and the industry. Like previous years, we will be looking for curious students who like complex problem solving, critical thinking and are powered with creativity.


Your background and passion will typically be within hydrodynamics, geotechnics, marine biology, marine operations, environmental engineering, 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.

Real challenge – real learning

The summer project is organized during the summer months for students in their fourth year of a master’s degree programme. Each year we take on a number of students with varied cultural and academic backgrounds who will work intensively on the project for six weeks. The outcome of the project is a product developed by challenging each other’s ideas and building on each other’s strengths.

The students from previous years agreed that the weeks at the head office have given them an amazing summer and an unforgettable time.

They express gratitude towards DNV colleagues and external experts that enabled the realization of the project through always being available, positive and supportive.

The project starts with team building and technical presentations, as well as training in presentation skills. After six weeks working on the project, the team presents the result to the top management and colleagues at the office at Høvik (outside Oslo).
