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?"


Ocean Space Station

The topic for 2022 will be “Ocean Space Station” where 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.

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 are not a fourth year master student - take a look at all the other summer jobs we offer in 2022. Perhaps you can find something that's a better fit for you?

DNV Summer Project 2022

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).
