Abstract

This article describes the outcome of a survey initiated by the Danish Maritime Fund (DMF).
The survey resulted in a report that describes the engineering competencies requested by the
Danish maritime industry. This is of interest since the desired competencies have changed in
the past one to two decades, where Denmark no longer has a considerable ship-building
industry. Furthermore, the DMF initiated report concludes that the demand for maritime
engineers in the industry is larger than the output. The report sets forth a series of
recommendations to the industry as well as the universities to enable meeting the demand for
maritime engineers in Denmark. The recommendations are outlined together with the work
commenced at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the University of Southern
Denmark (SDU) to follow up on the recommendations in the report.
