You should consider being part of the Ocean Young at HVL in Bergen in September, This is our arena for companies to engage with students within energy- and ocean technology.

Your company will get a chance to show students how and why you stand out as employers, and you will have a possibility to share your exciting projects.

While students on the other hand, have the unique opportunity to meet and get to know you – their potential employers, and explore potential BSc/MSc theses and internship possibilities.

Application surge

At the moment there is a surge in applications for studies related to energy- and subsea technology.

– Our bachelor’s degree in Ocean Technology is the big winner this year, with an increase of 28% in applicants. A new record!” says Tone Røkenes, assistant professor and student coordinator at HVL.

The competition for talented graduates is also on a rise according to Røkenes. Last year all students from the Department of Mechanical and Marine engineering who wanted to work in the industry could do so. And more and more students already have jobs secured six months before completing their degree.

– These examples are thanks to initiatives such as Ocean Young that aids in creating a pathway for seamless transition from academia to industry, explains Røkenes.
