Thematic Network on Arctic Engineering

The Arctic Engineering Thematic Networks has focus on development of sustainable technologies through engineering that can improve quality of life and allow for development of natural resource in the North while minimizing the environment footprint of those technologies.


The goals of the Thematic Network is to

  • synergize the education on Arctic Engineering;
  • enhance international and interdisciplinary cooperation in research and education;
  • develop sustainable technologies through science and engineering.


Online courses:

TN in Arctic Engineering presented at the UArctic Congress 2018 about Virtual Mining Education.

The University of Alaska Anchorage offers many distance delivery courses available for UArctic students that support the education for mining industry.

The Lapland University of the Applied Sciences has developed opportunities for students to study mining related jobs in virtual environment.

Members of the Arctic Engineering Thematic Network attended the Hokkaido Summer Institute’s 2017 Regional Development and Natural Resources in Cold Climate course alongside the Thematic Network on Arctic Sustainable Arts and Design. The report from the course can be found here.
