Local Unit & Position Description

Are you comfortable with complex problem solving, critical thinking and fueled by creativity? This could be the opportunity you are looking for!


DNV's Summer Project will hire a cross-disciplinary team (like previous years) where you are invited to explore Cyber Security.


We want the team to design a concept for detection and response to cyber-attacks for a safety critical asset (ship, floating infrastructure, industry plant, supply chain, etc). You'll also explore how cyber-attacks can be identified using digital technologies and how can the asset can be safely operated while being compromised. The concept should include also aspects related to business implications, communication to stakeholders, levels of escalations inside the organisation, etc.

Position Qualifications

We are seeking a cross-disciplinary team of about eight engaged and dedicated students to help us investigate these opportunities. Your background and passion will typically be within cyber security, computer science and cybernetics, marine / mechanical engineering, renewable energy, sustainability, mathematics, data science, IT or business/economic, and, 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. Apply for this year’s summer project.

  • Open-minded and curious
  • Self-driven and willing to share
  • Flexible and service-minded
  • Structured and systematic
  • Analytical
  • Able to work both individually and in teams
