College students from three different schools in the Ålesund region of Norway make familiarisation programme visit to Ulstein Group.

The students are participants in the “Motivational course”, a cooperation between ULSTEIN, STX OSV, Rolls-Royce Marine and NCE Maritime, whose  purpose is to motivate youths for engineering studies.

The Motivational Course has been arranged for 13 years, and results show that about 50% of the participants later choose to become engineers.



For four days, the students visit the cooperating companies, where they meet engineers and are challenged in creative problem solving related to the engineering area. In February they meet again for a follow-up through the Smallpeice Trust, England, an expert in these types of courses.
