invisible headline here if you need it

At Odense Maritime Technology, we are experiencing a steady increase in the number of projects in the area of ship design and that is why we are looking for a structural engineer.

You may have extensive experience in large steel structures with several years on your CV or you may be a newly graduated marine or mechanical engineer with a high professional level, the right ambitions, and a strong commitment that will enable you to develop to cover the necessary competences in OMT within a short time frame.

Odense Maritime Technology covers all the technical disciplines involved in the design and construction of naval ships, ferries, and merchant vessels, as well as various shipyard tasks. OMT has two offices in Denmark. One in the immediate vicinity of Odense Railway Station and one close to Copenhagen Central Station.

You will be part of the hull structure department which consists of both younger and older colleagues with great expertise in the field. OMT’s task portfolio ranges widely from small, limited retrofit and conversion projects to the design and planning of naval vessels, ferries, and merchant ships.

Your tasks
  • Development of concept and basis design of the structure of ships
  • Collaboration with customers on design requirements and functionality
  • Drafting of technical specifications for the hull structure
  • Performing calculations according to class rules
  • Performing FE calculations to document strength, vibration, and fatigue
  • Developing 3D design models of the hull structure of the ships
  • Preparing 2D class drawings for approval
  • Interaction with shipyard, shipowners, approving authorities, and class societies
  • Participation in cross-functional teams with colleagues from other disciplines

Expectations of your professional and personal qualifications

You have a degree in engineering and preferably experience with the design of large steel structures in the marine, offshore or possibly building sector.

The majority of our clients are foreign and you can expect varied travel activity. We also expect you to have a good command of written and spoken English.

Personally, it is important that you thrive in a dynamic environment where you are constantly faced with new challenges and daily decisions which often involve compromises. Of course, these can never compromise integrity, quality, and safety.

You have an interest in IT and are a proficient user of all of the Office suite, CAD and calculation systems.
