I have since 1992 experience within management, fabrication, analysis and design of main, secondary and outfitting offshore steel structures according to EN, NORSOK, DnV and ISO standards. That includes 5 years’ experience within design of steel bridges/safety barriers according to NS3472 and 3 years’ experience with development and support of subsea Manifold structures designed according to ISO standards as Department Manager for GE Oil&Gas team in Trondheim. Support function for use of analysis software during among others, Troll oil, Troll gas (A) and Njord detail engineering phase in Aker Engineering as a member of the FASTRUDL software development team. Since august 2015 I have teached in “Design of Ocean Space Structures” and 25 student projects and 24000 student hours annually through a problem based subject.

Software skills

I have experience into how to use the Sesam-package, Staad and Abaqus from the Oil&Gas industry. KOBOS in bridge design.

Currently I teach how to use SAP 2000 and Idea Statica in the subject “Design of Ocean Space Structures”. I teach in use of Tekla and I also use Archicad on other projects. I addition most of the calculation and are based on hand calculations, MathCAD and Excel.

Currently I do evaluation on waves, wind, current loads on how to do evaluations on this in fjords. There are some special software for that.

For CAD-software, I teach in use of Tekla-software. I have previously used PDMS only to get status from the model or to help draftsmen get correct information into the model. In bridge design, I used Autocad. I also sometimes use AutoCAD sometimes when I find that more efficient.

I still do some programming work using Fortran from time to time. I worked extensively with that from 1992 to 1999.


2004                      Master of Technology Management program (MBA) which is cooperation between Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration (NHH), National University of Singapore (NUS).

1991                      Master of Science, Norwegian Institute of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim.  Specializing within software development (FEM) and advanced structural analysis in order to do steel design
