The Nordic Master in Maritime Engineering is co-ordinated by the Technical University of Denmark, DTU Mechanical engineering, Section of Coastal, Maritime and Structural Engineering.

The implementation of the programme is overseen by a joint Programme Board, with two representatives from each university, one professor and one administrative representative. The Programme Board is chaired by DTU. The Programme Board can invite representatives of the Consortium universities who are not members of the Board to participate in individual tasks and projects. The Programme Board is responsible for ensuring that the teaching offered in the framework of the NMME programme is delivered of the highest academic standards. Any considerable changes implemented to the courses and modules of NMME programme must be submitted to the Programme Board for approval. The Programme Board will meet at least once a year.
