LRK is established in 1947 and today it has more than 70 members. LRK is managed by the "board", which consists of 12 persons. LRK's main goal is to take care of students social contacts to University and Finnish shipbuilding industry. LRK also arranges many kinds of activities for students around year, such as excursions in Finland. Over the years LRK has also arranged many excursions to foreign countries. Generally LRK is well known for its good spirit, active members and well arranged events. LRK has also good contacts to many graduated students, who yet have leaved University behind.

Föreningen Chalmers Skeppsbyggare(FCS) or the Chalmers Naval Architecture Students Union, is an association which represents the students’ interest on top of what is performed through the University and the Department. Started in 1887, FCS has long traditions, including the Nåväl-fête, table hockey tournaments and an annual Christmas party, as well as the yearly attendance to NTHS. FCS also has strong connections to both industry and its alumni, primarily through the Chalmers naval alumni organisation GfCS.
Chalmers is a university of technology with solid roots in the sciences. Our inspiration lies in the joy of discovery and the desire to learn. Our aim is to make an active contribution to sustainable development, both in Sweden and beyond. Chalmers was founded in 1829. The university is named after the major benefactor, William Chalmers, one of the directors of the successful Swedish East India Company in Göteborg. The first president was the industrialist Carl Palmstedt. The link with industry and commerce has therefore been natural from the very beginning. Today Chalmers houses about 10 000 students. The masters programme in Naval Archtecture & Ocean Engineering is a descendant of the Gothenburg Shipbuilders School, started in 1793 by Fredrik af Chapman, the world's first naval architect. The Shipbuilders School joined Chalmers in 1887. FCS was started that same year.
Mannhullet is a student society for Marine Technology students, and is one of the oldest societies (founded 31 January 1917) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The society consists of many committed students who like to arrange or participate in events for the society or the different subgroups of the society; the theatre group MIT, the hike group COMA and the Marine Football Club are just three of nine subgroups.
Marine Technology is one of eighteen MSc-level engineer programs at NTNU. The programs last for 5 years. The first two years are more or less general for all the graduate engineer programs, and the courses the first two years are basic courses in mathematics, physics and mechanics together with basic marine subjects at the Department of Marine Technology. In the third year one chooses their area of expertise, marine structures or marine systems, and in the fourth year further specialisation areas are chosen. The last semester, second half of the 5th year, is dedicated to writing the final master thesis. The marine industry is very important in Norway and the Marine Technology Centre in Trondheim is one of the biggest research and education centres in the western world.
Nul-Kryds is an union for engineering students specialising in maritime technology at the Technical University of Denmark. The purpose of the union is to promote both the social and academic interests of the members. This is done by working for a positive social and professional study environment. And by establishing and maintaining relationships between the maritime engineering students at DTU and the rest of our Nordic student colleagues as well as the Danish maritime industry. We do so by hosting a variety of different events, such as company presentations at DTU, company visits, excursions, social events and of course participating in the yearly NTHS congress.
Nul-Kryds was founded in 1947 and remains an independent organisation driven by volunteering students. Over the time many traditions have developed and different activities come and go. Traditional annual events include, in addition to the NTHS congress, the Martha summer party and the christmas lunch. In the last years the union has also participated in activities aimed at increasing awareness and interest in the maritime field in cooperation with DTU and the Danish Shipowners’ Association.
The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is ranked among the foremost technical universities in Europe. DTU is located north of Copenhagen and is the only university in Denmark having a specialised Naval Architecture education. Degrees in naval architecture are available at B.Eng. and M.Sc. level.
