Course content

This Master's course aims to educate future engineers who specialise in fluid mechanics, specifically in the unique offshore, coastal and built environments.

You will gain hands-on experience with access to our world class Hydrodynamics Laboratory to perform and observe experimental investigations.

Our Engineering Fluid Mechanics for the Offshore, Coastal and Built Environments provides training to a new generation of Engineers in Fluid Mechanics.

The course is both theoretical and practical, with a strong design component to ensure practical knowledge of the discipline.

There are pre-session modules in Mathematics and the specialist software Matlab, ensuring all students have a solid understanding of the fundamentals.

Once the fundamentals have been covered you move onto in-depth modules in modelling, transport, computation, coastal processes and energy systems.

You will complete a research project in a relevant area of your choice, ensuring you can produce an in-depth written piece on a topic suiting your personal interests or future career intentions.
