Months of entry
The Naval Architecture MSc is designed to provide students with knowledge and skills in naval architecture theory, analysis and design procedures for both naval and merchant ships. The knowledge gained on the programme should enable graduates to be easily integrated into industrial ship design teams.
Direction and a significant portion of the teaching is carried out by staff seconded from the UK Ministry of Defence with recent experience of leading ship design teams.
Students benefit from the close association with both the defence and commercial marine sectors with many lectures delivered by industry and, in some cases, world-leading experts. Networking opportunities are further enhanced during the design reviews and final VIP presentations, where industry experts provide external challenge, advice and guidance to students while also taking the opportunity to talent-spot.
The large majority of students of this MSc continue directly to employment in the industry.
