Months of entry
This programme focuses on computational techniques, their applications to the predictions of fluid behaviour, and its interactions with structure in the maritime environment. Prior specialised knowledge of the discipline isn’t necessary, as we will provide you with an introductory module to the fundamentals of Ship Science.
Compulsory modules include: Fundamentals of Ship Science; MSc Research Project; Applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics; Advances in Ship Resistance and Propulsion; Marine Hydrodynamics; Marine Safety and Environmental Engineering
Optional modules include: Finite Element Analysis in Solid Mechanics; Advanced Computational Methods I; Turbulence: Physics and Modelling; Flow Control; Ship Manoeuvring and Control; Marine Structures; Design Search and Optimisation; Offshore Engineering and Analysis; Marine Structures in Fluids.
