Upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent) or above, in marine engineering, naval architecture, ship science, aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, general engineering, electrical engineering, physics or mathematics. We may also consider applicants with undergraduate degrees in oceanography or architecture, or applicants from marine academies.
Months of entry
Our MSc programme will focus on teaching you computational techniques, their applications in predictions of fluid behaviour and the interactions with structure. Our course is suitable for graduates of engineering, mathematics and physical sciences. 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
