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 cover the core subjects of naval architecture and provide you with an in-depth knowledge of the design and analysis of marine craft and structures within the marine environment. Our course is suitable for graduates of engineering, mathematics and physical sciences. You will not be required to know prior specialised knowledge of the discipline, 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; Advances in Ship Resistance and Propulsion; Marine Safety and Environmental Engineering; Marine Structures in Fluids; Marine Law and Management
Optional modules include: Finite Element Analysis in Solid Mechanics; Yacht and High Performance Craft; Applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics; Numerical Methods; Ship Manoeuvring and Control; Marine Hydrodynamics; Marine Structures; Design Search and Optimisation; Failure of Materials and Components; Renewable Energy from Environmental Flows; Offshore Engineering and Analysis
