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
In this MSc programme you will cover the design and structural analysis of offshore fixed and floating structures. We will give you an understanding of maritime robotics for oceanography, offshore exploitation and disaster response. Our course is suitable for graduates of engineering, mathematics and physical sciences. Prior specialised knowledge of the discipline is not required, 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; Marine Law and Management; Finite Element Analysis in Solid Mechanics; Marine Safety and Environmental Engineering; Offshore Engineering and Analysis; Marine Structures in Fluids; Maritime Robotics
Optional modules include: Applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics; Thermofluid Engineering for Low Carbon Energy; Advances in Ship Resistance and Propulsion; Design Search and Optimisation; Marine Hydrodynamics; Marine Structures; Renewable Energy from Environmental Flows; Ship Manoeuvring and Control
