This course was developed in response to the demand for design engineers who can design and assess new ships and offshore structures.
This programme is designed for graduate engineers in naval architecture, offshore engineering, mechanical engineering and other related disciplines.
You'll be introduced to ultimate strength, fatigue and design concepts for structural components of ships and offshore floating systems. You'll also gain the knowledge of material behaviour together with factors influencing the dynamic behaviour of offshore installations.
The course has three components as follows:
Instructional Modules; Group Project; Individual Project (MSc only).
You can exit at the end of 9 months with a PgDip Ship and Offshore Structures.
For the MSc, a first or second class BEng Honours degree in a relevant subject.
Applicants with marginally lower qualifications will be considered for the Postgraduate Diploma in the first instance. Applicants with other qualifications will be considered on an individual basis.
