This course was developed in response to the demand for design engineers who can design and assess new ships and offshore structures.
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 Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), a leading institution in Scotland, offers excellent teaching and research facilities, which will expand your career opportunities in naval architecture, marine, offshore oil and gas industries.
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 upper second class BEng Honours degree. or equivalent overseas qualification.
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.
