Marine- and Offshore Technology - Master's Degree Programme

Oceans cover more than 70% of the earth’s surface. However, those are still much unexplored. About 97% of the earth’s water is contained in oceans and seas all connected forming an enormous mass of water. Complex marine engineering becomes crucial when obtaining and discovering all the resources that the oceans can bring as for solving the different issues that can occur during this process.

MSc in Marine and Offshore Technology is designed to meet the growing demand for skilled professionals in the marine and offshore industry.

Students will gain detailed knowledge in designing, constructing, maintaining and removing of marine and offshore structures. Further, they will look into systems and operations related to installation by combining basic mechanical engineering subjects with marine technology.

Marine and Offshore Technology graduates will be equipped with the best theoretical and practical tools since we have some of the strongest academic staff in the world within this field.
