This programme is designed for graduate engineers or those from related disciplines who wish to acquire advanced knowledge on ship and offshore technologies. The course is offered jointly between the University of Strathclyde and Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) in Germany, and the awards are made in the name of the two universities.

In groups of 3 to 5, students work in ‘consultant teams’ for ten weeks on a practical engineering problem, mirroring how they might work in industry. To conclude their project, students have the opportunity to present their report to a panel of industrial experts. This learning method provides students with much sought after teamworking and communication skills, plus valuable industrial contact.
The first year will be studied at University of Strathclyde
In the interim period between the end of the courses at University of Strathclyde (April/May) and the start of the courses at Hamburg University of Technology (October), the students will perform their research project, move to Hamburg and participate there in an intensive German language course. The latter is offered as 4-weeks summer school in August and alternatively as 3-weeks course in October just before the lectures start.
The moving date can be chosen by the student depending on the research project, which may be supervised in conjunction with a TUHH professor, and other personal circumstances.
The lectures at Hamburg University of Technology are held in English between October and February, followed by an examination period after the 3rd semester between February and March. The 4th semester is almost exclusively devoted to the Master Thesis which can be supervised by professors from both universities. The 4th semester terminates by end September.
MSc: Two Years, full-time
MSc: BEng or BSc in marine or marine-related engineering subject with second-class Honours or equivalent qualification. Applicants with other qualifications will be considered on an individual basis.
There are growing opportunities for graduates from this MSc programme to work in oil and gas companies, shipbuilding companies, including yards building oceangoing, inland and naval vessels, repairs and conversions, and boats and yachts, classification societies, firms specialising in riser and mooring analysis and marine consultancies.
