Maritime Engineering

The following study plan assumes start of study in September, such that 1. semester is fall, 2. semester is spring, 3. semester is fall and the thesis work is carried out in spring. It includes only one spring semester of courses.

The study plan is not mandatory but is a recommended study plan that fulfills the requirements. All other study plans also have to fulfill the requirements, including maximum 2 years of study for obtaining 120 ECTS.

Ships, offshore wind turbines, wave energy converters, and aquaculture facilities are all engineered structures operating in the open ocean. The discipline provides methods to design, construct, test, and operate these important structures in the most challenging of operating environments - the sea. The focus is to develop safe, cost-effective, and efficient structures, that have minimal adverse impacts on the local and global environments. Sustainability, in its broadest sense, is therefore something that is constantly pursued.
