PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

Galway’s identity is intertwined with the coast. The Discipline of Geography, with strong links with The Ryan Institute which identifies marine and coastal processes as a Priority Research Area, is delighted to offer a brand new structured postgraduate programme in NUIG. This programme is designed to train skilled personnel, who can advise on, organise and regulate an informed development of coastal and marine resources and activities in Ireland, the European Union and worldwide. Ireland’s coastal and marine environments are a vital natural resource. This value is reflected in a broad range of current EU directives and strategies aimed at taking full advantage of these resources while also enhancing our natural environments. The Irish Government has recently launched an integrated plan (Our Ocean Wealth), seeking to put into operation these EU policies for our coastal and marine resources. While rapid growth is expected as these new plans come into action, they are not without risks. A recent report by the Marine Institute outlined some challenges: a need to develop our environmental understanding; the challenge posed by climate change; protecting biodiversity; enhancing monitoring capability; greater integration of science, management and advice. The key to achieving the true sustainable development of our coastal and marine resources may be through new educational programmes. On the one hand, facilitating existing managers and planners through targeted learning in this expanding field, while on the other hand, training our current students to be the future decision-makers in these coastal and marine environments.

This is a highly opportune time for an MSc in Coastal and Marine Environments: physical processes, policy and practice. This MSc programme, theoretically informed and with a strong field-based and applied focus, is offered in direct response to newly emerging discourses on the long term health of coastal and marine environments. It seeks to challenge and facilitate students to engage with but go beyond established scientific conceptual and theoretical perspectives, engage new ways of understanding the complexities of our evolving physical coastal and marine environments, and develop critical insights that can support policy and practice in sustaining these increasingly vulnerable environments.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

The MSc in Coastal and Marine Environments is a full-time postgraduate course delivered over 3 semesters (12 months). The programme was devised by a team of academics from the Discipline of Geography who have been involved in priority EU-funded and US National Science Foundation (NSF) research on contemporary and future challenges facing coastal and marine areas, including the ANCORIM (Atlantic Network for Coastal Risk Management) (INTERREG) and MARNET (Marine Atlantic Regions Network) (FP7) projects, as well as local and national-level projects on the same. The team is engaged in a broad range of scientific investigation of the physical environment, with an excellent international publication record. Students will become active members of ongoing research programmes and will learn the research and publication process.

There is a strong focus on the formulation of coastal and marine policies and strategies; the identity and role of stakeholders; the nature and impact of local, national and European governance; and the historic and contemporary approaches used to understand the physical processes that control the characteristics of our coast. Development of skills is supported by a significant focus on practical and field-based learning, including short field courses in Ireland and work placements.

It is directed at graduates from Geography, Natural Sciences and other related disciplines in the social and natural sciences, and at professionals in the field who are interested in furthering their knowledge of coastal and marine environments. Students will be required to conduct socially relevant research that addresses the roles of agencies and policy structures in coastal and marine environments.

CAREER OPPORTUNTIES

With coastal and marine resources increasingly promoted as being central to revitalising the Irish economy, the coming years will require well-informed and educated leaders who understand the complexities of the interaction between the economy and health of these environments. This, added to the broader national and European focus on the coastal zone and the urgent need for more Higher Education courses which recognise the renewed importance of sustainability of coastal and marine activities and the multifunctional facets of these areas, should present graduates of this course with opportunities across various fields ( coastal and marine science, environmental consultancy, local/regional/state management agencies, government and policy institute research, politics and governance of the environment, sustainable energy, research laboratories and programmes, teaching, heritage, tourism, etc.). The work placement programme will aid in professional development and offer links with potential employers, giving our students realistic and desirable career opportunities, and built-in work experience upon graduation.

PhD Entry: the MSc Programme can be used as a platform for potential doctoral PhD candidates for research programmes in Geography and our partners in NUIG, especially the Ryan Institute, and abroad. This will encourage the growth and visibility, at home and abroad, of the coastal and marine priority theme research clusters in NUIG.

The conservation of endangered marine mammal species and concordant management of marine resources, have gained prominent positions in public news items and the attention of both governmental and non-governmental agencies. The need to know more about the lives and behaviours of marine mammals, driven by many agendas, coincides with a period in which improving technology is facilitating novel ways to probe the marine environment, and learn more about its inhabitants. As a result, the rapidly developing, and highly topical, discipline of marine mammal science is an area in which many excellent biology graduates seek to conduct research.

The MSc in Marine Mammal Science is the only research oriented Masters degree in this popular subject worldwide. It is intended to prepare students fully for a professional career involved with the research into and conservation of marine mammals. It is, first and foremost, a programme in quantitative marine ecology and animal behaviour. The programme is led by members of the world-renowned NERC Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU) and draws on the wider marine expertise within the Scottish Oceans Institute (SOI).

Research Project (dissertation)

The research project takes place during the whole year with a focus period from May to August and contributes one third of the total mark for the MSc. The project is assessed by submission of a research proposal, a written dissertation and a poster presentation. The topic and plan for the project will be developed by the student in collaboration with one or more academic supervisors at SMRU / St Andrews.

Marine Mammal Science

Whether because of their sheer size, complex behaviour, intriguing social structures or historic persecution, marine mammals in particular have come to symbolise issues in marine ecology. Conservation of endangered marine mammal species and management of their populations, especially those interacting with the human food chain, often attain prominent positions in the news, and in the attentions of both governmental and non-governmental agencies.

The need to know more about the lives and behaviours of marine mammals, driven by many agendas, coincides with a period in which improving technology is making it increasingly possible for us to probe the marine environment, and learn more about its inhabitants.

As a result, the rapidly developing, and highly topical, discipline of marine mammal science is an area in which many excellent biology graduates seek to conduct research.

A brand new, one of its kind qualification for those seeking specialist skills in the design and construction of temporary works.

Who is it for?

This MSc degree is aimed at graduates with at least two years of practical experience in construction; however, more recent graduates with a good appreciation of construction processes will also benefit.

Having achieved a firm grounding in engineering you may be keen to develop your skills as a practical engineer working on site or enhance design skills if you are engaged in permanent works design.

Objectives

The course provides the following:
-An introduction to statutory obligations, management methods and special design considerations for temporary works.
-Design of structures used in and for temporary works, their construction and monitoring.
-Design of geotechnical temporary works and processes, including groundwater control and ground investigation.
-Design of temporary works for marine construction, in particular floating structures and the effect of waves and varying water levels.
-The use of plant in temporary works and the provision of appropriate working platforms and access.
-Demolition and alteration of structures, including the disposal/reuse of construction waste.

Teaching and learning

The learning and teaching approach for the course encompasses a range of methods which support active learning including lectures, workshops, group work, case studies, problem-based learning, presentations and peer review.

Workshops, group work, case studies and problem-based learning will be used to build your ability to critically review and assess options for design and assessment of temporary works. Your learning will be supported by the online learning environment Moodle, which will provide resources for independent learning, such as further reading, links to wider sources of information and quizzes for self-assessment.

All modules involve undertaking a certain number of individual and/or group assignments (coursework) during the teaching terms, as well as comprehensive final examinations.

Part-time students are expected to complete all the modules within the two-year period. The teaching periods are structured to deliver core modules in a sequence, which permits engagement by part-time students alongside full-time students. The project is undertaken by part-time students in the second year.

Teaching normally takes place on two full days per week, although there may be some variations to accommodate practical exercises and site visits. In addition, there is an introduction week at the start of the programme each year which is attended by all full and part-time students.

This method of delivery is designed to accommodate students working full-time within reasonable commuting distance of City, University of London, as well as to full-time students, by concentrating tuition into two days per week on average, and encouraging flexibility for independent study.

Modules

Temporary works refers to works enabling the construction of, protection, support or provision of access to permanent works which might or might not remain in place at the completion of a construction project. Examples of temporary works include structures such as gantries for heavy plant, materials or accommodation as well as supports for partially-completed or partially-dismantled structures, excavations and accesses. The course delivery and content is actively supported by the Temporary Works Forum (TWf), which promotes best practice within the UK construction industry and sponsors the Centre of Excellence in Temporary Works and Construction Method Engineering at City, University of London. The course content has been developed in collaboration with the TWf membership and TWf members will contribute to lectures and design exercises.

The course addresses the regulatory background to temporary works for construction, the design of geotechnical, structural and marine temporary works, demolition, plant, safe working methods and access works. You will gain both the technical understanding to undertake safe but cost-effective designs for a full range of temporary works and a good understanding of the wide range of plant and techniques that can be employed.

The programme will be delivered by industry experts providing insights into current practice in temporary works and academic members of staff experienced in the theory underlying the design methods employed. There will be visits to operational sites and practical exercises to provide opportunities to experience decision-making in the field, combined with group sessions to develop your knowledge further through active engagement. This will also require you to present your work occasionally, participate in peer review sessions and work in teams.

The course consists of eight taught modules and a project. The project is a major individual research exercise on a topic relevant to temporary works and construction method engineering. The main outcome of the project is a written report (dissertation).

Taught modules - the Temporary Works and Construction Method Engineering MSc comprises 180 credits, with 60 credits awarded to the project. Attendance is required to obtain 120 credits by studying all of the taught modules.

The taught modules address the following topics:
-An introduction to statutory obligations, management methods and special design considerations for temporary works.
-Design of structures used in and for temporary works, their construction and monitoring.
-Design of geotechnical temporary works and processes, including groundwater control and ground investigation.
-Design of temporary works for marine construction, in particular floating structures and the effect of waves and varying water levels.
-The use of plant in temporary works and the provision of appropriate working platforms and access.
-Demolition and alteration of structures, including the disposal/reuse of construction waste.

Project - the topics/titles for the major project can be chosen from:
-A list suggested by the lecturers of the course.
-Your own ideas/initiatives.
-Where applicable, by your sponsoring company/industrial partner.

Our collaboration with members of the TWf means that many of the topics offered will relate to problems of current interest to industry and will be co-supervised by industry organisations.

Career prospects

Temporary works are an important aspect of most construction projects. Consequently, a qualification in this field will have widespread application across all civil engineering disciplines, whether you are working as an on-site engineer or as a design office engineer. You could also go into the research arena conducting innovative research in the area of temporary works.

Ships transport large quantities of raw material and manufactured goods around the world, making the shipping industry the hub of the global economy. Today, developing this transport system and turning shipping into the most efficient, safe and environmental-friendly means of transportation is a great engineering challenge. In addition, there is also a challenge in developing and designing structures required in the emerging field of ocean energy. This International Master’s Programme will give you a solid base for a future professional career in these fields of engineering.

Programme description

We offer an internationally attractive and competitive education within conception, planning, design and analysis of large marine structures considering hydromechanics and strength through a holistic approach. The programme focuses on ships and offshore structures, but is equally attractive for students with a general interest in strength- and hydrodynamic analysis and systems engineering.

Future challenges lie in developing and designing more energy efficient ships and floating and fixed structures within the emerging field of ocean energy, e.g. wind- wave and tidal power, and in developing the shipping industry towards a more sustainable future.

As a student you will gain skills and knowledge on how to weigh the contradicting requirements in the design of ships and offshore structures using systems thinking and systems engineering tools. You will be able to propose new concepts and designs to meet transport needs and limitations, carry out strength analyses with respect to static and fatigue strength, design hulls with respect to hydrodynamic requirements and choose the appropriate machinery and propulsion equipment.

Specialised courses within these areas come together in the Marine Design Project, where you develop technical solutions to meet specific design objectives for shipping or the offshore energy field.

The Master’s programme in Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering at Chalmers takes part in the joint programme Nordic Master in Maritime Engineering. This gives you the opportunity to choose between five universities that are all highly specialised and technologically advanced, and receive a double degree.

Educational methods

Besides traditional lectures you will take part in team based projects that are created from real life business case scenarios, the Marine Design Project is one example. The aim is to create an initial design of a ship or offshore structure taking the contradicting requirements of these products into account.
