A course for maritime professionals, designed and taught by maritime professionals from industry and academia.

Who is it for?

The course is designed for people who wish to make a career in the marine and offshore industries and who have either developed some experience in industry, maritime or otherwise, or have a sound academic basis or skills upon which to build.

During the course, in addition to gaining an understanding of the underlying principles upon which the industry is based, students will also gain confidence in the interpersonal and international cultural skills which are essential to senior roles in the maritime industries.

Objectives

The Maritime Operations and Management course is designed for existing professionals serving in the industry as well as those looking for a career within the maritime, offshore and sea transport industries. For those already within the industry applicants are likely to have a responsible sea-going or middle-management position. Alternatively, new entrants to the industry are likely to have attained a first degree in a related technical or management subject.

This modular course is focused towards giving students the necessary knowledge and skills to help them achieve high levels of attainment in their careers in the maritime and offshore industries. Indeed, many former students on this course have now reached board level appointments in their various companies.

The course takes place in Piraeus, Greece, offering the experience of studying at the esteemed Hellenic Lloyd's Register. You will have access to our online resources as well as the prestigious Kaiti Laskaridis Library collection during your study.

Placements

Students may undertake short placements of normally one to two weeks, if they wish. These are normally undertaken with shipping and insurance companies.

This activity does give the student some further understanding of the industry, if they have no previous industry experience.

Teaching and learning

The course is taught by some 12 lecturers who come from academia and industry. These are supported by guest lecturers drawn from various parts of the marine industry.

Assessment

Each subject has coursework associated with it and this normally comprises two essays which probe the student's abilities for critical analysis. Examinations are held twice per year with 3 subjects examined in the spring and the remainder in autumn. To pass the student must gain 50% in each of the coursework and examination elements.

The project is a major piece of work which results in a dissertation on a chosen subject. This is examined by the dissertation content and viva-voce examination.

Modules

The Maritime Operations and Management course is a distance learning option of the long standing course taught in London. The course is taught in Piraeus by the same lecturers as in London and adheres to the same syllabus and is overseen by the same External Examiner. Contact hours in Piraeus are the same as in London.

The course comprises eight taught modules: six compulsory and two elective to suit the student’s needs and future career aspirations. Outside of the block taught module students are expected to read around the subjects developed in the lectures, undertake coursework and prepare for examinations in the compulsory subjects.

This 18 month course is taught at weekends (spaced out during the period of the course) to enable students to meet employment or other commitments.

Completion of modules and examinations will lead to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma. Alternatively, if in addition, a project followed by a dissertation is undertaken by a student, this will lead to the award of a Master’s degree.

Core modules are all taught in Greece. With regards to the elective modules, two are offered in Piraeus to enable the course to be wholly completed in Greece. These electives are Marketing of Marine Services and Risk Management. However, if a student prefers any of the other elective modules, they can be taken but that would require attendance in London.

Core modules
-Maritime economics and finance (15 credits)
-Maritime law (15 credits)
-Maritime operations (15 credits)
-Maritime management (15 credits)
-Maritime technology (15 credits)
-Maritime environmental issues (15 credits)

Elective modules
-Marketing of marine services (15 credits)
-Strategic planning for ports and shipping business (15 credits)
-Security studies (15 credits)
-Conceptual ship design (15 credits)
-Risk management (15 credits)
-Offshore technology (15 credits)

Career prospects

The course is designed to lead graduates into a variety of career paths, depending upon their interests, within the marine industry. When they reach the higher echelons of organisations, then the all-embracing nature of the studies in this course help them to take wide management perspectives of problems facing their companies or organisations.

It is anticipated that students, if they are not already in employment, upon graduating will find employment within the maritime industries, with some even offered jobs prior to graduation. These employment opportunities are likely to be either in the middle or higher management areas. For those with little prior experience in the industry, passing out from the course will place them on paths leading towards employment at higher levels within the industry.

This MSc is based at our ORKNEY CAMPUS in the far north of Scotland. A unique opportunity to study a live marine environment.

Marine planning, including spatial planning, is a fast developing discipline of global interest with excellent employment prospects. Ambition to create jobs and growth in the ‘Blue Economy’ is made real by new technologies giving access to the wealth of resources in the oceans and seas. New approaches are needed to govern the interactions among marine industries while maintaining the aspiration for healthy seas and the conservation of ecosystems. Adaptation to the effects of climate change adds to the importance of marine planning as an essential tool in marine management.

The MSc in Marine Planning for Sustainable Development is based at the Orkney Campus but is available also at the Edinburgh Campus. Orkney is a global centre for marine energy research and development. A unique concentration of marine expertise and activity provides students with unparalleled access to key participants in the sustainable development and planning of marine industries.
