Why this course?

This course was developed response to the demand for design engineers who can design and assess new ships and offshore structures.

This programme is designed for graduate engineers in naval architecture, offshore engineering, mechanical engineering and other related disciplines.

You'll be introduced to ultimate strength, fatigue and design concepts for structural components of ships and offshore floating systems. You'll also gain the knowledge of material behaviour together with factors influencing the dynamic behaviour of offshore installations.

The Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), a leading institution in Scotland, offers excellent teaching and research facilities in Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine engineering, which expands your career opportunities in naval architecture, marine, offshore oil and gas industry.

See the website https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/shipoffshorestructures/

You'll study

Your course is made up of three components:
- instructional modules
- group project
- individual project (MSc only)

- Group project
You’ll be part of a group of three to five people in ‘consultant teams’ for 10 weeks addressing a practical engineering problem. You’ll then have the opportunity to present the report to a panel of industrial experts.
This project will enhance your team working and communication skills. It also provides valuable access to industrial contacts.
It will give you a good understanding of all aspects of research work. In addition, the technological study must be accompanied by survey of the relevance and applicability of the findings to the maritime industries at large.
You'll learn efficient ways to gather information, to distribute workload and to delegate amongst the group, to analyse their results and to appreciate the broader implications of the whole project. In-depth technological studies will be accompanied by increasingly important competence in managerial skills, quality assurance and a sound appreciation of the economic, political, social and environmental issues crucial to professional success.

- Individual project (MSc only)
MSc students will take on an individual dissertation on a topic of their own interest. The aim of the individual project is to develop your research skills and to combine many of aspects learned from other modules within a specific topic. This will be achieved by you carrying out work into a particular topic relating to your chosen theme and preparing a dissertation.

Do you have a passion for naval architecture and dream of designing the next generation of superyachts? Southampton Solent’s unique superyacht design master’s programme – the only one of its kind the UK – blends naval architecture and structural design with management skills to help provide you with essential career-boosting skills.

The course concentrates on sailing and motor yachts over 24 metres in length, and is intended not just for naval architects and students of yacht design, but also now provides suitably qualified marine engineers and certified deck officers with experience of operating superyachts the opportunity to develop their qualifications, where traditionally the career path for yacht officers has not enabled them to progress onto pure naval architecture degrees. The blend of naval architecture (for which sea-going officers will have underpinning knowledge), management and structural design will enable students from these backgrounds to develop their knowledge and understanding, and introduce new and relevant material and subjects for master’s level study.

Course delivery is based on ‘hands-on’ active learning, with an emphasis on developing students’ analytical and problem-solving skills, as well as gaining the appropriate knowledge to tackle an individual design or analysis project. Students benefit from strong industry links built through the University’s highly-regarded yacht engineering undergraduate degrees, as well as experienced teaching staff with industrial and research experience.

Students also have the opportunity to work on ‘real world’ assignments, and to use appropriate experience as a basis for project work. Where possible, ‘real world’ briefs will also be used, and industry guests will be asked to give feedback on work when appropriate. Students on the course with industry experience and/or sponsorship will be asked to incorporate elements of their work in their project.

The course concludes with a final design project where students are able to develop their own design, or investigate aspects of a design. Students will have the opportunity to design, build and test models to use in the towing tank, and will also benefit from access to the CAD suite equipped with industry-standard software to develop and analyse hulls, structure, superstructure and internal designs. 

What does this course lead to?

This course can lead to careers in the superyacht industry, such as naval architect, designer, production manager, stylist or systems engineer.

Who is this course for?

This unique master’s programme is perfect for appropriately qualified naval architects or recent yacht engineering graduates. The course is also open to applications from master mariners and chief engineers with relevant experience.

What you will study

  • Naval Architecture (15 credits)
  • Superyacht Design Processes (30 credits)
  • Superyacht Technology (15 credits)
  • Superyacht Design Analysis (15 credits)
  • Superyacht Design Realisation (30 credits)
  • Superyacht Project Management (15 credits)
  • Project (60 credits)

Facilities

To aid learning, students have full access to the University’s specialist yacht engineering and design facilities, including our composite construction workshop, yacht drawing office and modern CAD office, which is equipped with the latest commercial marine design and production software. Students also have access to a fully-equipped specialist composite laboratory and materials testing laboratory, a 60m towing tank and static four-metre stability tank.

Your future

Students may wish to progress their careers with a PhD in the maritime field.

Industry links

The course team have extensive links with industry, with companies such as Lloyds Register, QinetiQ, Gurit, Solent Refit, and Alicat, through their own experience and the network of graduates from the yacht engineering undergraduate courses.

Solent University’s yacht engineering students have benefitted from recent guest lectures from Francesco Chivioli, Sunseeker; Tommasso Cigliano ,Humphries Yacht Design; Ben Mancini, X-Yachts; John Haynes, Shock Mitigation Ltd; and independent yacht designer, Joe Brierley.

Student presentations have also previously been assessed by Allan Foot, director of Solent Refit Ltd.
