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.
