Degree: Master of Science (two years) in Environmental Science

Science for Sustainable Development is a two-year interdisciplinary master's programme. It consists of theoretical and empirical studies in the natural, social and technological sciences that relate to societal and environmental issues of global concern, such as climate change and energy and water resources management.

Issues of sustainability are inherently complex and constantly changing. It is therefore crucial to address these issues in an interdisciplinary way. Courses are designed to give a deeper knowledge in relevant fields, and at the same time widen the students’ perspective on questions and challenges related to sustainable development. Students also learn how to use relevant analytical tools.

Climate science and policy is one important focus of the programme, since successful mitigation of, and adaptation to, climate change are closely linked to the possibilities of achieving sustainable development. As mitigation and adaptation possibilities are linked to energy and water resources management, these are another two important foci of the programme.

Environmental, social and economic aspects - the three ‘pillars’ of sustainability - of the energy and water resources sectors, as well as interlinkages between these, are studied also in historical contexts other than climate change, such as demographic, political and technological change, production of scientific knowledge and economic globalisation. The programme also draws on recent research results and analytical frameworks from the field of science and technology studies.

An individual student project, the master’s thesis, is an important part of the programme, allowing students to choose the area within which to develop expertise based on interest and with support from ongoing relevant research.

The programme aims to prepare students for work with sustainable development issues in international and national agencies, universities, municipalities, non-governmental organisations and international corporations. The programme should also make the student eligible for doctoral programmes in related fields.

As an international programme, the master’s programme in Science for Sustainable Development co-operates with similar programmes at universities in other countries, and offers the students the opportunity to study for one semester at one of these universities.

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.
