Maritime Operations and Management (MSc)


Course Description

MSc Maritime Operations and Management is designed for existing professionals serving both at sea and onshore, and those looking for a career within the maritime and sea transport industries. If you are within the industry, you are likely to already have a responsible sea-going or middle-management position. Alternatively if you are a new entrant, then you are likely to have attained a first degree in a related technical or management subject.

The core academic content of the course introduces a wide range of concepts and material and reinforces skills and experience, preparing students for employment in senior positions in the maritime sector. This course makes use of prestigious visiting speakers and takes advantage of the importance of London as an international maritime hub, through visits to outside marine-related organisations where possible.

The course is supported by the Honourable Company of Master Mariners and recognised by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology as satisfying the academic requirements to become a Chartered Marine Technologist (C.Mar.Tech).
