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.
