With almost 20 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity worldwide, and projected to increase fifteen-fold by 2040, the offshore wind energy market is booming, and it urgently needs qualified people to further succeed in being the leading sustainable energy source.
We offer a uniquely well-rounded, offshore wind-focused MSc, taught by staff having internationally leading expertise and track record in both wind turbines offshore engineering and electric and electronic engineering, unparalleled in the world.
This course is designed for ambitious graduates with a background in engineering, maths or physics who want to gain in-depth and industrially relevant knowledge in offshore wind energy.
The MSc course will be delivered by the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering (NAOME), and the Department of Electronic and Electric Engineering (EEE). There are six compulsory modules, a group project, and an individual project. The taught parts of the course will comprise 120 credits including a 40-credit group project. The taught part includes modules dealing with the following subjects:
- offshore wind, wave, and current modelling
- aerodynamic and hydrodynamic loads
- structural analysis and integrity assessment
- generators, power converters, and control systems
- risk and reliability engineering
- offshore wind farm Economics, Operation & Maintenance
