Marine Technology is all about the design of ships. A large ship is an independently functioning village and at the same time one of the largest machines we know. The Bachelor’s degree programme in Marine Technology will teach you to design a ship, with all the necessary amenities and facilities. However, a marine engineer has many other skills as well. The optimisation of the shape of the hull and the ship’s construction, the design of offshore platforms and the analysis of the construction process will also be covered.
The Marine Technology degree programme consists mainly of mathematics, physics and typical subject-related courses. Lectures and tutorials are interspersed with laboratory courses and projects in which you make calculations and apply these to practical situations. These projects are geared to teach you how to collaborate, present and report, which are indispensable in your later work. You will spend about seventy per cent of your time attending lectures, tutorials, laboratory courses and instruction as well as carrying out self-study. For the remaining thirty per cent, you will work on projects in a group of about eight students. Once you have completed your Bachelor’s degree programme, you can transfer to the Master’s degree programme in Marine Technology and choose for either the Science track or the Design, Production and Operation track. Would you prefer to transfer to a different Master’s programme? If so, you can also choose Offshore & Dredging Engineering or a Master’s in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Technology or Civil Engineering.
