Climate change and geopolitical developments are making renewable energies the focus of future energy supply.
Due to the large energy potential of wind and waves, renewable energies play a special role in the offshore sector. Offshore wind energy will follow a steep expansion path and develop into an important pillar of the energy transition. At the same time, it is flanked by the increased use of wave and tidal energy.
Above all, offshore means challenging environmental conditions that the systems have to withstand. Graduates of the 'Renewable Offshore Energies' course develop innovative solutions to enable safe and economical operation of these climate-neutral energy producers.
The six-semester bachelor’s program offers future-oriented training based on a broad mechanical and shipbuilding engineering education. Graduates master the offshore language, but at the same time are qualified to work in general mechanical engineering and shipbuilding.
The course combines content from mechanical engineering and shipbuilding studies and teaches the skills required to work as an engineer in an offshore environment. The course offers a solid education as an engineer and optimally prepares you for a job in the offshore sector.
In the first semesters, the mathematical and scientific basics as well as engineering knowledge are taught according to the curriculum. In addition to the technical modules, interdisciplinary modules are offered from the 3rd semester that prepare for work in international teams. These include social skills (soft skills), technical English, business administration and law as well as project management.
The offshore-specific knowledge can be selected from a wide range of elective modules according to your own focus:
- Introduction to offshore wind energy technology
- Loads on offshore structures
- Geotechnical and structural fundamentals, weather and climate
- Planning, construction and foundation of offshore structures
