Our Maritime Engineering Science masters covers the core subjects and in-depth knowledge of Maritime Engineering Science for both design and analysis of marine craft and structures within the marine environment.

The MSc Maritime Engineering Science is designed for graduates, or those similarly qualified, with an engineering, scientific or mathematical background, who desire to pursue a career in maritime sector. Students can choose from five themes, which aim to provide a wide range of specialist areas within the broad field of maritime engineering science.

Our Maritime Engineering Science masters covers the core subjects and in-depth knowledge of Maritime Engineering Science for both design and analysis of marine craft and structures within the marine environment.

It is designed for graduates, or similarly qualified, with an engineering, scientific or mathematical background, who desire to pursue a career in maritime sector. Prior specialised knowledge of the discipline isn’t essential, as we will provide you with an introductory module to the fundamentals of Ship Science.

The programme will prepare students well for careers in a variety of professions in maritime sector, as well as those that are perhaps thinking of pursuing a PhD in this field.

You can choose from five themes, each covers a broad context alongside an in-depth specialisation. These themes aim to provide students with a wide range of specialist areas within the broad field of maritime engineering science:

  • Advanced Computational Engineering
  • Marine Engineering and Autonomy
  • Naval Architecture
  • Ocean Energy and Offshore Engineering
  • Yacht and High Performance Craft

In addition to compulsory modules, you will be able to select module options tailored to your own interest. You will undertake an experimental or numerical research project, and benefit from our Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute (SMMI) research network and our world-class maritime engineering facilities, including the largest towing tank in any UK university.
