Marine Engineering

For ships, especially the complex ones that are built in Western Europe, to fulfil the functions for which they are designed, they must incorporate vast machinery installations. The machinery installations include, but are not limited to, propulsion systems, electrical power supplies, pump-flow systems, and heating, ventilation & air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

The challenge of designing and integrating the various systems into an efficient overall system is not something to be dealt with lightly. It requires knowledge of the characteristics of the components of systems and the methods to control them, and also requires an understanding of underlying engineering fundamentals. The Marine Engineering specialisation strives to provide students with a good combination of in-depth knowledge of these complex systems and the broader knowledge required for successful system integration so essential in marine engineering.

What you will learn
In this specialisation, specific attention is paid to diesel engines and gas turbines, the selection of appropriate propulsion systems, auxiliary systems, mechatronics and the modelling, simulation and analysis of the dynamic behaviour of complex systems.

Graduation projects
The master theses are carried out either in-house or, more often, at national and international shipyards, or at sites operated by manufacturers of marine equipment (e.g. propellers or diesel engines) or ship owners/operators, often within the context of larger (European) research projects.
