Every day, freight trains, trucks, aeroplanes and ships transport enormous quantities of raw material and manufactured goods around the world, while billions of people travel for work and leisure in the same manner. The Marine technology profile of this Master’s programme will prepare you to guide the future evolution of the shipping industry, making it the most efficient, safe, and environmentally friendly means of transportation possible.
The global economy runs on shipping. Every day, ships transport huge quantities of raw material and manufactured goods around the world. Optimising the shipping industry over the next few decades is therefore a great and pressing engineering challenge. In addition, the emerging field of ocean energy also poses huge demands — the development and design of new types of floating marine structures, both offshore and subsea.
The focus is on ships and offshore structures, but is equally attractive for those with a general interest in strength and hydrodynamic analysis and systems engineering. By selecting a particular combination of the courses offered in the programme — “Stability and design basis for marine structures”, “Naval architecture”, “Ship resistance and propulsion”, “Structural engineering” and “Wave loads and seakeeping”, the programme also offers the possibility to graduate as a Naval architect.
Marine technology research at Chalmers covers shipbuilding design methodology, structural and strength properties, vessel stability and manoeuvrability, lightweight construction, risk analysis and much more. The research aims to contribute to sustainable shipping, maritime safety and energy efficiency.
The programme as a whole addresses the critical industries of aerospace engineering, automotive engineering, marine technology, and railway technology, with the option to specialise in one in particular. Graduates from the Mobility engineering programme at Chalmers will be qualified to take up professional roles within research and development, design and simulation of processes, systems, and parts of automotive, railway, aerospace and maritime vehicles or other mechanical systems.
Both the holistic approach and the possibility for in-depth studies provided in the programme also offers a suitable background when aiming for a career or role within academic research, technical support, sales, manufacturing or management at different levels.
Apart from the specific entry requirements for the whole programme, students pursuing this profile will need to have prior knowledge in fluid mechanics and in the strength of materials.
