Job opportunities

An attractive discipline that combines a long-standing tradition with the most current information and marine technologies, mechanical engineering is one of the most sought-after fields in industry.

Thanks to their cross-disciplinary knowledge, EMSHIP engineers can offer innovative solutions to design and implementation problems in numerous sectors of the Marine and Offshore industry.

At the end of the Master's programme, there is a wide range of career opportunities that lead to jobs in production (shipyards), in a company (part suppliers: propulsion, dredging, ships specialised in windmill transport, etc.), in a research institute (ship model basin (HSVA), CMT (naval technology, etc.), classification societies (BV, DNV-GL, LR, etc.) as well as in a university setting working towards a doctorate. Current experience is that 98% of graduates find a job in Belgium, Europe or their home country within 6 months.

Typical job opportunities concern :

  • ship and marine structure design,
  • numerical simulation for fluids and structures,
  • marine renewable energies,
  • building and maintenance in shipyards,
  • safety and sustainibility management...
