120 credits

Programme content

International Master in Advanced Design in Ships and Offshore Structures

The EMSHIP+ master is offered and taught entirely in English. Students who opt for this international master must take a mobility programme worth 60 credits at one of the programme's partner universities: the Ecole Centrale de Nantes (ECN), the University of Rostock, (URO, Germany) or the Polytecnic University of Madrid (UPM, Spain).

EMSHIP+ targets Engineers searching for advanced education in :

  • Hydrodynamic and structural analyses of ships and offshore structures,
  • CAD and information technology,
  • Shipyard and production technology,
  • Commercial ships, mega/motor yachts, sailing pleasure crafts ...
  • Offshore Wind Energy (Supply vessels, Offshore wind turbines, FOWT...),
  • Ocean Engineering (Oil and Gas technology)

During their studies, students are deeply immersed in the industrial world; the programme comprises an extended internship (3-5 months) and a Master's thesis carried out at a company (shipyard, classification societies, ship owner, design firm or research institute, etc.). At the end of the Master's programme, there is a wide range of career opportunities that lead to jobs in production (shipyard), in a company (part suppliers: propulsion, dredging, ships specialised in Offshore Wind Turbines installation, etc.), at a research institute (HSVA, CMT...), at a classification societies (BV, DNV-GL, LR, etc.) as well as in an university setting working towards a PhD.

In conclusion, the EMship+ key points are: -          An interdisciplinary combination of technical, scientific and management skills obtained through a worldwide unique qualification program supported by 9 leading universities, offering a double/join degree Master diploma and excellent career opportunities to graduates. -          Three different specializations offered during the second year, after a one-year common core. -          The opportunity to experience a variety of academic and cultural environments through a mobility scheme covering two or three different countries. -          An international network of associated universities and industrial partners.
