The Naval Architecture MSc is designed to provide the necessary knowledge and skills in naval architecture theory, analysis and design procedures, as applied to naval and merchant ships, so that students may be easily integrated into industrial ship design teams.

Students study ship dynamics, ship hydrodynamics, ship structures, the use of computers in advanced engineering analysis, and work in multidisciplinary teams with marine engineers (from the sister Marine Engineering MSc) on a comprehensive and unique ship design exercise. Research skills are honed through project work undertaken in the specialist fields of hydrodynamics, ship dynamics, structures and design.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of three core modules (90 credits), a ship design exercise (45 credits) and a research project (45 credits).

Core modules

  • Ship Dynamics
  • Ship Structures (including subsea structures)
  • Ship Hydrodynamics

Dissertation/report

All students complete a ship design group exercise, and undertake an independent research project which explores an aspect of ship design or performance analysis in depth.

Teaching and learning

The programme is delivered through lectures, tutorials, individual and group projects, seminars and coursework assignments, which include advanced computational analysis. Assessment is through written, oral and viva voce examinations and assessed coursework (including the evaluation of technical reports, problem solving exercises, project reports, computational and modelling skills, and oral presentations).

A minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree from a UK university in a suitable engineering subject or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.
