Since the age of exploration, exploring the world has been a preoccupation for the adventurous and the business savvy. Those interested in going above and beyond a bachelor's degree may consider a two-year master's degree to improve their marketability in the workforce.

What is an MSc in Maritime Engineering? It is a graduate level degree that typically requires at least two full years of additional study. It is suitable for those with a background in physical sciences or engineering and are already familiar with marine environments. It prepares students to solve engineering problems related to the machinery, vehicles and structures used to perform work in the oceans. Topics of study include naval architecture, hull design and propeller systems. Other areas of focus may include material selection and development of underwater electrical systems.

After completing one of these programs, graduates are familiar with common difficulties and known solutions for marine applications. They have an advanced understanding of the mechanical, hydraulic and electrical tools used for creating devices that function in ocean environments. The study of fluid mechanics and ocean chemistry prepares them to design vehicles and equipment that withstand the harsh environment of the seas.

The cost for these programs varies depending on the institution. Those interested should contact the admissions departments of schools under consideration for specific fee and tuition rates. Students are also advised to budget for transportation and living expenses.

Professionals equipped with one of these degrees are prepared for a variety of rewarding careers. Many work for ship yards designing new ships or improving existing systems. Some go on to work for energy producing companies and develop strategies for maintaining and enhancing the safe operations of oil platforms. Research institutions need those who can create new technology to avoid underwater hazards. Shipping companies and off-shore salvage operations also rely on these experts to oversee the use of expensive equipment.

It is important to consider as many options as possible before deciding on a single program, and online coursework provides quality educational opportunities. For international students or busy working professionals, distance learning helps to overcome scheduling and transportation difficulties.
