The title Master's Degree in Naval and Oceanic Engineering Provides the necessary scientific and technological knowledge to access the positions of greater responsibility in the marine industry, being the continuation of the official degrees of degrees in Naval Architecture, Engineering in Propulsion and Services of the Ship and Naval and Oceanic Engineering.

This is an official Master's degree with professional guidance with the competencies established in Order CIN / 354/2009 and therefore qualifies for the exercise of the regulated profession of Naval and Oceanic Engineer.

The master's degree allows direct contact with the groups and research programs that are developed in the School and that have their continuity in the doctorate.

Why study the degree

A career with a future... We train highly qualified professionals prepared to access positions of responsibility in a labor market with many fields of action.

A fascinating profession... This profession will enable you to work in sectors related to Naval and Ocean Engineering (Project, manufacturing engineering, construction management, technical inspection, safety, rescue and rescue, logistic support, maintenance plans, transformations, reforms and large Repairs, management of maritime industries, etc.) are mainly developed on the following technological systems:

  • Ships and boats of all types
  • Platforms and floating and fixed devices (Floating docks, dredges and auxiliary devices for the construction and maintenance of ports and coasts, devices for exploration and exploitation of marine resources, etc.)
  • Offshore technology
  • Aquaculture and fishing systems
  • Marine industries (Shipyards, shipping companies, etc.)

Practical training in companies... You will be able to carry out practices within a wide range of concerted companies that cover practically all the sectors of our profession.
