"Nowadays, 95 percent of world trade consists of goods carried by water, so ships are not merely means of transport, but the backbone of the global economy. A similar amount of know-how goes into a container ship as into an Airbus. Key technologies are employed in both. In view of the competition, the building of modern types of ships such as passenger boats and ro-ro ferries, container ships, mega-yachts and naval vessels requires a high degree of adaptability and prompt action. Scarcely any other city has been shaped by shipbuilding and shipping to the same extent as Hamburg, which boasts the world’s fifth largest port. The TUHH is the only German university to offer a self-contained Bachelor’s course in naval architecture. Consequently, students are introduced to the ship as a system at an early stage."
"The four-semester, research-oriented Master (MSc) Program in Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering builds on the Bachelor (BSc) in Naval Architecture and in General Engineering Science majoring in Naval Architecture. It presupposes in-depth knowledge of basic mathematical, natural science, engineering and naval engineering principles, which may if necessary be verified. The central focus of this discipline is on acquiring knowledge and skills to develop, design, calculate and appraise naval and ocean engineering designs and their components. This Master program begins by extending the basic natural science and engineering principles in relation to naval architecture and ocean engineering by way of nine compulsory modules in various sub-disciplines. An extensive list of compulsory electives enables students to specialize in sub-disciplines such as ship design, design engineering and stability, hydrodynamics and ship theory, marine engineering, ocean engineering, and planning and production. Laboratories, seminars and a project report round off the program, which culminates in the fourth-semester Master’s thesis."
Ship & Offshore Technology (M.Sc.; Joint Masters University of Strathclyde and Hamburg University of Technology)
"This programme is designed for graduate engineers or those from related disciplines who wish to acquire advanced knowledge on ship and offshore technologies. The course is offered jointly between the University of Strathclyde and Hamburg University of Technology in Germany, and the awards are made in the name of the two universities. "
