The combination of mechanical engineering with electronics, metrology, steering technology and control engineering offered during the Ship and Offshore Technology programme at University of Duisburg-Essen have created entirely new products and processes. 


Germany is home to Europe's largest supplier industry for shipbuilding, with mechanical engineering companies implementing innovative solutions for a globalized market. Moreover, the switch to renewable energy has led to increased research and development in the field of green energy, alternative drive systems, and the end-to-end optimization of maritime systems. 

All this activity has created one of the largest supplier industries for offshore wind technology. 

The Ship and Offshore Technology profile at University of Duisburg-Essen caters to the resulting need for highly qualified engineers in this area. It builds on the basic principles of general mechanical engineering by focusing on the maritime and offshore technology sectors. Encompassing hydrodynamics, construction, structural integrity and numerical and experimental procedures, it provides the knowledge and skills required for addressing technical maritime and offshore issues in a mechanical engineering context. The modules are structured in such a way as to ensure students gain knowledge and skills appropriate to mechanical engineering in general and maritime and offshore technology in particular. Electives can be chosen from a wide selection of engineering disciplines, thus allowing students to focus on their individual needs and interests.
