About

The Naval Architecture MSc from University College London (UCL) is designed to provide students with knowledge and skills in naval architecture theory, analysis and design procedures for both naval and merchant ships.

Overview

The knowledge gained on the programme should enable graduates to be easily integrated into industrial ship design teams.

In this Naval Architecture programme from University College London (UCL), students study ship dynamics, ship hydrodynamics, ship structures and the use of computers in advanced engineering analysis. 

They work in multidisciplinary teams with marine engineers (from the Marine Engineering MSc) on a comprehensive group ship design exercise. Research skills are honed through project work undertaken in the specialist fields of hydrodynamics, ship dynamics, structures and design.

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).

Careers

There is currently a global demand for well-qualified naval architects. As a result, graduates from the programme should have a range of employment opportunities in this sector. 

Employability

UCL Naval Architecture MSc students are highly employable, particularly given the global demand for  suitably qualified naval architects. The programme is designed to embed higher learning through academic study, individual research and a multidisciplinary ship design exercise. It is delivered by leading researchers from across UCL in collaboration with the Ministry of Defence. 

Accreditation

The Naval Architecture MSc has been accredited, for a period of five years from the 2017 student cohort, by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST) and the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) as meeting the further learning requirements, in full, for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
