Physical oceanography, geophysics and naval hydrodynamics are based upon a common foundation of physics, mechanics, and applied mathematics. We offer a master degree in Marine Sciences at Université de Bretagne Occidentale. 


The Marine Sciences programme from Université de Bretagne Occidentale offers a two years intensive program with fundamental lectures, advanced courses, internships and research projects. The program is held at the University of Brest in collaboration with engineering schools, Ifremer and research laboratories at IUEM. 

The training provides career opportunities in research and academia in oceanography, climate science, geophysics and in applications such as operational oceanography, naval hydrodynamics, observation and monitoring of the coastal and deep sea environment, exploitation of marine mineral resources.

Courses highlight:

  • Geophysical fluid dynamics: a framework to understand ocean physics
  • New remote sensing methods and observing systems for the ocean and solid Earth
  • Strong mathematical training: advanced calculs and numerical methods
