What will I learn?

This Master's course aims to educate future engineers who specialise in fluid mechanics, specifically in the unique offshore, coastal and built environments. You will gain hands-on experience with access to our world class Hydrodynamics Laboratory to perform and observe experimental investigations. Our Engineering Fluid Mechanics for the Offshore, Coastal and Built Environments provides training to a new generation of Engineers in Fluid Mechanics. The course is both theoretical and practical, with a strong design component to ensure practical knowledge of the discipline.

There are pre-session modules in Mathematics and the specialist software Matlab, ensuring all students have a solid understanding of the fundamentals. Once the fundamentals have been covered you move onto in-depth modules in modelling, transport, computation, coastal processes and energy systems. You will complete a research project in a relevant area of your choice, ensuring you can produce an in-depth written piece on a topic suiting your personal interests or future career intentions.

All of our MSc courses last one calendar year, comprising two terms of taught material, assessed by examination and coursework, followed by a five-month period involving one or more design projects and/or a research dissertation.
