A ship is a very complex organism. Various systems act in concert to perform the different tasks a ship may be designed to carry out. Aalesund University College is situated in the middle of the worlds largest maritime cluster, and you will benefit from international and regional expertise.

About

It is a great engineering challenge to design new ship systems that could turn shipping into the most efficient, safe and environmentally friendly means of transportation in the future. New ship design is typically in response to needs coming from new technologies, changes in the world politics, new strategies and lessons learned from previous ship development.

During Ship Design programme at Aalesund University College, in the second semester you choose one of the following majors:

  • Ship Structural Design. In this course you will study the factors influencing the structural design of ships. Theoretical understanding of the structural capacity of a ship is accompanied by up-to-date practical calculation methods.
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). A theoretical background to numerical prediction of fluid flow is given. CFD tools are used to predict the resistance of ship hulls and to study local flows for design optimization of various structural details (brackets, rudder positions, etc.)

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score: 6.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

    Take IELTS test
  • Minimum required score: 600

    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

  • Minimum required score: 90

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

Academic Requirements

  • BSc in engineering in marine technology with minimum 30 ECTS mathematics (one semester) or a documented, equivalent education.
  • An average grade equivalent to a Norwegian C is required in order to be considered.

Tuition Fee Per Full Programme

  • Free International
  • Free National

  • There are no tuition fees for the master programmes, but all students must have sufficient funding to cover cost of living.
