The overall objective of the Delft University of Technology Offshore & Dredging Engineering MSc Degree curriculum is to prepare its participants to work in and later lead teams of engineers designing all sorts of man-made objects to be used in localized areas of the (deeper) sea. The entire MSc curriculum lasts two academic years (120 ECTS). The courses which make up the offshore engineering MSc curriculum are divided into the core curriculum and a specialisations of choice.

About

Since 1922 Dredging Engineering and since 1975 Offshore Engineering courses are given at the Delft University of Technology. In 2004 these two specialisations merged and formed the new MSc programme Offshore Engineering, a two-year curriculum leading to the MSc degree in Offshore Engineering. The programme consists of four specialisations: Fixed (Bottom Founded) Structures, Floating Structures, Subsea Engineering and Dredging Engineering. Students with a BSc degree in Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Marine Technology and Ocean Engineering can enrol in this programme. Students with a different background should first consult the staff of Offshore Engineering to explore the possibilities.

Offshore & Dredging Engineering is multidisciplinary and is a cooperation between Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Marine Technology.

Offshore & Dredging Engineers make structures such as fixed and floating platforms for the oil and gas industry. They also design undersea pipelines and other underwater equipment for this sector. An important feature is the design of dredging equipment for land reclamation, maintenance and the recovery of embedded minerals in deep-sea locations. Another application of offshore engineering is the design of offshore wind farms. Offshore & Dredging Engineers are the people who design facilities for the 70% of the earth’s surface area that is not land.

Academic Requirements

Admission Requirements:

Proof of English language proficiency

These rules apply to most of the MSc programmes:

  • A TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) overall Band score of at least 90 (internet-based test). Please note that we only accept the TOEFL internet-based test.
  • or IELTS (academic version) overall Band score of at least 6.5.
  • or proof that you have passed the University of Cambridge 'Certificate of Proficiency in English' or the University of Cambridge 'Certificate in Advanced English'

Bachelor degree of a Dutch Polytechnic (TH)

A candidate with a TH degree in Mechanical Engineering, Marine Technology or Civil Engineering can be admitted conditionally if he or she has completed the BSc programme within 4 years with good results. The intake coordinator of the board of examiners is responsible for the admission decision.

These candidates must follow the so-called pre-masters programme, consisting of a number of BSc courses. While taking the pre-master programme, these students may follow some MSc courses.
