TU Delft's MSc Programme in Marine Technology (MT) – the only one of its type offered in the Netherlands – gives future engineers the knowledge and skills they need to handle the entire process of design, construction, production and operation of these ships and marine systems.
In the programme, MT engineers acquire a thorough understanding of basic engineering sciences and marine technology disciplines, and develop multidisciplinary problem-solving skills. As a participant in the programme, you will also select an area of specialisation from topics such as ship hydromechanics, ship and offshore structures, marine systems design and ship production, and will consider the various social and environmental impacts associated with marine technology applications.
The Master's programme Marine Technology offers two tracks: Science and Design, Production and Operation.
Track 'Science' (SC)
The Science track offers students a choice between two specialisations: Ship Hydromechanics and Ship and Offshore Structures.
Specialisation Ship Hydromechanics
This specialisation is concerned with ship motion behaviour in waves and manoeuvring. Safety and operability are key words. An example of very successful research in this field at TU Delft is the ‘Axe Bow concept’, a revolutionary bow shape for highly increased operability of fast ships. A second field of research within this track is resistance and propulsion, where the focus is on sustainable ship propulsion. Courses cover topics such as cavitation of propellers and sailing yacht performance.
Specialisation Ship and Offshore Structures
This specialisation focuses on considerations of structure and strength in ships and offshore structures. Increasingly, Ship Structures is concerned with hydromechanics (ship motions).
Track 'Design, Production, and Operation' (DPO)
The Design, Production, and Operation (DPO) track includes four specialisations, each of which presents abundant possibilities to combine in-depth study of technical topics with either logistics, technical marketing, management, safety and sustainability. The four specialisations are: Ship Design, Ship Production, Shipping Management and Marine Engineering.
TU Delft students who choose this track may spend their first semester abroad. Other students follow the entire curriculum at the TUDelft (they are already abroad). In the second year, students have the option to combine the elective internship with the graduation project, addressing a single topic and working at the same company while completing both requirements.

In most cases, if you hold a BSc degree and the Master’s programme is closely related to your Bachelor’s programme, you will be admitted directly into the programme. However, if the Master’s programme does not follow directly from your undergraduate programme, you will be required to take additional courses in what is called a bridging programme. This may be a standard programme, or it may be tailored to your specific situation.
International students should consider taking a Pre-Master to gain access to universities in Netherlands when:
