The aim of the Master's programme is to enable you to work independently as an engineer in a prominent position in the maritime industry. The degree programme completes and deepens the competences acquired in the Bachelor's programmes and enables you to work as a responsible specialist for overarching tasks or in a special field and to take on management tasks.
As a graduate, you will be able to successfully deal with interdisciplinary issues and handle highly complex systems in an international environment.
Jobs for naval architects with a Master's degree can be found in the regional maritime sector, but also throughout Germany and internationally, for example in the shipbuilding industry, the maritime supply industry, engineering offices, shipping companies, maritime research institutes, and related professions such as steel structures, plant engineering or aircraft industry.
Naval architects work in an international environment with customers and suppliers from all over the world.
In the first master's semester, your engineering fundamentals are deepened. A major focus here is on the application of computer-based methods.
In the second semester, you have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge and specialise in a compulsory elective module. An essential component of the course program is the extensive design project, in which current topics taken from practice are worked on realistically in a team.
The programme ends in the third semester with the Master's thesis.
Naval architecture and ocean engineering lives from cross-border cooperation. You can therefore take the opportunity to spend one of the semesters with one of HSB’s partner companies abroad.
„I only began to realise just how well the Master's prepared me for my job when I was a little further away. The design project in particular simulates the interesting and diverse everyday life of naval architects with its practical approach.“
