Academic Programs

Bachelor's Degree Program

  • BSc in Marine Technology - MT (3 years, Dutch): The Marine Technology degree programme consists mainly of mathematics, physics and typical subject-related courses. Lectures and tutorials are interspersed with laboratory courses and projects in which you make calculations and apply these to practical situations. These projects are geared to teach you how to collaborate, present and report, which are indispensable in your later work. You will spend about seventy per cent of your time attending lectures, tutorials, laboratory courses and instruction as well as carrying out self-study. For the remaining thirty per cent, you will work on projects in a group of about eight students.

Masters Degree Programs

  • MSc in Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics - TIL (2 years, English): This program provides graduates with a comprehensive view of the field of transport, infrastructure and logistics. TIL offers you courses and projects to acquire knowledge, insights, and skills in the broad area of traffic (the movement of vehicles), transport (the movement of passengers and freight), infrastructure (roads, railways and harbors) and logistics (the organization behind freight movements and transshipments both within and between industrial complexes).
  • MSc in Marine Technology - MT (2 years, English): This program 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. Marine Technology offers two master track - Science, which is focused at the more fundamental side of Marine Technology and Design Production and Operation, which focuses more on the interaction and integration between disciplines.
  • MSc in Offshore & Dredging Engineering (2 years, English): The overall objective of the Delft University of Technology Offshore & Dredging Engineering 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 program consists of four specializations: Bottom Founded Structures, Arctic & Wind; Floating Offshore Structures; Structural Design & Analysis and Dredging Engineering, Trenching & Deepsea Mining.
