Course summary

About this course

Study the latest maritime techniques, methods and software on this MSc in Advanced Computational Engineering in Maritime Engineering at the University of Southampton. Learn the theory and practice behind maritime computational engineering science as you take on practical design tasks and prepare how to work effectively with industry. You’ll graduate with the skills for a successful career or for continued study at PhD level.

This Maritime Engineering Science: Advanced Computational Engineering MSc is one of 5 maritime engineering science specialisms you can study at the University of Southampton.

You’ll gain an advanced understanding of the fundamental principles, methods and applications of maritime engineering science.

On this pathway you'll also learn advanced computational methods incorporating:

  • complied versus interpreted language
  • combining C-code with Python
  • version control and one version control tool
  • remote and local use of Linux computers
  • shell commands
  • symbolic methods and code generation

Maritime computational engineering covers topics such as advanced sensors and signal processing techniques for machinery condition monitoring. You’ll look at condition-monitoring strategies, leading-edge sensing methods and advanced signal processing techniques. You’ll also gain an introduction to condition-monitoring procedures and system integration.

Optional study topics include aeroelasticity, which covers aeroelastic stability and response. A combination of theoretical and practical teaching will give you a solid understanding of the subject and its application to various aeronautical systems. You’ll get the chance to work with professional software tools currently used by large aerospace industries.

Throughout your studies, you’ll learn how to solve engineering problems by taking account of social, technical, economic and environmental constraints.
