Course summary

This MSc equips graduates of engineering and science degrees with the skills they need to join the rapidly growing offshore renewable energy industry, incorporating offshore wind, wave and tidal energy. You’ll learn how the disciplines of meteorology, aerodynamics, mechanical, control, electrical, structural and offshore engineering are utilised in multi-disciplinary teams to deliver a cost-effective offshore power station.

Supervised and supported by members of the School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics, you will also have the opportunity to undertake a substantial research project focused on an aspect of offshore renewable energy.

Key features

  • Be at the forefront of the rapidly growing field of offshore renewable energy at a time when such expertise is increasingly sought after.
  • Develop knowledge and confidence in the processes involved in the design, development, installation, operation and decommissioning of a cost-effective offshore power station.
  • Develop an understanding of the factors that affect the Levelized Cost of Energy delivered by an offshore power station.
  • Develop familiarity with industry standard software used in design.
  • Study at the University named eighth in the world – and best in the UK for the quality and impact of its research in Marine and Ocean Engineering in the Shanghai Ranking Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2019.
  • Benefit from our research team’s expertise – our staff achieved ratings of ‘world leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’ in the UK Government’s most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014).
  • Take advantage of the University of Plymouth’s leadership role in the Supergen Offshore Renewable Energy Hub.
  • Gain experience in the use of world leading facilities such as the COAST Lab test tanks as part of your taught programme and your research.
  • Live and study in ‘Britain’s Ocean City’, with easy access to businesses and the marine environment, this is an ideal location to study offshore renewables.

Engineers are involved in all stages of the offshore renewable energy industry; from proof of concept of new energy converter concepts through to the operation, maintenance and eventual decommissioning of offshore power stations supplying clean renewable energy around the world. This programme aims to give you a step-up into this industry. Graduates will be ready to hit the ground running with project developers, engineering and design consultancies, certification agencies and marine contractors.
