The Maritime Technology division offers education in naval architecture. The objective is the formation of M. Sc. engineers having a specialist know-how in the design, construction, drive, operation and operating of maritime systems including ships and offshore installations.

We endeavour to train the students in the calculation and construction issues relating to large steel constructions and to offer them a thorough knowledge of the hydrostatics and hydrodynamics of floating and navigating objects.

Construction and design of ships and other floating structures


The courses in the field of maritime constructions deal with various aspects of ships and other marine structures:

  • functions and general view of ship types and offshore constructions;
  • general arrangement of a ship;
  • function and constructive design of the hull parts;
  • strength and constructive design of the whole ship hull;
  • freeboard assessment and tonnage measurement;
  • shipyard practice;

Lectures concerning the construction of ships:

First master of electromechanical engineering, main subject: maritime engineering
Second master of electromechanical engineering, main subject: maritime engineering

A lot of our students do an internship in the summertime between first and second master year. So did Emiel.


Second master of civil engineering, major water & transportation



Behaviour of floating constructions in water


The lectures on Maritime hydrostatics and hydrodynamics give an overview of the static and dynamic behaviour of marine structures:

  • equilibrium, stability, damage calculations;
  • resistance and propulsion;
  • ship manoeuvring;
  • wave response;

Lectures on ship behaviour on water and hydrodynamics other hydrodynamics:

First master of electromechanical engineering, main subject: maritime engineering
Second master of electromechanical engineering, main subject: maritime engineering
Second master of civil engineering, major water & transportation
Elective course

Acquire theoretical insight into the behaviour of ships in shallow and confined waters such as access channels, canals and harbours, and introduction to common methods for treating related problems. An introduction to the research topics is mentioned on this site.
