Admission to master Offshore & Dredging Engineering
Students with a BSc degree in Mechanical Engineering, Marine Technology (Naval Architecture), Civil Engineering, Ocean Engineering, Aerospace Engineering or Physics can enroll in the Offshore & Dredging Engineering master program.
If you have a closely related BSc degree, you should contact the Head of studies of the program (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A lot of general information about fees, housing, etc. can be found on the Delft University of Technology MSc website. This site includes an online application form which you may print out and use. Any person with a university undergraduate degree from outside the Delft University of Technology wishing to be considered for the next generation of Offshore & Dredging Engineering MSc Degree participants must complete and submit the above standard application form as well as supporting documentation to the university's Student Facilities Center. There is no fee for processing this application.
All Delft MSc curricula require at least two full years (at least 120 ECTS credits) of effort starting in August (for an introductory summer course) or September - the official start of the academic activities - of each year. The entire Offshore & Dredging Engineering MSc curriculum is taught in English; all reporting and communications are expected to be in this language as well.
In the first MSc year, one concentrates largely on classes, exercises and a bit of lab work. One may wish to schedule optional industrial practice in the intervening summer provided that sufficient academic progress is made during that first year. The second year is devoted initially to a few remaining courses and to a thesis which lasts 6 to 8 calendar months.
The above website also gives an indication of course costs. As a rough guide, a two-year stay in Delft will have a total all-in cost of about 30 000 Euros. This includes books, tuition, fees, living expenses and insurance.
Proof of English language proficiency
These rules apply to most of the MSc programmes:
- A TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) overall Band score of at least 90 (internet-based test). Please note that we only accept the TOEFL internet-based test.
- or IELTS (academic version) overall Band score of at least 6.5.
- or proof that you have passed the University of Cambridge 'Certificate of Proficiency in English' or the University of Cambridge 'Certificate in Advanced English'
For some MSc. programmes and tracks, a minimum score for the individual sections are required.
Check for more information the webpage of Admission Requirements.
A solid background in mathematics as well as good basic background in solid and fluid mechanics is equally essential. The university's Board of Examiners will assess your qualifications and experience and inform you of their decision about your admission suitability.
Offshore Engineering has no scholarships of its own. Details about organizations offering scholarships and fellowships are available online. The NUFFIC website is the most informative about this. The university does not mediate in obtaining funding for students. It is therefore important that you apply for funding to the various organizations in a timely fashion.
Bachelor degree of a Dutch HBO
A candidate with a HBO Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering, Marine Technology or Civil Engineering can be admitted conditionally if he or she has completed the BSc programme within 4 years with good results. The intake coordinator of the board of examiners is responsible for the admission decision.
These candidates must follow the so-called pre-masters programme, consisting of a number of BSc courses. While taking the pre-master programme, these students may follow some MSc courses.
- Pre-masters programme: 29 ECTS
