About this field of study

We offer a wide range of education in the area of consideration, which includes both the construction of ships and floating objects, as well as the exploitation of oceans and seas. The offer have been prepared  in according to modern requirements of the market, including topics  related to the construction of small ships, yachts, coastal shipping vessels, inland, vessels for oil rig support, etc.,  as well as issues of technology, ship repair. We learn to build ships within range of the smallest yachts and fishing boats to the largest tankers and  large passenger vessels.


Outline of the study program.

The program lasts  3 or 4 semesters (from Academic Year 2019/2020).

In the case of studies in English we offer one specialty: Ocean Engineering, with two separate diploma profiles: Ship Technology and Offshore Engineering and Marine Engineering and Offshore Energy.

Graduates obtain advanced  general technical knowledge and skills necessary for creative use in the design, construction, repair and operation of ships, ocean engineering objects and systems present in the maritime sector. Graduate is prepared to execute designing and construction works in the area of ​​Ocean Engineering; conducting scientific researches in the area of ​​Ocean Engineering; production management, operation and  repairs of ships and ocean engineering objects and teamwork in an international environment. A graduate is also prepared to work in factories of widely recognized shipbuilding sector; designing and engineering offices of shipbuilding and maritime branch; R & D centres of shipbuilding and maritime economy; enterprise advisory and consulting services in the area of ​​Ocean Engineering; shipbuilding classification institutions; Maritime Administration and the international institutions of the naval sector. Graduates should have instilled habits of lifelong learning and professional development and be prepared to take up research challenges and to study the third degree.
