MSc in Marine Technology (International) DUBAI


The MSc in Marine Technology (International) has been developed with the aim of giving graduates in the maritime industry access to a high quality, flexible and innovative masters programme with minimum disruption to their working commitments. The programme mirrors postgraduate programmes successfully delivered by Newcastle University in the United Kingdom. Modules are delivered in the host country via a combination of distance learning material and week- long intensive schools.
Programme Description

The programme enables graduates working in the marine industry to gain the necessary skills in advanced technologies, management and business. The programme is dynamic and aims to respond to the current challenges and demands of the global maritime sector.

The MSc consists of ten 10-credit taught modules and an 80-credit work-based project, and can be completed in just over two years. Modules are also available on a stand alone basis as Continuing Professional Development. Each taught module requires approximately 100 hours of study time. Students are required to work through distance learning material (provided via a web-based virtual learning environment) before attending a locally- delivered intensive school.

The School of Marine Science and Technology

The School of Marine Science and Technology is the largest school of its kind in Europe and is the first marine school in the United Kingdom to provide a single base for all education, innovation and research related to the sea. Marine Technologists at Newcastle recognise that the use of the sea and waterways for energy resources, transport and leisure is growing rapidly, and lead the development of new solutions for sustainable marine industries. Research activities underpin teaching on all programmes.

The School enjoys a substantial international reputation, with a history of over one hundred years of excellent teaching provision.

The MSc in Marine Technology (International) is now being launched in Dubai in collaboration with Emirates International Maritime Academy. It is strategically located in the UAE to serve aspiring students from GCC and neighbouring countries. The UAE has a thriving maritime sector and Dubai is fast developing into a maritime centre.
