PROGRAM CONTENT, STRUCTURE AND PROGRESSION:
Consisting of a total of 120 ECTS, the master program is made up of 20 ECTS basic methods subjects (B) which consolidate and continue the mathematical and scientific foundation from the bachelor program. 20 ECTS are core offshore subjects (C) which give the students a broad and common platform in offshore technology as well as complement and expand subjects from the bachelor program. The remaining 75 ECTS consist of 35 ECTS of compulsory specialization subjects (S), 15 ECTS elective subjects (E) and a final master thesis of 30 ECTS (M).

The faculty will offer a list of recommended electives. The students themselves must check that they have the necessary basic knowledge to be able to tackle these courses. Other electives must be approved by the department, but the students will have considerable freedom in putting together their own combinations depending on personal interests and qualities.

The master thesis may be prepared either at the faculty or in cooperation with industry. The department has good contacts with offshore companies in the region. In order to be assigned a topic for a master paper, satisfactory progression must be demonstrated as cited in Regulations for Master's thesis.

Marine and Offshore Technology is devoted to systems and operations in subsea field developments. The program combines basic mechanical engineering subjects with marine technology and knowledge of systems and operations related to installation, operation and maintenance.

UiS wishes to offer all its programs as planned, but courses still have to be subject to availability of resources and a minimum student enrollment. Also the content and scope of the courses will necessarily have to change over time because of professional development, use of new technology and general social change.

The course work consists of lectures, project assignments, obligatory and voluntary exercises and laboratory work. The course descriptions provide further information on:
  • Class work and instruction
  • Set texts
  • Evaluation
  • Exams
