Master of Marine Technologies

The Master of Marine Technology is composed of two specializations:  hydrodynamics for Ocean Engineering and Atlantic Master on Ship Operation & Naval Engineering. The first one aims to give students advanced training on typical problems of hydrodynamics applied to naval architecture and ocean engineering. The second specialization allows its students to develop skills in naval engineering and to become engineers experienced in ship operations. An outstanding feature of this programme is that you will have on-board training sessions on French Navy vessels. The programme of study lasts two academic years and includes French language courses.
