The Section and the Department offers a Msc in Coastal and Maritime Engineering and other attractive study opportunities, for instance the study to be a Naval Architect.


The research of the section is concentrated on the following subjects:

  • Stochastic wave loads on ships and offshore structures
  • Parametric roll of ships
  • Propeller flows 
  • Wave dynamics
  • Collision and grounding
  • Risk models for navigational safety
  • Monitoring and decision support
  • Composite materials
  • Structural mechanics
  • Sediment transport
  • Liquifaction
  • Scour and scour protection


The Section collaporates with national as well as international companies, institutions and individuals, and the section is continously adjusting and extending this collaboration network.
