2024-2025 Graduate Catalog

Academic Curriculum


The foundation of the 36-credit Master’s Program is a required 21-credit core consisting of the following courses:

EM610            Computational Methods

EM621            Advanced Marine Power Plants

EM622            Thermal System Design and Optimization

EM623            Advanced Marine Materials

EM631            Electrical Power Systems

EM650            Internal Combustion Engine Analysis and New Technologies

EM670            Marine Industry Policy

 

Students must augment this core with 15 credits of electives. Typical electives include:

EM615            Computational Fluid Dynamics

EM620            Marine Propulsion Systems (1)

EM624            Vibrations of Marine Machinery and Structures

EM625            LNG Vessel Operations and Design Considerations

EM626            Marine Nuclear Propulsion

EM627            Alternative Marine Power Production

EM632            Power Electronics and Applications

EM633            Control Theory and PLC Applications

EM634            Marine Electrical Systems and Propulsion

EM640            Economics of Marine Engineering Systems

EM642            Reliability Engineering and Operations Research

EM645            Marine Engineering Management I

EM646            Marine Engineering Management II

EM655            Pump Design and Operation in Shipboard Systems

EM660            Hydrostatics and Basic Hydrodynamics (1)

EM661            Propulsion and Propulsors

EM665            Large Bore Natural Gas Spark-Ignition and Dual Fuel Engines 

EM680            Thesis/Design Project 1 (2)

EM681            Thesis/Design Project 2 (2)

EM690            Independent Study

 

(1) - Only for students who have not had formal education in marine engineering and/or naval architecture

(2) - Faculty advisor/mentor for specific thesis/design projects are selected from the Engineering Faculty at-large, depending on area of interest

The Program attempts to offer electives that address the needs of the marine industry and are of interest to the students. Specific elective course offerings will depend on student interest and availability of faculty.  Individual student elective course selections will be determined after the student confers with the MMarE Program Director or assigned faculty advisor. Not all electives will be available to each graduating class.
