The curriculum has been developed with the requirements of the contemporary market in mind. Therefore, students learn about both small ships, yachts, inshore and inland vessels and about building offshore facilities and the operation of oil rigs. They also learn the technology of ship repair. Students learn shipbuilding from the smallest yachts and cutters to the largest supertankers and large cruise ships.
Graduates are sought after by manufacturing and repair shipyards and by companies which work with the shipbuilding industry. Ship technologists are eagerly hired by design and build offices in the shipbuilding industry, by shipowners, technical supervision institutions and maritime administration. Ocean engineering is also about natural resources engineering, surveying the resources of the seas and oceans and renewable energy sources at sea. Graduates can have a career as scientists at technical universities, research institutions and in the shipbuilding industry’s research and development institutions. They can also seek employment in institutions dealing with sea and ocean mining, implementing new forms of organisation and management, the machine industry and with the operators of ports and fleets.
