EMMC Coastal and Marine Engineering and Management - CoMEM
The curriculum for each track has been designed to create a balanced set of courses from the existing courses at each partner. The student builds the specific knowledge required for the MSc track and profile through courses, practical assignments and projects, complemented by internships and the supervised final MSc work. The courses are integrated, so prerequisite knowledge from different courses is assured and learning objectives are fulfilled.
To expose the student to new challenges at the state-of-the-art in coastal and marine engineering and management, the programme is complemented by visits to on-going project sites and consultancy companies, and by guest lecturers from associated partners and experienced scholars in the programme.
The CoMEM students will be following existing courses together with students from other MSc programmes facilitating social integration with national students. The curriculum includes 6-8 ECTS of "Society Oriented" content in ethics. These are compulsory. Courses in languages are offered as credit bearing courses. The thesis is an individual in-depth research or expert design project. Students can take an in-depth mono-disciplinary thesis project or link her/his thesis to a multidisciplinary project. The thesis work consists of 30 ECTS.
