Exploring and developing marine opportunities with technology

The future requires us to both nurture and utilise the oceans. This requires innovation and expertise in marine technology. The Master’s Programme in Marine Technology provides you with the technical knowledge to solve marine challenges and create marine opportunities – a skill that is increasingly in demand.

What will you study?

You’ll explore areas such as oceanography, marine engineering, and radar and sonar technology. You will immerse yourself in underwater technology and through collaboration between BTH and other actors in the industry. The programme has been developed in collaboration with Swedish industry to match its needs, and both years end with projects linked to real situations and your future professional role. During the projects, you will study product development, project management and industrial economics.

What does the future look like?

The programme is based on the needs of companies such as Saab and their submarine production, the Swedish Armed Forces, the Coast Guard, NKT and others working with marine technology and energy. After graduation, you can work with new technologies on ships or develop remote-controlled robots. You could plan the deployment of underwater installations or work with offshore energy such as wave and wind power. Professional roles include development manager, development engineer, strategic project manager, product developer, specialist or technical manager.  The skills also open up opportunities outside the marine sector if you want to change industry in the future.

The programme is brand new and some information may be missing on this page. We’ll fill it in as soon as we can, but please get in touch if you have any questions. You can find contact details further down the page.
