Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in a related speciality.
In order to qualify for the studies at Tallinn University of Technology, an applicant has to have at least 60% of the highest possible CGPA.
For detailed information about requested documents and suitable qualifications, please take a look at country specific requirements.
GRE General Test result must be presented as it is a preliminary requirement for applying. The required threshold score, exemption criteria, and other necessary information are available here.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Estonian.
It is required to upload the official translations along with the original education documents to the online application system.
To apply for the studies, an adequate proof of English language proficiency must be presented. Accepted certificates and required results are specified on our homepage.
The proof of English may only be waived if a candidate has completed on-site secondary education, Bachelor’s or Master’s degree taught fully in English in one of the following countries: EU/EEA member states, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, United Kingdom. If you have completed studies in English but not on-site in the country named above, we ask you to present an internationally recognised test indicated on our homepage.
A motivation letter must be added to your application.
For each programme you apply to, an individual motivation letter (statement of purpose) must be inserted.
Please provide the following:
NB! It is important to properly cite and reference any sources used in your motivation letter (quotations, publications, ideas etc. that are not your own). Additionally, AI-generated text is not acceptable as the purpose of the motivation letter is to show the applicant’s genuine motivation. Neglecting the aforementioned principles will result in the disqualification of your application.
A Master of Science in Marine Engineering knows the different sectors of maritime industry and demonstrates diverse engineering competence. As a graduate, he or she is an expert in designing and building ships or other marine structures. In the constantly developing maritime industry, the graduate of the MSc programme in Marine Engineering is able to respond to the challenges of the green transition: developing marine structures from sustainable materials, refitting vessels for their transfer to climate-neutral fuels, or construction of floating offshore wind turbines.
Courses take place in two autumn semesters (Sep – Jan) at TalTech Kuressaare College and in the first spring semester (Feb – June) at TalTech main campus in Tallinn. The spring semester of the second academic year is intended for the completion of the master’s thesis, and the actual location largely depends on the topic of the thesis. The thesis will be defended in Kuressaare.
In the master’s program in Marine Engineering, you will gain in-depth knowledge of the design, construction and materials of floating structures. The master’s programme focuses on construction of new small craft and other marine structures as well as on the retrofit of ships.
In general and basic studies, students get a complete picture of the current state of the marine engineering sector and development trends. In Special Studies module, a student can choose elective courses in three different areas:
- Complex marine structures;
- Stability and hydrodynamics of ships;
- Electrical engineering and mechatronics.
Students can also choose internships and additional subject courses in the field of electronics and smart systems.
The Blue Economy Development and Competence Centre of TalTech Kuressaare College has several focus areas, to which the master’s programme is directly or indirectly related: marine technology, hydrodynamics and structures, and smart sea/smart technology.
With a Master’s degree in Marine Engineering, your future job will be in the international marine industry sector or in companies offering engineering solutions. Another option is to focus on research and development activities and to continue with doctoral studies either at Tallinn University of Technology or elsewhere, including outside Estonia.
