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.
