Corona Virus – Minimisation of the infection risk
With respect to its responsibility for the health of its staff, Ph.D. students and students, the Institute of Ship Technology, Ocean Engineering and Transport Systems as well is strictly implementing the measures regarding protection against Covid-19.
Our staff members continue to be available to you by email and telephone as far as teaching and research are concerned.
Here you will find further information by
- the University of Duisburg-Essen
- the Faculty of Engineering
- the Institute of Ship Technology, Ocean Engineering and Transport Systems.
The lectures and tutorials will start on 2 th November 2020 and be transmitted by video conference.
The current timetables for the bachelor's and master's degree programs in mechanical engineering with a focus on ship and offshore technology, as well as the master’s program in mechanical engineering with a focus on ship and offshore technology can be accessed via the following link:
Important information about online lectures and Moodle courses
The establishment and access control of the Moodle courses for the winter semester 2020/2021 takes place via the LSF registration procedure. Students who have registered for a course in the LSF will be informed of the access code for the associated Moodle courses via the LSF. All information about online events and course documents can be found in the Moodle courses. Further information on the LSF receipt function for students can be found at: https://wiki.uni-due.de/lsf/index.php/Handbuch_Belegfunktion
Our website gives you an overview of the institute’s activities in research and teaching and any prospect students an insight into the diverse options open to graduates of “Mechanical Engineering” with a focus on Ship and Offshore Technology.
The chair aims to provide students with a profound knowledge in the fields of ship and offshore technology (German or English language). The academic curriculum of Mechanical Engineering with emphasis on “Ship and Offshore Technology” within the department “Mechanical and Process Engineering” of the Faculty of Engineering is based on internationally accredited “Bachelor of Science” and “Master of Science” programmes. The core areas of teaching are hydrodynamics and ship design, marine power plants as well as the structural design and analysis of ships and offshore structures.
In research, the institute particularly concentrates on the fields of numerical and experimental hydrodynamics as well as fluid-structure interaction. Investigations are also made in the field of ship and offshore technology. At the institute’s own laboratories, experimental tests are conducted to determine the behaviour of multi-phase fluids (sloshing, slamming, cavitation, etc.). Moreover, numerical simulations in the maritime context are carried out (wave-induced motions and loads, propulsion, manoeuvring, fluid-structure interaction, etc.).
