About The Master's Degree in Offshore Engineering
(optional specialisation of the Master’s in Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering)



The exploitation of off-shore resources will play a strategic role in the future of mankind. A sustainable valorization of renewable and conventional off-shore energy sources may give a relevant contribution to balance the overall energy demand. The exploitation of marine bioresources combined to the improvement of coastal infrastructure can be a key to the economic development. Improved off-shore technologies will be needed to realize such scenario.

A growing demand for the development and installation of innovative off-shore structures, systems and facilities as well as of coastal infrastructures is experienced. Specific technical problems arise when off-shore structures and plants need to be designed and installed, also concerning safety and environmental issues that arise when operating in the marine context. The challenge for a sustainable exploitation of off-shore resources requires highly qualified professionals, prepared to operate in an international context, ready to cope with advanced design techniques and to tackle the improvement and optimization of off-shore operations in harsh environments.

The programmes in Off-Shore Engineering offered by the University of Bologna were built to meet these needs. Three different programmes are offered as two-year Master's (second cycle degree – Laurea Magistrale) entirely taught in English and officially recognized under the “Bologna Process”. Each programme allows to gain specific skills on off-shore engineering from a different perspective: chemical engineering, civil engineering and environmental engineering.

The programmes were designed in the framework of an intense cooperation with companies active in the off-shore sector. The topics of the courses offered were specifically declined to meet both the requirements of a high-ranked engineering preparation and to answer the professional needs of the sector. Participation of professionals in lectures, internships and graduation thesis in companies are available to the students choosing these programmes.


About The University of Bologna


The Alma Mater Studiorum, the oldest university in the Western world, paves the way for innovation through an increasingly rich programme catalogue, cutting-edge research and a constant and increasingly broad international perspective.

Since its origins in 1088, Alma Mater has been student-centred hosting prominent figures from science and the arts. Based in five campuses (Bologna, Cesena, Forlì, Ravenna, Rimini), with a branch in Buenos Aires, it offers a teaching catalogue diversified and tailored to the needs of present-day society: over 200 degree programmes among its 33 Departments and 11 Schools are offered to over 81,000 students. 5,000 graduates are enrolled in PhDs and 3rd cycle programmes.

As a comprehensive research university Alma Mater invests in the multidisciplinary cross-cultural approach and in the inseparable connection between research and teaching. One of the most active universities leading and participating in European research and academic cooperation projects, Bologna has formed knowledge alliances with industry and public/private organizations. It is a hub of international networks. Beyond its close European links, it enjoys multiple connections with America, Africa, Asia and Australia.

The mission of the Department of Civil, Chemical, Environmental and Materials Engineering (DICAM) is to create and develop advanced research in the areas of civil, chemical, environmental and materials engineering, starting from evaluation, design, construction and service of manmade structures and infrastructures (including industrial production facilities), through the study and characterization of the constituent materials, up to the environmental analysis and impact assessment of the footprint on the territory and the environment.

More than 320 people currently team up to DICAM research activities: approximately 105 academic staff, 45 technical, administrative and librarian staff and 174 Ph.D. students, research assistants and fellows.

The Department is based in the two main locations of the School of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Bologna, the historical building of downtown Bologna and the new building in the strategic urban development of Via Terracini, in the close outskirt of the historical downtown, which houses the largest part of the Laboratory facilities and many modern offices for Researchers and Professors. However, staff’s activity also takes place at the Campuses of Cesena and Ravenna. The Department encompasses 11 specialized laboratories, which represent a large propulsive element to the research in all the specific disciplines, as well as an essential element for the teaching activities.

The high quality, interdisciplinary nature and collaborative work of the research groups enable the Department to provide, worldwide, an effective answer to the demands of today’s modern society and of professional world.

The Department faces many challenges for its future. Continuing its quest for excellence, with real impact in science and technology, is a clear goal. This goal relies on people and this is the most important asset of DICAM. Now and for the future our mission is to make the Department an ever more challenging place to be for young researchers. For all of them, our warmest thanks for the privilege of leading an enthusiastic team.
