The first two semesters lay the foundations of your engineering expertise allowing you to choose the specialisation Maritime Technology. From the third semester onwards, you can create your personal profile in the specialisation Maritime Technologies with your choice of specialist areas by expanding your knowledge of electrical engineering and/or mechanical engineering more deeply, as well as starting your first project and contributing your own ideas. From the fourth semester onwards, you can choose between the subject areas of marine technology, wind energy and/or marine energies. The final semester is set aside for the professional practice phase and your bachelor's thesis. A variety of relevant practical exercises and practical placements form part of the curriculum. The study of Maritime Technologies promotes interdisciplinary work and networked thinking.
Maritime Technologies- Marine Engineering – Wind Energy – Marine Energies
In our modern world, life without electricity is unimaginable. And in that context, the sea is an energy source that should not be underestimated, one that can be put to use in many ways, as it contains immeasurable power waiting to be harnessed. This is already being done in offshore wind farms and in the future also in wave-energy and current-energy power plants. The extreme environmental conditions of the open sea place high demands on technology and maintenance, requiring innovation and continuing development. This promises exciting career prospects and new fields of research with innovative tasks. This is what the Maritime Technologies specialisation will prepare you for. Leading research institutions such as the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI), the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems (IWES) and the fk-wind: Institute for Wind Energy participate in the programme, guaranteeing practical relevance and cutting-edge course content.
Why choose this programme
High practical relevanceCooperation arrangements with research institutions ensure the high quality of the teaching and learning and provides early insights into practice in the field.
Excellent freedom of choiceIn terms of subject and topic expertise, you put together your own course of studies according to your interests and preferences.
Early project studiesFrom the third semester onwards, you work consistently on your own projects. Here, too, you can choose between marine technology, wind energy and marine energy.
We want to make sustainable and clean use of the oceans
Activities, research and professional profile
As a graduate of Maritime Technologies, exciting and diverse fields of employment involving the technological use of the sea are open to you. The wind energy sector enables you to work in the development, planning and operation of turbines and farms on land and at sea. A specialisation in the offshore sector opens up further exciting challenges for you. Marine energy and marine technology prepare you for research and development as well as for industry. With your expert knowledge as an engineer of maritime technologies, you will be able to meet the special requirements of the areas of environmental monitoring, service and maintenance, and other services. After graduation, you will be qualified to enrol in a consecutive master's programme at a German university or abroad. Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences offers the master's programmes Wind Energy Technology, Process Engineering and Energy Technology and Embedded Systems Design.

Your strengths and interests
A broad, knowledge base in engineering will strengthen your academic success and the prospects for a good academic and professional career. The internationally recognised Maritime Technologies specialisation builds on this principle and qualifies you as an engineer specialised in the application of cutting-edge maritime technologies with great development potential. Depending on your strengths and interests, you can create an individual subject profile in marine technology, wind energy or marine energies and choose between a more mechanical or a more electrical engineering specialisation. 'Learning by doing' is the key method: practical work in laboratory and project groups and excursions promote your independence alongside other students, as well as your team skills – important qualities for a successful career start.
