Doctoral Program of Marine Engineering ITS has the main competencies in research, design, and system engineering in ships, floating structures and offshores. The study comprised one year course and 2 years of dissertation work and research. Research concentrations that we offer in our doctoral program are ship machinery systems, propulsion, electrical, pipings, navigation, sustainability, oil and gas operation risk management system, and safety systems that support all of these designs. With the competence available and offered by Marine Engineering Doctoral Program in ITS, the need of Marine Engineering research experts in supporting institutions, universities, and research bodies will be fulfilled.
