The proposed MSc program places special emphasis on scientific research. It seeks to foster and embrace entirely new ideas and novel approaches to scientific discovery in the field of fossil fuels exploration and offshore constructions.
Further, the various areas of emphasis in the program aim to guide students into fields of study that are considered to be new in the Eastern Mediterranean region and offer significant opportunities for engaging in innovative research activities and learning. Specifically, issues incorporated in courses such as “Computational Mechanics and Applications”, “System Dynamics and Control“, “Process Modeling and Simulation“, “Analysis and Design of Offshore Mooring Structures“, provide important opportunities for MSc students to be involved with the various research activities that take place in Frederick University, as well as in other institutions worldwide.
Through such course-interactions, students will also acquire valuable experience by developing and implementing their own research projects.
The fact that issues related to fossil fuels exploration have still not been investigated in Cyprus offers a unique opportunity to students to conduct research that can result in useful deliverables regarding the promotion and establishment of energy in all educational and social levels.
