If I'd like to land a job with these keywords, which master degree should I apply for?
I'm talking about oil&gas, marine renewables, tidle energy, wind energy...

What's your undergrad degree in? You don't need a specific masters to work in any of those fields.

I have an italian Civil Engineering BSc.
One thing I can't understand is the IMarEST CEng accreditation.
Does the undergrad degree has to be accredited, like for the Civil Engineering bodies?

Civil is fine for a lot of those areas. Mechanical would have been fine, too, and maybe even a little more appropriate for some of them like ROVs.

There aren't many masters degrees that cater to all that you have listed. The closest that I could think of would be subsea engineering or ocean technology.

I'm not sure about the IMarEST accreditation. Lots of people in the fields you have mentioned will go for chartership with the IMechE or IStructE depending on what their undergraduate degree was.

Yes, I lack Mechanical Engineering fundamentals.
I'm looking at offshore/subsea courses, but I don't want to be stuck in a oil&gas specific one.
Cranfield, Strathclyde, Robert Gordon, Newcastle, Southampton...
Maybe I should highlight structural modules, CFD etc.

Your BSc in Civil Eng is adequate but if you want to specialize you can do an MSc in Renewable Energy or Subsea Engineering, which are pretty standard courses for graduate engineers. I'm not mentioning Petroleum Engineering, since you're saying you don't want to be stuck in an oil & gas specific course. I'd even say Oceanography but that is more like pure scientific and lacks the engineering/technical stuff.
