Course content

Why this course?

This programme allows graduate engineers or those from related disciplines to specialise in, or convert to, marine engineering.

Marine engineering involves the systems and equipment onboard marine vehicles including:

  • design
  • construction
  • installation
  • support

There’s a particular emphasis on propulsion and control systems.

High efficiency and low environmental impact of marine engines are the key factors in assuring economical operation and environmental protection in maritime transportation. This has important implications for both economic success and environmental impact.

The Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), a leading institution in Scotland, offers excellent teaching and research facilities in naval architecture, ocean and marine engineering, which expands your career opportunities in naval architecture, marine, offshore oil and gas industry.

You’ll study

The programme consists of three components:

  • instructional modules
  • group project
  • individual project (MSc only)

Group project

You’ll be part of a group of three to five people in ‘consultant teams’ for 10 weeks addressing a practical engineering problem. You’ll then have the opportunity to present the report to a panel of industrial experts.

This project will enhance your team working and communication skills. It also provides valuable access to industrial contacts.

It'll give you a good understanding of all aspects of research work. In addition, the technological study must be accompanied by a survey of the relevance and applicability of the findings to the maritime industries at large.

You'll learn efficient ways to gather information, to distribute workload and to delegate amongst the group, to analyse their results and to appreciate the broader implications of the whole project. In-depth technological studies will be accompanied by increasingly important competence in managerial skills, quality assurance and a sound appreciation of the economic, political, social and environmental issues crucial to professional success.

Individual project (MSc only)

MSc students will take on an individual dissertation on a topic of their own interest. The aim of the individual project is to develop your research skills and to combine many of the aspects learned from other modules within a specific topic. This'll be achieved by you carrying out work into a particular topic relating to your chosen theme and preparing a dissertation.

Facilities

We have excellent teaching facilities including:

  • Catalina - our departmental racing yacht
  • Kelvin Hydrodynamics Lab - the largest ship-model experiment tank in any UK university
  • Towing/wave tank exclusively for teaching purposes
  • Marine engine laboratory
  • Hydrogen fuel cell laboratory
  • Cutting-edge computer facilities
  • Industry standard software

Accreditation

This course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology, (IMarEST) on behalf of the UK Engineering Council.

Learning & teaching

There are two teaching semesters of 11 weeks each.

Course modules are delivered in the form of formal lectures supported with tutorials and laboratory experiments.

Assessment

There are two types of method for module assessment. One is course work assessment only, the other is exam assessment. For examined modules the final assessment mark consists of 30-40% course work marks and 60-70% exam marks.

Careers

As a graduate you’ll be prepared for a wide range of challenging and rewarding careers in the marine and related industries.

These include:

  • marine engineering machinery & system design
  • surveying
  • technical superintendence
  • project management
  • safety management
  • support services
  • classification societies
  • consultancy services
