Course content

This course gives you an understanding of marine engineering and its practice. It covers topics associated with Naval Architecture (hull and propulsor) and Marine Engineering (machinery).

The course develops your practical skills to enable you to:
-Design, select, analyse and install marine propulsion and transmission systems
-Produce mathematical and computer modelling of marine machinery and engineering systems
-Design and analyse control systems for marine machinery
-Use mathematics and physics appropriate to marine technology
-Develop engineering solutions to practical problems
-Test design ideas through laboratory work or simulation with technical analysis
-Critically evaluate results
-Integrate and analyse information from a variety of sources

Teaching consists of lectures, practical sessions, seminars and personal supervision covering a variety of topics in marine engineering.

You will choose an individual dissertation project. This may be theoretical, experimental or the development of a simulation model of marine engineering systems. It can include ships' propulsion and power transmission systems. Our research strengths include:
-Design of diesel-electric hybrid propulsion configurations
-Engine emission prediction and simulation
-Online ship performance monitoring and optimisation
-Ballast water management

You benefit from participating in projects sponsored directly by industry partners whenever they are available.

Delivery

Six taught modules worth 100 credits are delivered through semester one and/or two. A dissertation research project, worth 80 credits, is undertaken across the three semesters.

The course is delivered by the School of Marine Science and Technology.

It is also available with a preliminary year if you do not meet the entry criteria for the one year MSc course.

Accreditation

Our 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 Engineering Council. This means that you are automatically recognised as satisfying the educational requirements leading to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

The Royal Institution of Naval Architects is an internationally renowned professional institution whose members are involved at all levels in the design, construction, maintenance and operation of marine vessels and structures. Members of RINA are widely represented in industry, universities and colleges, and maritime organisations in over 90 countries.

IMarEST is the first Institute to bring together marine engineers, scientists and technologists into one international multi-disciplinary professional body.

Our accreditations give you an additional benchmark of quality to your degree, making you more attractive to graduate employers. It can also open the door to higher-level jobs, most of which require Chartered Engineer status.
