Why this course?

Marine Technology is one of the pathways offered in the Sustainable Engineering programme.

The course is designed for experienced or newly qualified engineers in:

  • Naval Architecture
  • Marine Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering or related disciplines

This flexible programme combines study in specialist, advanced engineering technologies underpinned with training in sustainability. The programme has been developed with direct industrial involvement to provide you with a solid understanding of modern, sustainable engineering. As well as gaining an understanding of how sustainable engineering applies to Marine Technology, this programme will also provide you with key transferable skills to aid your employability.

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.

Studying at least three generic modules will meet the key requirements to attain Chartered Engineer status.

You must take three specialist modules if you are studying for the Postgraduate Certificate and up to five if you are studying for a Postgraduate Diploma or MSc.

Successful completion of six modules leads to the award of a Postgraduate Certificate.

Group project

You’ll work with a group of students from different pathways of the Sustainable Engineering programme. You’ll produce sustainable solutions to real-life industry problems. This project will include site visits, field trips and progress reports to industry partners.

Successful completion of eight modules and the group project leads to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma.

Individual project

MSc students will study a selected topic in depth and submit a thesis.

Successful completion of eight modules, the group project and an individual project leads to the award of an MSc.
