We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Maritime Engineering equip postgraduates with the skills to design and develop marine engineering systems on board ships, and on offshore platforms which facilitate their capability.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research-based MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Mechanical Engineering.
Courses in this field train you to devise and maintain mechanical, electrical and electronic operating systems across a wide range of maritime vehicles and offshore platforms. It includes floating devices and underwater pipeline networks.
You will undertake structural and hydrodynamic analysis of naval architecture and locomotives, investigating their control design, function and components (for example sensors, lasers, drilling systems). Condition monitoring is a key component of these courses, which encompasses not only systematic reliability, but health, safety and environmental sustainability.
Maritime law, regulation and management is also considered, particularly in relation to disaster response, international policy and economic practise.
Careers may include roles in the production of renewable energy such as wind, wave and tidal power, ship construction and maintenance, or even defence and security.
