Do you want to forge your future in the marine industry? Develop an advanced understanding of both marine engineering and naval architecture on a course that will equip you with a refined knowledge of nautical design and mechanics. Our accreditation means you’ll be ready to apply for Chartered Engineer status upon graduation, primed for a variety of careers in the marine industry.
Progress to Chartered Engineer status - upon graduation you’ll have fulfilled the education requirements.
Distinguish yourself professionally with a degree accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA), the Institute of Mechanical Engineering (IMechE) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) on behalf of the Engineering Council. The course fully satisfies the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
Increase your opportunities with a solid base in mechanical engineering and an emphasis on design, opening up a variety of possible careers.
Lay strong foundations for a successful career using our extensive industry links to secure a paid, one-year work placement. Gain the confidence, real-world know-how and vital industry experience employers are looking for.
Work with the latest industry-standard software, in our high specification laboratories. Both will help you develop a strong understanding of fundamental principles, while honing your skills at the same time.
Access the support you need. The Women in Technology Network (WiTNet) is a support network for all female students in technology and science subjects where women are in a minority.
Year 1 shares modules with the MEng courses in mechanical engineering. You’ll study design, a central theme of the course, introduced through case-study and problem-based learning, materials, mechanics, thermo-fluids, electrical principles, business and mathematics. You’ll also gain practical experience through a hands-on module in manufacturing methods.
In your second year you’ll study structures, fluids and thermodynamics, control, mathematics and business. You’ll learn about the stability and propulsion of marine craft, and about the marine environment. You’ll advance your existing design skills through application within a marine context.
Taking an optional placement year will provide you with valuable, paid, professional experience. A placement could lead to a company sponsoring your final year project and provide opportunities for your future employment. We’ll support you in finding a suitable position.
During this year you’ll use industry typical software and use design and computational methods to further develop your design skills. You’ll specialise in your chosen discipline of naval architecture, marine engineering and marine systems. Finally, you’ll carry out an in-depth investigation into a specialist topic of personal interest as part of your individual honours project.
Your final year refines the skills you have developed over the course of your studies, and includes additional technical modules. Finally, you'll work on an interdisciplinary project, drawing on your design and engineering abilities.
