Course summary

No environment on Earth is as demanding as the sea. Designing and building vessels and structures that can withstand the wind, waves and salt exposure requires special education and experience. The modern world’s global commerce is largely enabled by the ocean-going technological marvels created by Marine Engineers. This programme has been designed to give the student a broad knowledge of marine engineering, covering essential engineering topics such as mathematics, engineering science and materials, as well as essential managerial knowledge and design methodologies. Students will embark on several design projects throughout the course where they will be able to use Computer Aided Design along with other industry based software to showcase their new found knowledge and skills.


The course includes the following subjects: Level 4, Engineering Mathematics, Engineering Science 1, Engineering Materials, CAD (computer-aided design) Techniques and Designs, Naval Architecture, Management Techniques in Marine Engineering, Level 5 Engineering Science 2, Advanced CAD and FEA (finite element analysis), Engineering Design, Composite Materials for the Marine Environment, Engine Technology and Marine Propulsion Systems, Project.
