Marine Engineering

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.
