UCL (University College London)
This programme is designed to give students a broad range of experience in marine survey practice, including the acquisition and processing of hydrographic data, positioning, and charting. The programme is offered jointly with the Port of London Authority, which contributes through teaching and practical work aboard its survey vessels.
The minimum entry requirements are an upper 2nd Class Honours degree in a cognate subject or related discipline, including geography, geology, civil engineering, mathematics, physics, marine biology or marine studies, from a UK university or the equivalent from an overseas institution. Extensive work experience covering related areas will be considered. As preparation for the course, if you are offered a place, you will be expected to revise your knowledge of mathematics in certain topics such as trigonometry, geometry and differential calculus if you have not studied these for some time. The most comprehensive text to use would be Engineering Mathematics by K.A. Stroud (6th Edition), but many other text books covering an equivalent level of mathematics are also available.
Core modules: mapping science; GIS principles and technology; principles and practice of surveying; data Analysis. Options: hydrographic applications; management/group project; ocean and coastal zone management; positioning.
The programme is delivered through lectures, seminars, practicals, tutorials, and field courses including periods on Port of London Survey vessels. It is supported by a series of external speakers from industry and visits to industrial and government establishments. Assessment is through coursework, unseen written examinations, oral presentation, and the dissertation.
