Marine Engineering (Mechanical and Engineering options)

The course is concerned with the design, analysis and operation of machinery and systems for merchant and naval ships and submarines. The programme covers a wide range of engineering subjects relevant to the development and procurement of marine engineering, and the programme features two parallel mechanical and electrical streams.

Entry requirements

A minimum of a 2nd Class Honours degree from a UK university in a suitable engineering subject or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Candidates with qualifications in other subjects such as physics will be considered. A knowledge of fluids and thermodynamics is essential together with an understanding of basic electrical engineering. Ideally candidates will have had some experience of the marine environment.

Course modules

Core modules: advanced computer applications in engineering; applied thermodynamics and turbomachinery; power transmission and auxiliary machinery systems; vibrations, acoustics and control. Options: either: heat transfer and heat systems (mechanical stream); materials and fatigue (mechanical stream); or, electrical machines and power electronic systems (electrical stream); electrical power systems and electrical propulsion (electrical stream).

Assessment methods

This dynamic programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, coursework exercises and case studies. The taught courses are assessed through formal examination and coursework, the ship design exercise is assessed through a report and oral presentations, and the individual project is assessed through a report and presentation. Visits to the marine industry are also offered.
