The Marine Engineering MSc 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.
The course introduction, lectures and seminars consist of about 200 hours of formal tuition. The remainder consists of tutorials and time for students to undertake course work and individual work. The degree consists of three major parts, namely:
The programme is run in parallel with the MSc in Naval Architecture with students from both programmes working together on a Ship Design Exercise.
This MSc programme has been selected by the UK and Canadian Navies for the advanced training of its Marine Engineers. It also receives students from many other major maritime nations.
The MSc Marine Engineering has been accredited by the IET, RINA and IMarEST as meeting the further learning requirements, in full, for registration as a Chartered Engineer and Chartered Marine Engineer for a period of five years, from the 2012 student cohort intake.
These are given in core subjects, and are supported by a variety of coursework exercises and case studies. The student’s performance during the course is assessed on:
Each Marine Engineering Student is grouped with one or two Naval Architects to work on the design of a specific vessel. The Marine Engineer’s role is mainly to specify the propulsive machinery and all auxiliary equipment.
The individual project allows the student to demonstrate the capability to formulate a plan to solve a particular problem and then to execute that plan. Projects are often design, build and test or can be analytical in nature.
