Introduction to the Marine Engineering MSc programme
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:
- Lectures and seminars, coursework exercises and case studies run concurrently from October until March followed by formal examinations.
- The Ship Design Exercise commences in April and is completed by the end of June.
- The Individual Project is undertaken in July, August and September.
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.
Phase 2 - Ship Design
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.

Phase 3 - Individual Project
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.
