The Graduate Diploma in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering will provide training in many aspects of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering not found in Mechanical, Electrical and Aerospace undergraduate degrees. It provides a firm foundation for subsequent study on the Department of Mechanical Engineering’s MSc Naval Architecture and MSc Marine Engineering programmes.
The Graduate Diploma in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering mirrors the structure of the third year of the BEng/MEng Engineering (Mechanical) programmes, including three modules from the Integrated Engineering Programme’s Ocean Engineering minor stream.
You will develop the fundamental analytical and design skills necessary to become a professional mechanical engineer in your chosen field of employment, whether in industry or in a consulting/research organisation.
You will be taught in a variety of ways, including lectures, tutorials, laboratory classes, computer workshops and project work. Along with our computing facilities we have extensive equipment and apparatus, housed in our main laboratories, which are used for taught laboratory classes and for your project work.
Subject-Specific Knowledge and understanding is acquired through a combination of lectures, tutorials, individual project and group projects, design projects, practical laboratory work and coursework assignments.
Intellectual, Academic and Research Skills are acquired through a combination of lectures, tutorials, group work, a major individual project, design projects, practical laboratory work and coursework assignments.
