If you enjoy solving problems and relish the idea of working as part of a professional team of naval architects, electrical engineers and marine scientists to provide mechanical solutions, this could be the course for you. It will give you an in-depth understanding of the scientific principles and advanced design technology as well as the problem solving and management skills required to be a successful marine engineer. This is one of the UK’s leading engineering departments, with a supportive staff team and excellent facilities, including engine test facilities, full marine engine room and bridge simulators, materials testing laboratories and digital design studios, which you have full use of in practical sessions. Links with national and international companies such as Bibby Line, Rolls Royce, Shell and Castrol mean that the course is tailored to the needs of employers and as an extension of this, we offer you the chance to undertake a year’s paid placement.
