Subject

Maritime technology

Ports are the economic drivers of a countrys economy and ships are the principal mode of delivery. As countries develop and their economies grow, reliance on ships and ports also grows. Emerging and established economies require graduates who have developed a solid knowledge and understanding of operating a port successfully and managing the ships that deliver to the ports.Studying shipping and port management at Southampton Solent University will help you to capitalise on these opportunities and equip you with the balance of modern shipping knowledge and port management expertise sought after by employers in the industry. Our maritime academic group is comprised of staff from a wide range of maritime and shipping backgrounds, ensuring that teaching combines academic theory with a wealth of commercial knowledge. The key aim of the shipping and port management degree is for students to develop their knowledge, understanding and skills to prepare them for their future careers and give them the best opportunities to begin their chosen career path.As a direct benefit of our accreditation from the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS) and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), students will receive exemptions from the academic requirements for membership at either chartered member or membership level of CILT. In the same way, students will be entitled to exemptions from two of the ICS exams (Professional Qualifying Examinations) required to gain ICS membership (an internationally recognised mark of professionalism in the shipping industry).

Top job areas of graduates

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This course sits within a very specialised subject area for the naval industries, and there aren't many students who take this subject each year. For those who did last year, jobs as engineers or ship officers were much the most common. As the UK has always been a seafaring nation, and the naval industry is still important here, starting salaries can be good (the average was £24,500 last year) and, surprise surprise, based in port towns, so this is great if you'd like to be near (or on!) the sea.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
