Maritime design is an important theme throughout this course, which meets the core technical requirements for accreditation and allows graduates to embark on gaining their chartered status. The first two years of the BEng Ship Science course will provide you with a broad-based knowledge of engineering methods for the design and maintenance of marine systems, and the course content is identical to the course content of our MEng Ship Science course. In the final year you will also conduct an individual research project of your choice and a small-group concept design project.
Year 1: Computational methods for ship design; electrical systems; fluid mechanics; graphical communications and marine transportation; mathematics for engineering sciences; mechanics; mechanics of solids; modelling and computing; properties of materials; ship studies and thermodynamics. Year 2: Computing (Fortran); fluid mechanics; management 1; marine engineering; materials; mathematics for aerospace and ship science; naval architecture dynamics; resistance and propulsion; ship design; ship design and economics; ship functional design; ship production technology and ship structures. Year 3: Mandatory modules: management 2; manufacturing with metals; marine craft concept design; marine hydrodynamics; materials service performance; ship control systems and individual project; plus a choice from a wide range of optional modules.
