Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses
Our courses provide you with the fundamentals of engineering, alongside design modules throughout your degree, which enable you to apply your knowledge and develop the skills you need to become a successful engineer. This course enables you to specialise in core naval architecture subject areas, with an in-depth study of engineering materials. Your third and fourth years will focus on how materials are used in the design and manufacture of marine craft and structures. This course is ideally suited to someone with an interest in the manufacturing of advanced marine crafts, such as super yachts. We offer our students a dynamic learning environment; your course will include a combination of lectures, laboratory classes, tutorials, private study, and individual and group projects.
In years one and two you will concentrate on the fundamentals of engineering and gain the skills and understanding required to use information technology in an engineering context. In year three, you will have the opportunity to specialise or retain a broad-based study path through a wide selection of subject modules. You will also undertake an individual project. In year four, you will do a group design project and take specialist module options. Core and compulsory modules: Year 1: Mathematics for Engineering and the Environment, Electrical and Electronics Systems, ThermoFluids, Design and Computing, Basic Naval Architecture, Mechanics, Structures and Materials. Year 2: Engineering Management and Law, Systems Design and Computing for Ships, Mathematics for Engineering and the Environment Part II, Hydrodynamics and Seakeeping, Ship Powering and Control Surfaces, Materials and Structures, Ship Structural Design and Production, Ship Design and Economics. Year 3: Individual Project, Manufacturing and Materials, Marine Craft Concept Design, Marine Engineering, Ship Manoeuvring and Control, Marine Hydrodynamics, Marine Structures. Year 4: Group Design Project, Marine Law and Management, Microstructural Engineering for Transport Applications, Failure of Materials and Components, Marine Safety and Environmental Engineering, Marine Law and Management, Marine Structures in Fluids.
