Program Overview

Are you captivated by the technical side of the marine environment? Our marine technologists are engineers focused on engineering for life at sea. As problem solvers, engineers design, create and use tools in every industry from nanotech to agritech. You will develop skills in the fundamentals of engineering as well as in marine engineering and naval architecture. Our students use laboratory sessions to reinforce learning and are taught by enthusiastic staff with strong industry links.

Our accredited BEng Marine Technology is designed to start your journey to becoming a qualified professional marine engineer. Our engineering courses rely strongly on practical work and you will develop your design skills throughout the course. We offer the opportunity to undertake a paid placement year to help consolidate and develop your engineering knowledge and many students receive job offers as a result of their time in industry.

Key Features

  • In the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), also known as the Shanghai Ranking we are eighth out of 50, and the highest ranked UK university, for Marine/Ocean Engineering.
  • Take advantage of a flexible course. The first year is common with BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering with Composites and BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering, allowing you to swap courses.
  • Progress onto the MEng (Hons) Marine Technology at the end of the second year if you are doing well.
  • Distinguish yourself professionally with a degree accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA), the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council. The course fully satisfies the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and partially satisfies the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). You'll need to undertake a programme of accredited Further Learning to complete the educational base for CEng. 
  • Increase your opportunities with a solid base in mechanical engineering and an emphasis on design, opening up a variety of possible careers.
  • Lay strong foundations for a successful career using our extensive industry links to secure a paid, one-year work placement. Gain the confidence, real-world know-how and vital industry experience employers are looking for.
  • Work with the latest industry-standard software, in our high specification laboratories. Both will help you develop a strong understanding of fundamental principles, while honing your skills at the same time.
  • Access the support you need. The Women in Technology Network (WiTNet) is a support network for all female students in technology and science subjects where women are in a minority. Led by students, and supported by staff, WiTNet helps women get the most from their studies.
  • Progress to Incorporated or Chartered Engineer status with further work experience and training - upon graduation you’ll have fulfilled the education requirements.
