About the course

Marine and offshore engineers are responsible for the selection, deployment and commissioning of machinery, machinery systems and operational systems for merchant and naval vessels plus offshore floating and fixed vessels/structures. Building on core fundamental engineering units, this degree specialises in associated mechanical and mechanical-electrical power generation, machinery and operational systems. This course may involve practical work on board MV Bluefiin

The two specialisations available are:

Marine Systems – focuses on the selection, deployment and commissioning of machinery, machinery systems and operational systems designed and manufactured in support of the ship and underwater vehicle industry.

Offshore Systems – specialising in selection, deployment and commissioning of machinery, machinery systems and operational systems designed and manufactured in support of the offshore oil and gas industry.

Course structure

The course consists of four years of study with eight subjects per year. Students are able to major in one of the following specialisations: Offshore Systems or Marine Systems. Students meeting the required standards of achievement throughout the course may qualify for an Honours award.
