About this course

Learn to apply your engineering knowledge to the oceans, and design cutting-edge ships and other marine craft. We have collaborated with the Royal Navy to develop this 4-year, integrated Masters degree. Here you'll develop mechanical engineering skills, then specialise in engineering for a marine environment. This degree will equip you to work as in engineer in the Navy as well as the private sector.

Naval engineering is both a craft and a science. This course covers both aspects and prepares you for a successful career in this specialised field.

This 4-year degree provides the core topics you need to master mechanical engineering. You'll specialise in:

  • naval engineering

  • ship science

  • marine craft concept design

You'll use our design workshops, studios and facilities including the largest university towing tank in the UK.

As part of this course you can:

  • specialise in areas that interest you, from offshore engineering to advanced management

  • showcase your work in our annual Engineering Design Show

  • take an additional year-long paid placement in an engineering organisation

  • visit sites to experience engineering in practice

During your studies you'll have the opportunity to go on a work placement to boost your academic performance, and prepare for your career.

We're a designated university for the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme (DTUS).

This course is fully accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and offers a route to chartered status.
