About this course

We've changed some parts of this course for the 2020 to 2021 academic year due to coronavirus (COVID-19). These changes may affect how we'll teach you and which modules you'll take.

The programme specification addendum (PDF, 1,328 KB) has all the latest details.

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 master's degree. Here you'll develop mechanical engineering skills, then specialise a marine environment. This naval engineering 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

  • take a work placement to boost your academic performance, and prepare for your career

  • showcase your work in our annual Engineering Design Show

  • visit sites to experience engineering in practice

You can take this course with an additional, year-long, paid placement. Apply with UCAS code H3H5 for the Industrial Placement Year option.

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

This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as meeting the academic requirement, in full, for Chartered Engineer registration.
