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 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 MEng Mechanical Engineering (Naval Engineering) degree is fully accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and offers a route to chartered status.

If you’d prefer a more general approach, or you’d like to focus on a different specialism, you can choose from our other pathways.
