What is marine technology?

Marine technology is ‘engineering for the sea’. We design and build structures on (and under) the sea. Cruise LinerWe have a more important role in the world around you than you might realise.

Thanks to marine technology, you can sail to another country for your holiday, enjoy a meal of fish, and buy goods transported thousands of miles by sea for your convenience. In fact, the maritime industry covers a huge range of different activities:

  • ship design, engineering and construction
  • offshore oil and mineral extraction, renewable energy
  • transport and leisure
  • ports and fisheries

Are you interested in making things and how they work?

Would you like to apply that interest to the marine environment – ships, offshore rigs and underwater vehicles? A degree in Marine Technology lets you do just that. You create designs for everything from cargo container ships to high-speed luxury yachts. For these degrees, you need to combine both academic and design skills.
