Marine Technology Undergraduate Degrees offered:
From surfboards to supertankers, cruise liners to cargo containers, marine technologists are responsible for designing, building, operating, maintaining and recycling ships, vessels and other structures on or under the sea’s surface.
Marine technologists rely on the principles of mathematics, science and engineering to solve technical problems, and to create designs ranging from delicate automatic control systems to robustoil production platforms, high-speed luxury yachts to offshore patrol vessels, as well as vessels thatoperate under the sea (remote and manned).
Marine technology is thriving worldwide, and there are acute shortages of skilled personnel. The result is that the marine industry has a large number of well-paid jobs available for highly qualified engineers.
Studying Marine Technology at Newcastle you will have access to our research vessel for seagoing experience, and regularly use our workshop and engineering research facilities. Our degree programmes are closely linked to the research specialisms of our staff. At Stages 3 and 4 of your degree, their research feeds directly into the teaching programme to guarantee your module choices cover the latest issues affecting the industry.
BSc and BEng undergraduate degrees last for three years. Applicants for the BEng degree can transfer to MEng up to the end of second year, Stage 2, and continue for a further year or they can apply for direct entry to the MEng programme.
