This programme is designed to enable you to develop your own interest in a specific marine-related area of study, and gain detailed knowledge and experience of research methods and management. You also have the opportunity to widen your knowledge in areas that are of relevance to an academic or professional career.
You take taught modules (including research methods) and undertake a research project. The research project comprises an original piece of work combining both experiment and theory. Your thesis should explore, in detail, some element of engineering or science as applied in the marine environment. Wherever appropriate, you will be encouraged to take advantage of our strong links with the marine industry to carry out your research project in an industrial context.
Normally an upper-second-class Honours degree or higher in a relevant engineering or science discipline. We also consider equivalent qualifications on a case-by-case basis.
