This programme is offered by the Marine Technology Education Consortium (MTEC), a collaboration between four UK universities. It is designed specifically for graduates and their employers in the marine industry and teaches new and advanced technical and managerial skills, in conjunction with business and management applications. Each module is delivered by a combination of distance learning and a one-week intensive school.
The MSc and Diploma are approved/ accredited for students seeking CEng registration by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Royal Institution of Naval Architects. The programme also links in with the Rolls-Royce graduate training programme.
Eight technology streams are available for those studying for the MSc or Diploma: naval architecture; marine engineering; offshore engineering; small craft design; classification and survey; conversion and repair; defence; and marine renewable energy. In addition, a general programme in marine technology may be followed by students who do not wish to specialise in a particular area.
