Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Undergraduate Degrees

Push the boundaries of engineering through our holistic marine engineering programmes.

What is Marine Engineering?

Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture are, in simple terms, ‘Engineering for the sea’.

You'll study a range of marine engineering systems; from a ship's main propulsion engines, to auxiliary machinery. Alongside this, you will investigate how pumps and power, water, air and hydraulics systems work, whilst exploring the mechanical systems of a variety of marine constructions, such as oil platforms and subsea systems.
