The Marine Engineering (Mechanical and Electrical Options) programme from University College London (UCL) covers a wide range of engineering subjects relevant to the development and procurement of marine engineering.
The programme features two parallel streams; mechanical and electrical.
Students will learn about the analysis and design of propulsive systems and auxiliary equipment for the latest compliant marine vessel designs.
They will also study the use of computers in advanced engineering analysis. Students on the programme develop an understanding of elements of engineering. They also learn how to apply their knowledge in a systematic and effective manner, through both a group ship design exercise and an individual project.
The Marine Engineering MSc has been accredited by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST) and Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) as meeting the further learning requirements, in full, for registration as a Chartered Engineer for a period of five years, from the 2017 student cohort intake onwards.There is currently a global shortage of well-qualified marine engineers and consequently the job prospects are good.
Delivered by leading researchers and academics from across UCL, students will have a range of opportunities to network and keep abreast of emerging ideas. Collaborating with industry leaders such as BAE Systems and Rolls Royce and bodies such as the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) is key to our success.
We encourage students to develop networks throughout the programme and through the department’s careers programme, which includes employer-led events and individual coaching. We are unique in having a close relationship with the UK MoD as well commercial shipping companies and students benefit through industrial lectures, ship design projects and individual projects. We equip our graduates with the skills and confidence needed to play a creative and leading role in the professional and research community.
