Our courses provide you with the fundamentals of engineering, alongside design modules throughout your degree, which enable you to apply your knowledge and develop the skills you need to become a successful engineer. This course enables you to specialise in core naval architecture subject areas, with an in-depth study of engineering materials. Your third and fourth years will focus on how materials are used in the design and manufacture of marine craft and structures. This course is ideally suited to someone with an interest in the manufacturing of advanced marine crafts, such as super yachts. The Industrial Placement Year is an additional year-long module that allows you to apply for a placement with an engineering-based organisation. The Industrial Placement Year will be taken between your second and third years, extending your degree to five years. During your year-long placement, you will fulfil the role of a trainee engineer on a full-time basis. We offer our students a dynamic learning environment; your course will include a combination of lectures, laboratory classes, tutorials, private study, and individual and group projects.
