Ship Science with Industrial Placement Year

Ship Science covers all aspects of maritime engineering, including the design, construction and testing of the vessels and offshore structures that use the ocean for transport, recreation and the harnessing of marine resources. This integrated masters degree covers the theoretical principles of naval architecture and marine engineering alongside practical laboratories, design modules and projects. The first two years are the same for both the BEng and MEng Ship Science, providing you with a thorough understanding of the science and engineering associated with marine vehicles, structures, and their design. At the end of your second year, you can choose to study one of six specialist pathways, or maintain a broad-based degree. The specialist pathways are: Advanced Computational Engineering, Marine Engineering and Autonomy, Naval Architecture, International Naval Architecture, Ocean Energy and Offshore Engineering, or Yacht and High Performance Craft. In your third year you will extend your knowledge through advanced naval architecture modules, and carry out an individual project, bringing together the concepts and skills you have learned. During your fourth year, you will take advanced modules and participate in a group design project, applying your engineering knowledge to solve a real-world problem. Your Industrial Placement Year will enhance your employability, with an additional year-long paid placement in an engineering organisation. You will be able to apply the knowledge and skills that you developed during the early years of your degree, developing vital professional knowledge and skills to prepare you to become a professional engineer after graduation. You will have access to extensive facilities, which include dedicated student design studios and workshops, a 138m towing tank with wave maker, wind tunnel complex and a professional manufacturing centre. Our courses are fully accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, the Institution of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology, and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, and offer a route to chartered status.
