Ship Science / Offshore Engineering with Industrial Placement Year

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 will provide you with the technical skills needed to analyse the structural designs and operations of fixed and floating structures, from offshore jackets to semisubmersibles. In your third and fourth year you will study ship manoeuvring and control, marine law, and maritime robotics. This course is ideally suited to someone interested in working in the offshore or ocean energy sectors. 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.
