PROGRAMME 
OVERVIEW

Newcastle University

Bachelor of Engineering with Honours
in Marine Engineering

Marine Engineering deals with the design, construction, operation and maintenance of engines, turbines and plants on board sailing vessels, marine systems, rigs and other floating structures. It also undertakes the exploration of new technologies such as superconductivity, fuel cells and hydrodynamics to increase the efficiency of marine vessels and structures. These new possibilities also create more exciting prospects in the industry.

This degree programme is concerned with engineering challenges specific to the marine environment such as the propulsion and auxiliary machinery of ships, and the power and control systems of other marine constructions such as oil platforms, sub-sea systems, as well as underwater and offshore vehicles.

Marine Engineers excel in various sectors of the maritime industry working on and alongside commercial ships, passenger liners, navy vessels, submersibles, pleasure yachts, cruise ships, and oil rigs.
