B.Eng. Marine Technology with Offshore Engineering (Hons)

School of Marine Science and Technology, Newcastle University

Marine technology is thriving worldwide, and in many areas there are acute shortages of graduates with the right skills.

We offer a range of degrees in this area, applying science and engineering principles in a marine context, covering everything from oil rigs to cruise liners.

We have a distinguished reputation amongst employers, having taught marine technology for over a century, and our graduates are consistently in high demand with a wide range of employers.

Our professionally accredited three-year Offshore Engineering BEng Honours degree is geared to the demands of the offshore engineering industry, but with a solid basis in engineering fundamentals.

The offshore world has traditionally been associated with the oil and gas industry, but the expertise of offshore engineers now extends to offshore renewables such as wind farms and tidal energy capture devices, and other sectors such as thermal energy conversion or seabed mineral recovery.

You will gain the ability to design and produce fixed and floating offshore oil and gas production installations, and the crafts which service these and other offshore resource developments.

* In Stages 1 and 2, you study many shared modules, which provide all of our students with a firm foundation in the subject. Topics include ships' internal systems and the design, production and operation of ships.
* In Stage 3, you take offshore engineering topics such as marine structures, computational fluid dynamics and offshore mechanics.

Quality and ranking
The quality of the Marine Technology study experience at Newcastle is recognised with an overall student satisfaction score of 96% in the 2012 National Student Survey.
