About

Find out more information about Marine Engineering

Marine engineering is the discipline that deals with matters related to the design, innovation, construction and maintenance of seagoing vessels and navigation equipment. Marine engineers focus primary on the development and production of internal systems of boats, ships, or submarines. They are engaged in designing propulsion systems, auxiliary power machinery and operation equipment. Their technical responsibilities also include working on-board to maintain these systems.

Marine engineering is closely related to other fields such as naval architecture, nautical sciences, oceanographic engineering, or automotive and mechanical engineering. These study areas require very good knowledge of physics, and more specifically fluid mechanics, propulsion, applied mathematics, control engineering, and computer-aided design (CAD).

Students of marine engineering have the opportunity to specialise in certain areas including hydrodynamics, naval operations, design and logistics, resources and aquaculture and technology management. A graduate of marine engineering possesses good knowledge of mechanics, hydraulics, materials science and specialised computer software.

Professionals work in many different settings and industries, from marine engineering firms and the naval forces, to offshore oil and gas industries and mineral extraction companies, and marine consultancy and survey agencies. Typical job roles include ship engineer, travelling service engineer, sales engineer, port engineer, consultant in maritime accidents, casualties and claims.
