Tijdsduur 100 hours
Entry level Bachelor
Cost £1200


To provide students with an understanding of propulsion and auxiliary systems and to introduce marine engineering equipment demonstrating its function within marine engineering plant. To give students an appreciation of the process of the marine engineering systems design and how physical constraints impact upon design.

Outline Of Syllabus

The lecture material will cover:

The need for marine engineering systems
The physics of ship propulsion
An introduction to prime-mover systems
An introduction to propulsive systems
An introduction to marine electrical systems
Auxiliary systems
Marine engineering system integration

The module will include preschool reading, examples, a preschool assignment, an intensive school (five days), and a post school assignment.

Pre-school material

Normally requires 50 hours of study.

Pre-school material enables you to revise and review prerequisite material so that the intensive school can be run efficiently and effectively. The materials will be available six to eight weeks before the intensive school takes place.

You will undertake a pre-school assignment (30% of the module mark) which you will submit on the first day of the intensive school.

One week intensive school

Has an approximate contact time of 35 hours.

The intensive school includes lectures, case studies, tutorials, presentations, and discussions.

You will sit an examination (40% of the module mark) during this intensive teaching week.

Post-school material

Requires 15 hours of study.

This material consolidates the module learning.

Post-school material involves completion of a post-school assignment (30% of the module mark) which you will submit eight weeks after the intensive school.

Teaching Location: University College London Campus

*The start and end date stated above is approximate.


You should have a minimum of:

  • a Second Class Honours degree in Engineering or equivalent with a strong quantitative component
  • at least three years of relevant work experience in the marine sector or similar

You'll also need to provide a personal statement and reference.
