Advance your engineering career with the technical and management skills to work in maritime sectors. The Graduate Diploma in Maritime Engineering is designed to provide engineering graduates with in-depth exposure to a wide range of subjects relevant to maritime engineering systems.

This program is aimed at engineering professionals already in the workforce, but with limited exposure to the maritime engineering sector. Graduates follow careers in technical engineering and management across a broad range of maritime sectors.

Our specialist coursework is designed by experienced maritime engineers and researchers. Delivered through interactive online study resources, this course provides a flexible learning mode for students who wish to continue working while studying.

  • 1 Develop solutions to complex technical problems in maritime and wider engineering fields using systematic analysis and processes.
  • 2 Organise maritime projects using systematic approaches, soft skills and teamwork in professional and lay domains.
  • 3 Evaluate current maritime engineering trends and practices using evidence-based research.
  • Course structure

    Fees & scholarships

    Domestic students

    Options for this course

    This is a full-fee course, which means you’ll need to pay the full amount for your studies. Commonwealth Supported Places are not available in this course. However, there are still support options available for eligible students to help you manage the cost of studying this course.
