Combining studies in maritime engineering with management, this course will give you the expertise to manage engineering projects in the maritime industry. The Master of Maritime Engineering (Advanced) builds on your existing skillsets to improve the design, performance and research of maritime vessels and systems. Your studies will cover maritime engineering topics including ship design, propulsion systems and associated auxiliary machinery.

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.

If you are a professional engineer with a 4-year bachelor’s degree in any engineering discipline, this program will change the course of your career.

  • 1 Formulate solutions to complex technical problems in both the maritime and wider engineering fields using systematic analysis and processes.
  • 2 Manage maritime projects using systematic approaches, soft skills and teamwork in professional and lay domains.
  • 3 Critically investigate into current developments, advanced technologies and emerging issues to create innovative solutions for maritime and wider engineering fields.
  • 4 Practice the personal attributes of a professional engineer by implementing ethical and sustainable engineering practices.
  • Career outcomes

    This course is targeted at engineering professionals already in the workforce, who wish to pursue, or develop a career in the technical management of maritime engineering projects.
