The purpose of this unit is to provide students with an understanding of the principles of mechanics relating to marine power plant and associated structures and systems required by the Engineering Watch-keeper involved in operating such a plant.
This unit lays the foundation for Marine Engineers at operational level to comprehend principles of Applied Mechanics that will enable them to apply and manage these functions at Watch-keeping Engineer level.
This unit meet the requirements for knowledge, understanding and proficiency set out by the Maritime Training Package MAR50120, the STCW 2010 (Manila Amendments) and Table A-III/1 of the STCW code.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
