MSc Marine Engineering

University of Strathclyde

This programme allows graduate engineers or those from related disciplines to specialise in, or convert to, marine engineering. Marine engineering involves the systems and equipment onboard marine vehicles including: design; construction; installation; support. There’s a particular emphasis on propulsion and control systems.

High efficiency and low environmental impact of marine engines are the key factors in assuring economical operation and environmental protection in maritime transportation. This has important implications for both economic success and environmental impact.

The Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), a leading institution in Scotland, offers excellent teaching and research facilities in naval architecture, ocean and marine engineering, which expand your career opportunities in naval architecture, marine, offshore oil and gas industry.


There are two types of method for module assessment. One is course work assessment only, the other is exam assessment. For examined modules the final assessment mark consists of 30-40% course work marks and 60-70% exam marks.


As a graduate you’ll be prepared for a wide range of challenging and rewarding careers in the marine and related industries. These include: marine engineering machinery & system design; surveying; technical superintendence; project management; safety management; support services; classification societies; consultancy services.
