Course summary

This professionally accredited four-year Small Craft Technology MEng Honours degree includes a year of advanced study at master's level, leading to Chartered Engineer status.

Course overview

The first three years of this degree follow the same programme as our Small Craft Technology BEng Honours degree.

It focuses on the design and operation of small crafts, specialist marine products like yachts and catamarans, which form a significant proportion of the UK marine industry.

It includes a fourth year of master's-level study, in which you study advanced specialist modules such as:

  • high-speed and advanced craft
  • ship performance at sea
  • advanced hydrodynamics

You'll work as part of an interdisciplinary team to complete an extensive group project in your fourth year.

This develops your technical expertise and equips you with professional-standard skills which lead directly to Chartered Engineer status.

Professional accreditation

This degree is professionally accredited by the Engineering Council through the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST).

This means future employers will recognise the quality of your degree because it meets high professional standards. It also means both our BEng and MEng degrees provide a pathway to becoming a chartered engineer, chartered scientist, chartered marine scientist or an incorporated engineer.

Teaching methods

Contact hours will be a combination of:

  • lectures
  • seminars from invited speakers in industry and academia
  • practical work

Work placement
