Introducing your degree
Maritime Engineering Science is an MSc course designed for graduates, or similarly qualified, with an engineering, scientific or mathematical background, who desire to pursue a career in maritime sector. An introductory module is provided at the start to give students the fundamental knowledge necessary for them to succeed in the course. The masters course in Maritime Engineering Science / Advanced Materials enables the students to specialise in the in-depth study of engineering materials in addition to core naval architecture subject areas.
This course will enable you to develop a fundamental understanding of maritime engineering. Core modules are particularly relevant to the advanced materials theme where you will explore composites, titanium and aluminium and understand their selection and engineering for maritime applications.
The year is divided into two semesters. Each semester, in addition to a set of specialist modules, you will also have opportunity to select from a range of option modules including marine structures, finite element analysis and composite engineering design. You will also learn the broader principles of marine safety, environmental engineering and management.
The last four months will put your newly developed knowledge into practice. You will complete a major research project and take advantage of our many facilities, including a state-of-the-art Transportation Systems Research Laboratory and wind tunnel complex to support your experimental work.
As part of the normal requirements of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST).
The maritime sector provides many and varied career opportunities in engineering and project management related roles. Maritime Engineering Science graduates are in strong demand with good starting salaries and excellent career progression opportunities.
Our graduates work across many different organisations. The Solent region around Southampton is the main UK hub for the maritime sector with organisations such as Lloyd’s Register, Carnival, BMT Nigel Gee, Maritime and Coastguard agency and many others based nearby. Organisations such BAE Systems, QinetiQ and Babcock support primarily the defence sector and employ a good number of our graduates. The offshore and marine renewable developments are offering excellent prospects both to work in the UK (locally, London or Aberdeen) or worldwide in places such as Singapore, Houston or Perth, etc.
The University of Southampton has a long history of tradition, prestige and success, having just celebrated 100 years of its Highfield Campus.
A founding member of the Russell Group of research-intensive universities, the University is ranked in the Top 20 UK universities in the Complete University Guide, 2020 and is also a three-times winner of the Queen's Anniversary Prize.
The University is spread across five campuses in Southampton, one in Winchester and an engineering campus in Malaysia. Each campus has its own community and personality, world-leading facilities and specialisms.
Students have the choice of 200 taught courses and 90 research courses to study at postgraduate level, which range from business to science, and engineering to art.
The Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton is home to Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Engineering, Electronics and Computer Science, Physics and Astronomy, and the Zepler Institute for Photonics...
