BScEng (Hons) in Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture

Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture degree program is designed to comply with international and local accreditation requirements. Under this programme, students undertake modules such as Mathematical Fundamentals for Engineers, Engineering Mechanics, and Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics in the areas of Mathematics, Basic Science and Computing within the 1st and 2nd semesters. They have to undertake 12 modules and cover 36 credits in here. From 3rd semester onwards students undertake more discipline-specialized modules and practice such as Hydrostatics and Stability of Marine Vehicles, Principles and Application of Marine Machinery, Marine Transmission and Propulsion Systems, Maritime Law and Safety and Ship Logistics. The modules such as Undergraduate Design Project (CO), Small Craft Design (CO) and Individual Research Project (TE) provide opportunity for students to conduct investigations on comprehensive research studies.

The degree programme comprises of 25 credits for Engineering design and projects. Throughout the degree, design skill of the students is improved step by step by introducing modules like Computational Tools for Marine Design, Engineering Design Experience for Marine Engineers and Naval Architects, Ship Design and Construction Technology –II, and Small Craft Design. This allows students to design systems, components or processes to achieve the objectives. The students are offered Research Methodology and Ethics (TE) and Undergraduate Design Project, which students are trained to conduct investigations to undertake comprehensive research projects.
The proposed degree offers 63 credits with reference to Engineering Discipline Specialization. It includes tools such as Introduction to Computer Programming, Object Oriented Programming and Application of CFD for Marine Design and Finite Element Analysis for Marine Structures, etc. Above modules enhance the student’s ability on applying appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools to complex engineering activities.

Furthermore, the degree programme offers modules such as, Communication for Engineers, Society and the Engineer (GE), Physical Fitness and Health Management (GE), Technology and Society (GE), Introduction to Sociology and Maritime Law and Safety. These modules improve students understanding in the areas of Societal, health, safety, legal, cultural and environmental issues and how to find professional engineering solutions. The modules such as Environmental Pollution and waste management systems, Energy Management (TE), etc. are exhaustively describe sustainable development concepts and practices required for dealing with contemporary issues related to professional engineering practice.

The modules such as Engineering Ethics (GE), Research Methodology and Ethics (TE) and Communication for Engineers help students to understand ethical responsibilities and professional standards. The students have to complete a number of group projects for the completion of the degree programme, where students will get a great opportunity to perform effectively as an individual and in multidisciplinary and multi-cultural teams.
Moreover, the modules of Society and the Engineer (GE), Introduction to Sociology, Entrepreneurship and Project Management and Management and Organizational Behaviour will improve students’ communication, management skills. In overall, the MENA degree programme improves lifelong opportunities of the students.

The BScEng in Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture curriculum gives core knowledge in the following sub-specialization areas in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering.

  1. Naval Architecture
  2. Marine Dynamics
  3. Marine Engineering Instrumentation and Control Systems
