The Marine Engineering MSc is concerned with the design, analysis and operation of machinery and systems for merchant and naval ships and submarines. The programme covers a wide range of engineering subjects relevant to the development and procurement of marine engineering, and the programme features two parallel mechanical and electrical streams.
UCL Mechanical Engineering has seen, in recent years, unprecedented activity in refurbishing and re-equipping our laboratories. Highlights of this include an extensive workshop, four engine test cells of the highest specification, a new fluid mechanics laboratory, a fuel cell laboratory, and a new towing tank for ship models.
This MSc has been selected by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), Royal Navy, Canadian and other navies for the advanced training of their marine engineers. It also receives students from many other major maritime nations. Run in parallel with the Naval Architecture MSc, students from both programmes work together on a comprehensive and unique ship design exercise.
The department has an international reputation for excellence and is funded by numerous bodies including the Royal Society, the Leverhulme Trust, UK MoD, BAE Systems, BP and US Naval Research (ONR).
