With an illustrious history stretching back to 1882, the Department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering is a key provider of marine technology expertise in the UK and beyond.
Ideally located in Glasgow, we continue to build on the city’s rich heritage of shipbuilding and sea-faring, making significant contributions to National and International policy-making and the advancement of the Marine Technology field.
Our BEng and MEng courses are accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) on behalf of the Engineering Council.
Naval Architects are recognised as one of the highest-paid specialist engineers, with a wide variety of positions and roles. Career opportunities in the maritime industry and further afield, both in the UK and worldwide include ship design and technical consultancy, ship safety, shipping and ship operation and management, as well as specialised areas of fast ships, leisure craft, and shipbuilding and repair. Many of our graduates are involved in management and commerce. Increasingly, graduates will play leading roles in the engineering of offshore renewable energy sources, including offshore wind, wave and tidal power.
