The diversity and variety of subjects you will study is matched by the wide range of career opportunities that you will enjoy when you graduate. Our graduates are always in demand in a wide variety of marine industries worldwide. There are plenty of opportunities for careers working in the field, and for world travel. In addition to engineering and technical activities, many of our graduates are involved in management and commerce.
With a substantial range of industries open to our graduates, they may choose to work in areas such as:
- Construction and Repair
- Fast Ships and Leisure Craft
- Offshore Oil and Gas
- Research and Development
- Ship Safety
- Shipping, Ship Operation and Management
- Specialist Ships
- Surveying and Classification
- Technical Consultancy
Examples of companies our graduates have been employed by include:
- Babcock International Group
- BVT Surface Fleet
- Lloyd's Register of Shipping
- Maritime & Coastguard Agency
- Noble Denton
- Teekay Shipping
Further information on the types of careers available can be found on the following websites:
- Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA)
- Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST)
We can confidently predict that the majority of goods will continue to be moved around the world by ships, and that ocean resources will continue to meet a substantial proportion of the world's energy needs. However it is impossible to predict with great accuracy in a rapidly changing world what new opportunities will be available to you over your entire career after you graduate from one of our courses. Because of this we have deliberately designed the courses with the aim of providing a broadly-based engineering education and developing a range of personal skills to enable our graduates to have the widest possible choice of a range of challenging careers.
In the near future, it is likely that Naval Architects and Marine Engineers will be playing leading roles in all aspects of the engineering of offshore renewable energy sources including offshore wind, wave and tidal power.
