Course Summary

This course provides research training, supervision and collaboration to international standards. Your research project will be in one of the areas addressed by our research groups. The research project comprises an original piece of work combining both experiment and theory. Your thesis should explore, in detail, some element of engineering or science as applied in the marine environment. Where appropriate, you will be encouraged to take advantage of our strong links with the marine industry to carry out your research project in an industrial context. Recent partnerships and collaborations include International Paint, Lloyds Register and BAE Systems.

Your research project is normally in one of the areas addressed by our research groups: Oceans and Climate (OC); Marine Biology Ecosystems and Governance (MBEG); Marine Resources and Renewable Energy (MRRE); Marine Hydrodynamics and Structures (MHS) and Sustainable Shipping and Marine Engineering (SSME). Our programme will help you to: complete a training needs analysis, so that you know what your current skills are and where you need help and development; use your training needs analysis to create your personal development plan; identify appropriate workshops or other events that will help you most and best address your development needs and gain the personal and professional key skills development for the successful completion of your research degree. This course is 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.
