Want to start your marine engineering career?
If you are new to the industry with no experience and want to become an Engine Watch Rating (EWR) or start your training towards becoming a marine engineering officer, this is the programme for you.
Get basic maritime knowledge and skills about survival at sea and contribute as an engineer to shipboard maintenance and repair as well as onboard engineering.
You will gain the skills and knowledge required by the international convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) to work independently and with only broad guidance as engineering crew on vessels operating in unlimited waters. Graduates will carry out crewing duties at a support level to senior engineers.
You will be prepared for a rewarding career in a global industry which has continuous demand for well-trained and motivated people. You may find yourself working on a wide range of foreign-going ships from cruise liners, ferries and container ships through to oil and chemical tanker ships.
