Our oceans cover 70% of the globe’s surface. They provide food, minerals, and oil while shipping provides the transport that enables 90% of the world’s trade. Beyond this they contain huge amounts of untapped energy resources and potential for further exploration.
To utilise the oceans in a more sustainable way, we need creative and inquisitive minds like yours to advance new technological solutions.
Through this course you will experience first-hand what it takes to design ships and renewable energy technologies which harness the power of the ocean. You will face the challenges of testing your ships in stormy sea states. You will also have the chance to talk to talented young engineers and researchers, who are directly involved across the maritime frontier, from world class sailing competitions to building the vehicles which dwell in the unexplored abysses of our planet.


Learn and use ship design principles and renewable energy technologies.

Hands-on practice designing, building and testing ships and wave energy harvesting devices. Supported by maritime engineers and researchers.

Visit a leading international marine technology company.

Access cutting edge research facilities to enhance your design skills.

Learn more about maritime careers and life working at sea.
