These courses cover the fundamental principles of engineering and their application to the design and construction of marine vehicles and systems. 

The Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering program at the University of Michigan is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

University Of Plymouth: The University of Plymouth is a public university based primarily in Plymouth, England, where the main campus is located, but the university has campuses and affiliated colleges in the southwest of England. With 21,645 students, it is the 38th largest in the United Kingdom by a total number of students. 

Above all, all students will be distinguished professionally with a diploma accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA), the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council. It will increase your opportunities with a solid foundation in mechanical engineering and a focus on design, opening a variety of possible careers.

Griffith University: With cutting-edge teaching and research strengths, Griffith University is a great place to study marine science. Located with easy access to a variety of vast natural and artificial waterways, iconic surfing beaches. As well as the various wetlands and coastal biodiversity of Moreton Bay, Gold Coast is the perfect natural laboratory. 

Specifically, you will be offered an internship in the maritime industry as part of the industry affiliate program and/or a synthetic experience. Above all, it will expose you to professional activities in the fields of fishing, aquaculture, marine, coastal and/or coastal engineering management. 

Then, in your first year, you will take basic courses that provide the necessary fundamentals in the basic sciences. During the second and third years, you focus on your chosen area of specialization.

Delft University Of Technology: The license and master’s program in marine technology will teach you how to design a ship, with all the necessary amenities and facilities. However, a marine engineer will acquire more skills. 

It will also cover the optimization of the full shape and the construction of the ship, the design of offshore platforms and the analysis of the construction process.

Graduates not only improve ships (and other marine vessels) but also the processes used to design, build or operate these ships. They work as maritime experts or as integrators in mixed and multidisciplinary teams. The attitude and knowledge required are developed in a difficult and personalized master’s program.

Liverpool John Moores University: The University in Liverpool is located in one of the most known port cities of all times. That’s why Maritime Business Courses are of great importance there.
