Marine Surveying Advanced Professional Diploma

Expert in Marine Engineering


By tradition, the title Marine Engineer is associated with the design, construction, operation and maintenance of ships and their machinery and associated systems. Although this remains significant, such is the span of engineering disciplines and survey activities involving the sea and the seabed that the term Maritime Engineering is now more appropriate.
Whether involved in the traditional shipping aspects of the industry or offshore and ocean engineering developments, the professional expertise and responsibilities of the maritime engineer require both academic achievement and practical experience in a diverse range of disciplines. A career in this industry requires integrity, ingenuity and leadership and can involve work in design, construction, operations and maintenance. These qualities are all to be learned in this course.


The program offers a comprehensive course load complete with advanced training modules and techniques which:
  • Build a broad-based knowledge of highly complex engineering systems of a modern ship.
  • Study the major principles of mechanical and hydraulic machinery, electrical systems, naval architecture and ship construction instrumentation and control systems.
