This is a nationally recognised qualification which will give you a superb grounding in the essential principles and techniques needed to meet the increasingly challenging and exciting nature of the Engineering industry, specifically within marine technologies. The course has been designed to produce highly employable graduates who combine an indepth knowledge and skills in marine technologies with a wide ranging understanding of more general professional requirements.
As a student on this course you will have the benefits of using the Bournemouth & Poole College’s excellent facilities including 3D printing, an industrial robot, CAD/CAM suites and material testing laboratory. Please contact the College for details about their open days.
This course focuses on the requirements of the marine industry, mainly in respect to craft up to 24m long, known as recreational and leisure craft.
Throughout the course, you will continually develop a working knowledge and understanding of the skills needed for successful operation within marine technologies. You will graduate with the transferable skills necessary to operate effectively within various marine technologies and you’ll become an analytical thinker, being able to solve complex design & engineering related problems.
You will be taught computer aided engineering, using hardware and software design along with simulation essential for working with marine technologies. You’ll also learn how to plan and manage the supply chain and the importance of the quality process to make the best use of available resources.
