How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Marine Engineering course?

Good with Numbers

Like any other sub-discipline in engineering, you will need to be one with numbers! The calculations you compute will help ships sail the seas.

Good with your Hands

While other engineering courses may require some hands-on work, marine engineering will require you to be ready to get your hands really dirty! You be even be stationed offshore!

Adventurous

Some people prefer the comforts of an air-conditioned office in the middle of the city. Marine engineers are not one of those people, as they’re constantly moving around as ships do, sometimes even working for mining companies as they drill ocean beds.
