2. Course description

The Foundation Degree in Marine Engineering develops the skills and underpinning knowledge needed for a rewarding career in the international maritime industry. Within world-class learning facilities, we offer an employer-focused programme of study fully aligned to the requirements of both the Maritime and Coastguard Agencies (MCA) and the Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB). This will support your eligibility for a career as a Marine Engineering Officer. This programme is only available to students sponsored by a shipping company or cadet training provider due to the work-based learning modules, which should be completed on board ships.

3. Entry requirements

To enrol on the foundation degree you need 48 points under the new UCAS tariff system. This must include subjects relevant to Engineering or Mathematics. A GCSE Mathematics Grade B or higher is also required.

4. Equipment required

All the equipment and resources you require for this course are provided by B&FC at no extra cost.

5. Assessment method

Most courses are assessed via a combination of coursework, exams and practical assessments. Exams are formal, timed written assessments, carried out in a controlled environment and overseen by one or more invigilators. Coursework differs from exams in that it is usually non-timed and carried out independently. Practical assessments involve observation of your practical skills and competencies by a trained assessor.
