Marine Engineering

A career in marine engineering can literally open up a world of opportunity for you. Our students leave us for a host of careers across the world, working on superyachts, in various dockyards and serving in the merchant navy.

Our specialist marine engineering workshop includes onboard and outboard engines, hydraulic systems, thrusters and generators from leading marine brands, giving you access to the most up-to-date equipment on the market.

In our full-size marine engine control room you can experience all areas of maintenance such as hydraulics, electrical and cooling systems, getting you ready for working in the industry, at home or abroad.

After I completed my course I went straight into work as a flotilla engineer with Greek Sails. If you would like to work in the sector I highly recommend Falmouth.
