About this program

Awarded by: Scottish Qualifications Authority trading as SQA

This programme is a three year sandwich course that has been designed to enable marine cadets to achieve the academic standard necessary for the qualification of Foundation Degree in Marine Engineering and the STCW approved certificate as Chief Engineer Officer.
The main deliverable objective of this award is to provide the academic or underpinning knowledge required by practicing Marine Engineer officers within today’s maritime industries. The programme strategy mirrors the established and accepted practice of integrating the practical and theoretical elements to provide a programme that corresponds with existing engineering training programmes.
The initial knowledge and skills delivered within level 4 will enable the range of knowledge anticipated at entry to be developed to allow application of skills on-board ship. This knowledge will be developed within the level 5 modules delivered in the final two semesters. The college based programmes are fully integrated with industrial or sea based training that meet the industry’s requirements for a structured and phased training scheme. During the sea phases students will undertake work based learning that is supported during the college based phases, as well as completing a sea phase record book of practical training undertaken on-board.
