Study Marine Engineering on Low Tuition at the University of British Columbia, Canada


There is currently one Marine program taught in this university:

Master of Engineering in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (MEng)

      The Master of Engineering (M. Eng.) program is suited to students who desire to pursue their engineering education in a preferred area of specialization beyond the undergraduate level, but who do not wish to pursue a thesis research program. Applicants who are considering taking a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in the future should apply for admission to the Master of Applied Science (M.A.Sc.) through the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

Typical completion time for full-time Master of Engineering students is 12-16 months. The Master of Engineering in Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering (MEng NAME) involves 8 months of intensive coursework followed by a 4-month internship. Students in this program take a specialized set of courses that draw material from Mechanical, Civil, and Materials Engineering, and that focus specifically on the design, construction, maintenance and operation of waterborne vehicles. This interdisciplinary, industry-focused program offers students an innovative education that will enable them to design and construct ships and other structures in the marine environment, and therefore prepare them for immediate and stimulating work in a vital and growing industry.

Length of Program:  (12-16 months)

Tuition fees: CAN$40,800.00 (US$ 30,106) per year

Start Date: Expected September 2017
