Maritime and Technology Faculty
Welcome to the Maritime and Technology Faculty
Our courses are all designed to support technology-based careers in disciplines such as computing, construction, engineering, entertainment technology, geography, maritime and yacht design. The education and training of professional ships’ officers takes place at the separate campus of the internationally renowned Warsash Maritime Academy.
Although we aim to provide learning experiences which are challenging and fulfilling, we know that students are also keen to make sure that the programmes they study will provide them with a sound foundation for a good career. This is why the characteristic you will find in all of our courses is a close relationship between the teaching staff and active practitioners in industry and commerce. Experience tells us that this is the best way to guarantee that what our students learn is relevant to the world of work, is up-to date, and reflects current professional practice.
But university life is not just about formal academic study. We encourage our students and staff to play a full part in the life of the city, through volunteer work, paid employment, and participation in real projects in support of local business. We know that coming to university for the first time can be a little daunting too, so we make sure that ours is a friendly environment, with staff who are approachable and ready to offer sound advice and good support when you need them.
