WHAT YOU’LL DO ONCE YOU HAVE QUALIFIED FROM ONE OF OUR MARINE ENGINEERING CADETSHIP COURSES 

Our marine engineering cadetship courses equip you with the knowledge and skills needed for life at sea as a qualified Engineering Officer in the Merchant Navy.  You’ll operate and maintain the mechanical systems such as engines, ventilation systems, navigation and communications equipment, deck fittings like cranes, hoists and landing craft. 

During your time at college – five phases over three years, split between in-class and at sea training – your tuition fees will be fully covered, and you will receive a minimum payment of £800 per month.

Once qualified you’ll be ranked according to your experience and qualifications and with each grade comes more responsibilities. As an Officer Cadet at our Engineering University you will start at the bottom and work your way up: 

  • Chief Engineer – overall authority for planning engineering tasks and delegating them to staff
  • Second Engineer –day-to-day supervision of the ship’s engineering team
  • Third Engineer – assisting the Second Engineer and looking after the mechanical systems and machinery
  • Junior/Fourth Engineer – carrying out general machinery maintenance.

If this doesn’t sound like the route for you, there are other Merchant Navy careers to choose from.
