Simon Dowell - MSc in Marine Technology (Defence)


I enrolled on an MSc in Defence Engineering with MTEC following completion of a BEng Naval Architecture degree at UCL. The MTEC programme provided me with the ideal opportunity to work towards an MSc and Chartership whilst remaining in full time employment with the MOD. There are a number of ‘streams’ and a wide variety of modules to choose between which allowed me to focus on specific areas of interest.

I found all of the modules I attended across a range of universities to be very well facilitated and taught, and there was always support available for the distance learning aspects of the course. I would definitely recommend the programme for anyone in full time employment looking to continue with higher education.

Programme co-ordinators are very helpful too!


Currently employed at Ministry of Defence
