The Institutions have come together to deliver a joint programme, however the awards will be in the name of individual institutions. Three awards will be available, the Degree of Master of Science, the Postgraduate Diploma, and the Postgraduate Certificate. Awards can only be offered by Newcastle University or the University of Southampton. The Institution in which the student receives project supervision will be the institution that offers the award.
The programme and all CPD modules are accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) download certificate and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) download certificate.
MTEC is the only distance learning programme currently offering an accredited MSc in Marine Technology, thereby enabling graduates in the marine industry to obtain chartered engineer status whilst remaining in full-time employment.
