Course description

An Electro Technical Officer (ETO) operates, maintains and calibrates all electrical, electronic and control equipment. The ETO’s role is not restricted to the engine room and may also work on complex systems located throughout any vessel. The course shares its first two semesters with the BEng in Marine and Plant Engineering. Having completed Year 1, Marine Electrotechnology students will begin specialist electrical and electronic training. As well as lectures, training is provided in a variety of workshops and laboratories. This practical work is given to enhance the students learning experience. Practical knowledge of fundamental theories is gained in electrical, electronic, communications and control laboratories. A broad understanding of ships and ships’ systems is delivered in electrical workshops and in the college’s own engine room. Students will undertake basic safety training and instruction prior to taking up seagoing work placement with a shipping company.
