The Bachelor of Technology in Marine Engineering is a double degree developed in partnership with Satakunta University of Applied Sciences. The programme aims at equipping students who intend to embark upon a career in maritime industry as Marine Engineer on commercial vessels by providing practiced-oriented training in the field of Marine Engineering. Overall, the programme equips students with comprehensive and systematic knowledge and skills required to operate in international traffic, safely manage, facilitate, and undertake operation and maintenance linked to the shipboard marine engineering systems. Graduates of this programme will be able to contribute significantly to the national development goals in various roles such as engineer, chief engineer and captain within Namibia and abroad.
In addition to meeting NUST General Admission Requirements as spelt out in the general rules, candidates must have at least 30 points on the Engineering Evaluation Scale, with a minimum 3 symbol in Mathematics and Physical Science at Grade 12/NSSC Higher Level or with a minimum A symbol in Mathematics and Physical Science, English at Grade 12/NSSC Ordinary Level with a symbol of D.
If a candidate does not have Physical Science but has Physics or a “Physics equivalent” subject, the Registrar may upon recommendation from the relevant Head of Department and the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, approve registration of the candidate.
Those who do not fulfil the minimum requirements as stated above, but have long years of on board experience, will be considered for admission after evaluating their knowledge and skills.
Candidates who have successfully completed both In STEM 1 and In STEM 2 offered at NUST will be admitted in the programme. Holders of a National Diploma (ND) in Mechanical Engineering obtained from NUST are eligible for admission. Depending on the results of an evaluation of equivalence of their qualifications, holders of similar qualifications obtained elsewhere will be considered.
