Course Information and Fees

ND: ENGINEERING: MECHANICAL: MARINE ENGINEERING national diploma

ENGINEERING: MECHANICAL: MARINE ENGINEERING

ND: (national diploma)

The aim of the course is to afford the student the opportunity to obtain the National Diploma in Engineering: Mechanical which is accepted by maritime commerce and industry (Part A), as well as the SAMSA certificate of competency which will enable students to serve on vessels as certificated Engineer Officers (Part A & B).

Purpose and Rationale of the qualification
Persons achieving this qualification will be able to, independently as well as under supervision, integrate analytical and practical engineering techniques and engineering knowledge to solve well-defined and open-ended engineering problems. They will also be able to select criteria to judge processes and outcomes. This qualification is intended for engineering practitioners in industry.

Career Opportunities
The course provide an opportunity for Marine Engineer Officers (or aspirant marine engineer officers) to obtain both a National Diploma and a STCW95 compliant certificate of competency.

Career opportunities also exist in the shore-based maritime industry, particularly for those persons who ultimately wish to terminate their sea-going employment.

Year 1: Academic component at CPUT, i.e. Semester 1 (S1) and S2
Year 2: Marine Engineering Workshop Training at Northlink College
Year 3/4: Experiential (sea-going) learning component, i.e. 12 months approved sea-service required on vessels with propulsion power 750 kW or greater. SAMSA ancillary certification and Level 3 Oral examination.

Second Engineer Officer CoC
S3 + 12 months approved sea-service required on vessels with propulsion power 3000 kW or greater. SAMSA ancillary certification and Level 3 Oral examination.

Chief Engineer Officer CoC
S4 + 24 months approved sea-service required on vessels with propulsion power 3000 kW or greater. SAMSA ancillary certification and Level 3 Oral examination.

Requirements for cadetship
- Year 12 schooling with Mathematics, Physical Science and English
- maximum age 21
- foreign students to arrange their own experiential (sea-going) learning component.


Experiential Learning
Students are required to complete a minimum of 12 months unlimited sea service aboard vessels with an engine capacity greater than 750 kW as well as practical workshop training of approximately six months.

The Department of Maritime Studies may be able to assist in finding sea-going (experiential learning) opportunities, but cannot guarantee placement. During the sea-going period, students complete a complex on-board training programme and a cadet’s record book.


Offering Type and Duration
Full-Time / Three and a half years.
Students attend seven semesters at the university, followed by 36 months of sea-going experiential learning and six months of workshop training.
