Before enrolling in a postgraduate course carried out in English, all candidates are required to pass the English language test. Exemptions from the test can be granted to the candidates who:

- speak English as their mother tongue,

- received the Cambridge First Certificate or equivalent,

- graduated from English-speaking high school or college,

- completed other undergraduate or graduate courses in English,

- passed the English language test (advanced level) during their leaving exams,

- completed other undergraduate or graduate courses in Poland and received at least B grade at their final exam.


During the Mechanical Engineering course, you will learn about the issues related to the day-to-day operation, management and diagnosis of equipment typically used in the marine engine room. It gives our graduates a variety of job opportunities, ranging from the typical career path as a ship's crew member, to employment in repair and maintenance companies and also starting their own business. During the course, the students acquire competence in operation and maintenance of marine power plants. After completion of the required internship, these qualifications shall be endorsed with an Engineer Officer of the Watch certificate issued by the relevant maritime administration, which allows the holder to work on board as a ship's engineer officer.

During their studies, students acquire knowledge in the field of preparing, managing and carrying out overhauls of power equipment, industrial, refrigeration and recycling plants. Students are trained in: the principles of teamwork, standards for the technical services operation, classification societies, shipowners' technical supervision services and other technical inspection bodies. Students also learn to coordinate tasks related to the equipment operation process, acquire skills in supporting design work in simple engineering tasks, selection of materials used for machinery components and supervision of their operation in shipyards or production, maintenance and repair companies.

Why is it worth it?

Regardless of the development of autonomous transport systems, the automation of energy equipment or the implementation of AI-based computer technologies, the necessity to maintain the technical condition of these facilities at an appropriate level will not disappear. In short, someone has to know how to repair this equipment.

The competencies acquired during the studies can be used in various areas of the economy, from the broadly defined maritime economy, through the energy sector to the mining industry, etc. Personal and professional development, changes in the economic climate and other external factors lead to career development and may result in changing the workplace, but the knowledge and skills acquired during your studies will continue to be used and developed.

The course programme provides training at the operational level and allows - after graduation and completion of internship - to obtain the basic officer qualification in the engine department. The programme also provides training at the management level, allowing - after additional training and passing the exam - to obtain the second engineer officer certificate. This is without having to attend a six-month course which poses some financial and logistical challenges for people working full-time.


On completion of the graduate course, the Master of Engineering degree is granted and graduates are prepared to continue their education at the postgraduate and doctoral level. The success stories of our graduates show, that they are able to perform exceptionally well, not only in areas specific to the maritime economy but also in the field of the energy and mining industry or processing and chemical industry, wherever knowledge and skills in the domain of maintenance, diagnostics and repair of mechanical devices are required.
