The Faculty of Engineering Sciences of the Colombo International Nautical and Engineering College (CINEC) provides an opportunity for suitably qualified candidates to obtain Bachelor of Engineering Degrees from the University of Wolverhampton, UK, or the University of Tasmainia, Australia.
This is an excellent educational opportunity for students who have not gained necessary scores to enter Sri Lankan Universities and are unable to attend foreign Universities due to lack of funds.
University of Wolverhampton offers five BEng degree programmes that could be completed in full at CINEC.
Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Electronics and Communications Engineering
Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Mechatronics
Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Mechanical Engineering
Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Engineering Design Management
Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Automotive Systems Engineering
The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), UK has accredited all the above courses.
The IET state that an IET accredited course is "…a mark of quality…". It is this mark of quality that confirms graduates from the above courses possess knowledge to a level recognised globally by the engineering and technology community. This provides a sound basis to develop a career, and progress to Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
The University of Wolverhampton is recognised as producing world class research and this has been reflected in the recent Government Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) who identified the University of Wolverhampton as producing areas of research that is amongst the best in the world.
University of Tasmania (UTAS) - Australian maritime College (AMC)
University of Tasmania (UTAS) is associated with CINEC as an official partner in offering its BEng programmes at CINEC on a two-plus-two basis.
Since 1978 the Australian Maritime College has been an international leader in the provision of training and education for the maritime sector. It sits amongst the top 10 maritime training institutions in the world, has a suite of state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities and attracts an international student cohort that studies across three purpose-built campuses in Australia's southern-most state, Tasmania.
On January 1, 2008, the AMC joined forces with one of Australia's oldest universities to become an institute of the University of Tasmania. This has allowed AMC to focus on its areas of expertise but draw upon the University's resources.
The AMC has recently signed an agreement with CINEC allowing students to study its courses on a two-plus-two basis, meaning two years at CINEC and two years at AMC. Degrees offered under this arrangement are:
Bachelor of Engineering (Naval Architecture)
Bachelor of Engineering (Ocean Engineering)
Bachelor of Engineering (Marine and Offshore Systems)
AMC engineering degrees are fully accredited by Engineers Australia and recognised by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (UK) and the Royal Institution of Naval Architecture. AMC-trained engineers are highly regarded. The graduate employment rate is 100% and salaries start around AUD $70,000.
A reputation for excellence, coupled with an established student work experience programme and strong industry ties means many students find employment before they finish their studies. AMC graduates can be found working in offshore oil and gas, ship building and repair, defence and a number of other related areas.
NCMEH students use these facilities during their courses and are given the opportunity to work with industry partners on their final year projects.
These projects attract research partners including ship design and construction companies, defence organisations, offshore designers and operators, commercial shipping companies, port authorities and more.
The centre also supports postgraduate studies including PhD programmes and commercial research projects.AMC's two other national centres offer programmes in the areas of coastal and international seafaring, maritime and logistics management, marine conservation and resource management.
Students and parents are most welcome to visit the CINEC campus at Millennium Drive, IT Park, Malabe, to have an idea of the facilities available in the campus and obtain further information on the programmes of study.
