Marine Engineer

Marine engineering involves the design, construction, installation, operation and support of the systems and equipment which propel and control marine vehicles, and of the systems which make a vehicle or structure habitable for crew, passengers and cargo.

This engineering discipline is allied to mechanical engineering, although the modern marine engineer requires knowledge and hands on experience with electrical, electronic, pneumatic, hydraulic, chemistry, control engineering, naval architecture or ship design, process engineering, steam generations gas turbines and even nuclear technology on certain military vessels.

Sequence knows marine engineering. 

We have been in the forefront recruiting and staffing in the marine engineering field. At Sequence, we know and understand the vital role marine engineers have in the engineering industry. We are the premier executive recruiting and staffing firm committed to providing employment solutions to major industries around the world. 

Because of our long experience in this field, we know that marine engineering on board a ship refers to the operation and maintenance of the propulsion and other systems such as electrical power generation plant; lighting; air conditioning; refrigeration; and water systems on board the vessel. This work is carried out by marine engineering officers, who usually train via cadetships sponsored by a variety of maritime organizations.

We also understand that marine engineering embraces other areas such as autonomous underwater vehicle research; Marine renewable energy research; and careers related to the offshore extractive and infrastructure (cable laying) industries.
