About Alastair

Alastair lectures in Marine Navigation and Maritime Science, in a busy but friendly department. Currently he is responsible for helping to develop modules within the course; speaking with prospective parents and students; liaising with our colleagues in the maritime industry; lecturing and taking the students on the water (for many this is their first experience of life at sea and quite often this part of the course is the most popular!) As well as the obvious day to day academic roles, it is also a crucial time where both students and Alastair are developing a professional relationship, which it is hoped continues once they have left University. Taught Modules: • Coastal Navigation • Voyage Planning and Meteorology • Marine Techniques • Law • Problem solving in the marine environment • Marine Honours Project


Responsible for the 1st year intake, acting as a point of contact for any 1st year, he takes an active interest in checking on their attendance and overall performance.
