Marine engineering refers to the design of marine propulsion systems. Marine propulsion is a system which is used to move ships and boats. Usually big ships are operated by systems which have an engine, a propeller, impeller, etc. The first engines used were steam engines, but now two-stroke or four-strokes are used.
