    It depends on what the OP finds interesting to study and his career goals but I wouldn't say it would restrict you that much. For example, my project supervisor in my third year (who is a head of automotive engineering research at my last university) did his undergrad in Marine Engineering (at Newcastle as well funnily enough) then did a PhD in Engineering at Bristol. He teaches all the systems engineering modules as well as all the advanced mechanical dynamics modules.

    Just shows you/puts into perspective how interlinked a lot of the engineering disciplines actually are despite their names.
    Fair enough. Like I thought you could say do civil engineering and go into marine engineering as a MSc and specialise in ship structures or say mechanical and go into the systems that ships use.

    You can! That's another route that would open up a few more doors.
