The essential characteristics of a ship’s design - and how they affect its behaviour in the marine environment - are of obvious interest to a wide range of different people. Naval architects will clearly need an in-depth understanding of these principles; but there are many in supporting or aligned maritime roles who need a good general grasp of the basics of ship design and production. Marine engineers and surveyors, for example, require a solid appreciation of the fundamentals of naval architecture in order to optimise their professional activities and opportunities.
This course is ideal for anyone who does not necessarily intend to work as a Naval Architect, but needs an understanding of key principles to better perform their role in a related or aligned field. It is also perfect for those with a general interest in the design and construction of ships.
A broad range of people will benefit from this distance learning programme, including:
Personnel working in a related maritime role needing a better understanding of naval architecture to help their job performance or enhance their career prospects, such as:
Professionals working alongside the marine industry seeking an appreciation of how ships are designed, constructed and operated, such as:
Individuals with an interest in ship design or boat building who want an introduction to the theory and application of naval architecture.
Don't just take our word for it....
