This 14 week tutored professional development programme teaches the essential characteristics of a ship’s design - and how they affect its behaviour in the marine environment. This is the perfect introductory course into Naval Architecture.
With its significance developing to encompass an increasingly complex remit, the premise of the naval architect’s role has evolved over the centuries from traditional artist and designer to highly skilled engineer. For those operating alongside naval architects (sales managers, surveyors, technicians, vessels, superintendents, engineers etc) or in support industries (legal, insurance, finance, etc), having a working knowledge of their multi-faceted work should not be underestimated.
When: 10 March 2021
Where: Online with support from leading industry experts
Duration: 14 weeks
Ideal for: Naval Architects and those in supporting or aligned maritime roles who need a good general grasp of the basics of ship design and production.
You will be taught by Octai Dersamet CENG, who has worked in shipping for over 30 years in engineering, project management, naval architecture and industry training.
