Naval Architecture Marine Engineering Training
Naval Architecture Marine Engineering Training will teach you all aspects of vessel design, systems integration, structural analysis, construction, and operational support.
In the highly integrated and complex field of modern ship design, especially when the project involves sophisticated marine electronic sensors and equipment, energy-efficient power generation and distribution, high sea state boat launch and recovery, manned and unmanned aviation systems integration, and optimum human systems integration, you need initial design insights and engineering evolution management support of needs throughout the product life cycle — from emergence of new requirements through the final installation, sustainment, and disposal.
You will become familiar with the full range of commercial and military standards, including SOLAS, IMO regulations, multiple classification society rules, ABYC rules, and U.S. Navy design methods as well as applicable USCG regulations.
Together with the necessary technical knowledge, an understanding of the relevant industrial legislation and safe operating practices are essential for any marine engineer.
This Diploma in Marine Engineering will equip you with a firm understanding of the principles associated with marine engineering and engineering management practices.

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO
This tutored professional development programme teaches the essential characteristics of a ship’s design – and how they affect its behavior in the marine environment
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.
