This module provides a systematic understanding, and the ability to deploy accurately, established naval architectural and ocean engineering analyses for the design of ocean vehicles and structures, which are informed by the forefront of the maritime engineering field.
The module develops design skills to enable students to solve design problems for a marine vessel (such as a ferry, cargo ship, superyacht or naval platform) or structure (such as an oil and gas platform or marine renewable energy facility) design. This includes commercial, regulatory and environmental aspects. Students also gain an appreciation of the uncertainty, ambiguity and limits of knowledge within the marine design space.
This module is the third of three of three for the Ocean Engineering Minor:
