The primary objective of this course is to provide conversion or refresher training for science and engineering graduates and experienced draughtsmen who hold active line responsibilities in the design of ships and ship systems and in shipbuilding practice. The course is designed in such a way that at the end of the lectures, the person will have a very broad understanding of the behaviour of ships under a variety of loading and operating conditions. The syllabus will include: basic definitions of ships, structural components of the hull girder, general arrangement, ship as functional blocks, resistance and propulsion methods. The course is intended for practicing engineers and research scientists who need to understand the concepts behind the behaviour of ships & ships system at sea.

Who should attend 

Engineers and scientists involved in the design of ships and ship systems, personnel from ship management companies, oil companies, classification societies and ship builders will benefit from attending this course. The course is innovative in both content & structure with a careful balance of theory & practice.
