PROGRAMME 
OVERVIEW

Newcastle University

Bachelor of Engineering with Honours
in Naval Architecture

Naval Architecture integrates basic and applied research, design processes and engineering principles for the design, construction, maintenance and operation of marine vessels and structures. Other key activities include the conversion, rebuilding and repair of ships. Naval Architecture also involves the formulation of safety regulations, damage control rules and the approval and certification of ship designs to meet statutory and non-statutory requirements.

This degree programme is directed towards the design, development and operation of ships and other marine vehicles. The principles of stability, structures, response in a seaway, resistance and propulsion can be applied to vessels as diverse as ferries, giant oil tankers, tugs and even warships.

Naval Architects excel in various sectors of the shipbuilding industry including ship design and construction, technical and safety consultancy, operations, management and commerce, as well as the engineering of offshore renewable energy sources such as wind, wave and tidal power.
