Naval architecture and ocean engineering is an area of applied science in which basic knowledge of various scientific disciplines is required for the design of naval structures, shipbuilding, and analysis of movement on the ocean. This area solves the scientific and technological problems of designing and constructing naval structures and shipbuilding, which enrich human life. By understanding the dynamics of the ocean environment, creative organization of large-scale systems in the ocean may become possible.
The department fosters talent in the global maritime industry, technology, and business.
The department is divided into three primary levels of study: Fundamental Dynamics, Fundamental Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering, and Specialized Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering. The Fundamental Dynamics curriculum acts as a bridge between basic and applied science, increasing students’ ability to develop the knowledge required in for the future growth of this field. The Fundamental Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering curriculum enables students to understand the structure and design of ships and ocean structures. In the specialized curriculum, students will develop their abilities to solve various problems in this field. Experimental labs include an aquarium for testing ships, a structure testing apparatus, a computer design lab, a vibration testing apparatus, a welding dynamics testing apparatus, and ship CAD capabilities.
Naval Architecture covers a wide range of subjects associated with ships and offshore structures. The final goal of naval architecture lies in the design and production of the most reliable and cost-effective transport system and offshore structures which can carry out missions successfully in harsh environments.
By developing basic theories concerning all the branches of naval architecture and ocean engineering, this department aims at enhancing the superiority in the sense of educations, research and public service as an essential function of the university.
The field of Naval Architecture is directed towards the design, production, and operation of all types of ships; cruisers, FPSO, fast ferries, Liquefied Natural Gas(LNG) Carriers, etc. Ocean Engineering specially deals with the design, construction, and operation of all types of marine structures; from oil platforms to very large floating structures, like man-made floating islands.
