This course combines a core set of fundamental engineering units with a focus on marine craft design and technology. Naval architects are responsible for the design and construction of marine craft such as high-speed ferries, submarines, racing yachts, cargo ships, naval vessels and offshore floating systems.
Ship and Underwater Vehicles – focuses on the design and construction of ships ranging from high-speed ferries to naval frigates, as well as underwater vehicles and submarines.
Yacht and Small Crafts – comprises a similar set of units to the Ship and Underwater Vehicles specialisation, but focuses on the design and construction of small craft ranging from recreational craft to luxury cruisers and sailing yachts.
This course is structured to be completed in 4 years of full-time study and consists of 8 units per year of study. Students are able to major in one of the following specialisations: Ship & Underwater Vehicles or Yacht and Small Craft. Students meeting the required standards of achievement throughout the course may qualify for an Honours award.
As part of the course of study, students must complete at least 12 weeks of work experience considered to be appropriate by the Bachelor of Engineering Courses Committee. For more information on work experience click here.
