EN476: Ship Design II
EN376 Ship Design II (0-6-3).
In this course, which represents the culmination of an undergraduate naval architecture program, the student apples engineering skills to the preliminary design of a ship.
Ship Design and Construction, 2 vols., SNAME, 2003
- Be able to exercise his or her technical background by application to the design of a complex system - namely a ship.
- Be able to budget a limited amount of time and effort toward the solution of an open-ended design problem.
- Know how to seek out and obtain information from sources other than standard textbooks.
- Have experience in the oral presentation of a technical problem and its solution.
- Have the ability to produce a ship design solution which shows good engineering judgment, is technically sound, fiscally feasible, and aesthetically pleasing.
