Department of Naval Architecture is a recently established department and was formed in the year 2018. At present, only MS Naval Architecture is being offered by the department. However, undergraduate program in the field of Naval Architecture is planned to be launch from Fall 2019.
Naval Architects are Naval engineers who design and construct vessels such as ships, yachts, powerboats, fishing boats, barges, war ships, cruise ships, ice breakers and even submarines.
The course curriculum has been designed to provide knowledge in all core areas of field of Naval Architecture such as Marine Hydrodynamics, Marine Structure and Advanced Marine Dynamics. Students also undertake a comprehensive ship design exercise as a group project to learn to carryout concept studies in ship designing. During design exercise, special emphasis is given on inculcating interpersonal and team skills so that they may be easily integrated into industrial ship design teams.
