If design and construction of marine vessels floats your boat (or sinks your submarine) this course will give you the hands-on experience in Naval Architecture that could help launch an exciting and varied career. As one of the highest paid technical professions, Naval Architecture combines, science, maths and physics to solve some of the most challenging problems in modern engineering. Student date of birth must be between 01/09/2002 & 28/02/2005.
This is your chance to see what’s involved in creating and maintaining different types of marine vessels. You’ll also get to put your skills to the test by designing and building your own Landing Craft Vessel – typically used to transfer personnel and equipment to beachheads – and test it at the one of Plymouth University’s wave-tanks. Here, the obstacle course will aim to simulate every condition a vessel should find itself in, including natural and man-made obstacles, slipstreams/currents and waves. *Only British Nationals will be accepted on this course due to the planned site visits.
