The Marine Engineering minor is multidisciplinary and consists of four courses in topics that are relevant to the shipbuilding, maintenance, report and maritime operations industries. This minor is open to all students with the exception of those students in the Mechanical Engineering Technology program’s Marine Engineering option.
Modern and well-equipped laboratories
Special opportunities to work on projects sponsored by industry
This course includes: fundamental principles of naval architecture including nomenclature, geometry, stability, hydrostatics, structures, and motions; ship design processes; and a basic introduction to shipboard systems such as HVAC, refrigeration, power generation, propulsion, hydraulics, electronics, cargo handling systems, seawater systems, freshwater systems, and fuel, lube and other oil systems.Prerequisites: MET 330 and MET 350.
This course builds upon MET 475 and provides a more in-depth look on how the marine shipbuilding industry is using various software including SIEMENS PLM, 3D CAD modeling and new technologies like laser scanners and augmented reality to reshape the future of shipbuilding, maintenance, and repair processes. Focus will be based on model-based learning and creating a digital thread of information. Students will practice what they learn on shipbuilding concepts using commercial software that is widely used across automotive, aerospace, and marine industries. Prerequisites: MET 475.
Basic principles of naval architecture related to ship geometry, stability, strength, resistance, propulsion, vibration and motions in waves and controllability. Prerequisites: MATH 212.
