2- Master of Naval Architecture Engineering, Ship Hydrodynamics orientation

Ship-building Engineering:

Ship-building engineering is actually an interdisciplinary engineering discipline. Numerous specializations are required to design and build various structures related to the sea, such as ships and offshore structures. In the meantime, a ship-building engineer will be able to participate in various stages of design, construction supervision, as well as repairs of marine structures. In fact, the field of Ship-building engineering is designed to use engineering sciences and related technologies to train students to design and build marine components and systems and to prepare them to make them responsible for designing and calculating components and systems in related industries associated to building ships, submarines and offshore structures.

The field of Ship-building Engineering is currently taught at Chabahar Maritime University (CMU) in both undergraduate and graduate levels. The bachelor's degree in Ship-building Engineering is the basis of the master's degree courses in ship architecture (structural orientations, ship hydromechanics and construction engineering in the maritime industry) and the doctorate in Ship-building Engineering. In the near future, with the presence of experienced professors, various postgraduate concentrations in this field will be launched.

Importance and Reasons for Establishing the Field of Ship-building Engineering:

Due to the extensive coastline in the south and north of our beloved country, sea-related disciplines are of particular importance. The importance of Ship-building engineering is clear with regard to the following:

Ø  General policies of the system based on economic and industrial self-sufficiency in the field of Maritime industry and technology

Ø  Doing all matters related to the maritime industry in the country

Ø  Expansion of industries related to the exploitation and processing of food resources at sea

Ø  Development of new technologies related to the sea in the field of new energy

Ø  Providing facilities for scientific research and higher education at higher levels

Ø  Providing the country's defense needs in order to ensure the country's sovereignty over the southern and northern seas

Main Duties of a Ship-building Engineer:

Ø  Design, development, construction and maintenance of ships and maritime structures

Ø  Design, construction and implementation of maritime systems and structures such as ships, platforms, pipelines and related equipment

Ø  Supervision of the process of construction projects and repair of maritime systems and structures

Ø  Carrying out research activities in the field of maritime systems and structures

Ø  Carrying out research activities in the field of maritime systems and structures

Jobs that Graduates of Ship-building Engineering can Achieve:

Ø  Design and execution engineering in order to implement plans for the construction of commercial and military ships in shipping factories and offshore and offshore facilities

Ø  Supervising engineering in order to monitor the proper implementation of executive plans for the construction of ships and maritime structures.

Ø  Employment in government ministries and organization related to the maritime industry and maritime transportation.

Ø  Cooperation with contractors and executors of industrial and maritime transportation.

Ø  Conduct inspections for state-owned companies, rating agencies and maritime insurance companies.

Ø  Partnership in research related to the maritime industry
