The main goal of study module is to provide advanced education and graduate engineers qualified to work successfully in the field related to various aspects of ships. Courses taught include ship buoyancy and stability, ship strength, ship structures, ship production, ship engines and equipment, seakeaping, maneuvering, (computer aided) ship design, but also advanced courses, for instance, ship waves, aero-hydrodynamics of sailing vessels, high speed craft, numerical methods in ship structural design, wave induced loads etc. The department graduates are engineers who are responsible for the design, construction, and/or repair of ships, boats, including: Merchant ships (oil/gas tankers, cargo ships, bulk carriers, container ships), Passenger/vehicle ferries, High speed craft, Yachts (power boats, and other recreational craft), various kinds of fl oating structures etc..
Our graduates typically work for shipyards, shipping companies, design firms and consultancies, equipment manufacturers, regulatory bodies and governments. Many of the department’s graduates now hold prominent positions in the shipbuilding industry in Serbia, Montenegro and other countries all across the globe (Canada, Australia, The Netherlands, etc.).
