The Maritime Technology division offers education in naval architecture. The objective is the formation of M. Sc. engineers having a specialist know-how in the design, construction, drive, operation and operating of maritime systems including ships and offshore installations.
We endeavour to train the students in the calculation and construction issues relating to large steel constructions and to offer them a thorough knowledge of the hydrostatics and hydrodynamics of floating and navigating objects.
Together with Urgent FM we made a podcast about the Maritime Technology Division. Podcast is in Dutch (Nederlands) and available here or on Spotify.
Construction and design of ships and other floating structures
The courses in the field of maritime constructions deal with various aspects of ships and other marine structures:
functions and general view of ship types and offshore constructions;
general arrangement of a ship;
function and constructive design of the hull parts;
strength and constructive design of the whole ship hull;
Acquire theoretical insight into the behaviour of ships in shallow and confined waters such as access channels, canals and harbours, and introduction to common methods for treating related problems.
An introduction to the research topics is mentioned on this site.
