Bachelor  Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering with Honours

The Ocean Engineering panel runs the Bachelor Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering programme which offer students various topics related to naval architecure and offshore engineering fields. This programme is accredited by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) and the Royal Institution of Naval Architecture (RINA). The area of studies include the ship and offshore design, system design, performance and dynamic behaviour of marine vehicles such as ships and offshore structures. In order to achieve this, students are exposed to important courses such as Naval Architecture, Ship and Offshore Design, Ship and Offshore Structure, Marine Management, Environment and Safety, Marine and Offshore Engineering Systems and many more. The courses will equip students to solve complex naval architecture and offshore engineering problems through various teaching and learning methods including laboratory works. Students can get benefit from the laboratory facilities especially towing tank facilities in Marine Technology Center. In addition, the usage of software such as Rhino, Matlab, Maxsurf and Ansys CFD will expose students as the added value for their knowledge.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this programme are essentially Naval Architects, but with applied knowledge on offshore engineering. They could be registered with the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) under the category of Naval Architect and join the Institute of Engineers Malaysia (IEM).

The Maritime Industry encompasses all  forms of maritime activity and can be  divided into several segments namely, Shipbuilding & Ship Repair, Offshore Structure and Vessels Fabrication, Ocean & Coastal Shipping Port Services, Marine Professional Services, Maritime Defence and Law Enforcement, Government Authorities & Marine/Maritime Associations, Marine and Inland Fishing, Marine Tourism, Marine Mining, Marine Environment and Marine Products & Services.

There are excellent employment opportunities in all of these segments of the maritime industry.

Naval Architects have a wide range of employment opportunities, not limited to areas such as Ship and Offshore Vessel Design, Construction and Repair, Consultancy, Marketing and Sales, Operations, Regulation, Surveying and Overseeing, Research and Development and also in the Education and Training sector. 

Naval Architects and Offshore Engineers play a vital role in the delivery of the many complex and challenging projects being developed. This is possible since they have the ability to model and solve a problem, describe and deliver an economical solution and then supervise and manage the work through to completion. The end product needs to be feasible, economical, safe, delivered on time, as well as respectful to the environment. All of these require a special combination of aptitude, vision and commitment. 

Each type of work has its own distinctive character and offers opportunities for initiative and imagination in a wide variety of technical and managerial posts as well as opportunities for foreign travel. The workplace may be a large company, a small group, a consultancy or a government department.
