This unit introduces the student to the overall philosophy, rational thought process and engineering techniques required for the conceptual design of marine structures, ocean vehicles and maritime engineering systems. The unit will also introduce the student to the concepts of engineering ethics, human factors, and sustainability in the context of maritime engineering design. The student will be expected to apply problem solving, design and decision-making methodologies to meet client requirements and to comply with regulatory and industry specific constraints by formulating innovative solutions with intellectual independence. The knowledge gained in this unit will be fundamental for future degree specific design units as well as for the final year capstone design project.
