Introduction to Maritime Engineering Design JEE252

Launceston

Introduction

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 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.

Learning Outcomes

ILO 1 Select and apply suitable analysis and design methodologies and creativity in order to produce an engineering solution that satisfies the requirements of a client brief for a maritime engineering design project at a conceptual design level.

ILO 2 Demonstrate and apply knowledge of regulatory, practical and economic constraints in the conceptual design of marine structures, ocean vehicles and maritime engineering systems with a special emphasis in sustainable design.

ILO 3 Effectively combine the use of teamwork, oral and written communication skills, conventional design tools and industry specific software to create the design drawings, digital models and technical documents required to report and assess a maritime engineering design project, at a conceptual level, in accordance with industry standards and codes of practice.

ILO 4 Demonstrate an understanding of wellbeing, sustainability, engineering ethics and human factors in the design context by examining the engineer’s obligations to the environment, the society, their clients, and to the profession.
