On completion of this unit, students will have the knowledge and skills to be able to demonstrate a comprehension of the principles relating to ships stability and seaworthiness and be able to calculate statical stability of a ship while acknowledging the importance of dynamical stability, making sure that the vessel complies with the IMO stability criteria under all loaded conditions and calculate the vessel's stability for all stages of the intended voyage.

This unit builds on the knowledge gained in year 1 and meets the learning outcomes set out in Table A -II/1 of STCW 2010 and detailed in the Maritime Training Package MAR50315.
