B.Tech. Naval Architecture & Ship Building Course

Join our Marine Engineering Degree course and Explore the worldwide opportunities

Naval Architects

Naval architect is a professional engineer who is responsible for the design, construction, ship building and repair of ships. Naval Architecture is a widely job oriented area but the fact is that the number of institutions catering to this course of study is limited. As shipping is becoming more and more commercially important, more efficiently designed ships are the need of the hour. It is here that the chances for a new comer in the area of Naval Architecture/Ship Building look bright. Ships (tankers, cargo ships, passenger liners, ferries; warships), boats, submarines, high-speed crafts, Oil rigs, hover crafts and all structures related to ship building are to be designed by Naval Architects & Ship Building Engineers. They also work on the design and construction of marine installations such as off-shore drilling platforms. On completion of NA & SB Course, the graduates can further study the M.Tech (NA & SB) Courses, Ph.D & Research programmes. Job Opportunities : There are wide Job Opportunities at Present in the International Ship Construction Yards especially, at Korea, Japan & India. Etc.,.


Naval architects have a broad range of employment opportunities worldwide. The student after obtaining the degree can aspire for employment in Ship Building, Shipping, Ship Surveyor, Navy, Coastguard, Classification societies, Dockyards and Shipyards.

The services of Naval Architects are utilized by the ship yards, ship designing institutes, oil rig construction centers, and Naval and Oceanography centers.

They are working as a consultant - providing clients with engineering solutions, technical and commercial guidance, support and project management for concept design studies, new vessel constructions, refits and conversions; They are undertaking maritime research in universities and industry. They work as analyst of ships and marine structures, using the regulations of classification societies and intergovernmental organizations such as the International Maritime Organization.

Naval architects who specialize in construction may take responsibility for the management of a whole shipyard or for sections of it, such as planning, production or the complex operation of fitting out. Naval architects may also occasionally teach courses in higher education institutions.

After Completion of NA & SB, they have the option to join as a Marine Engineer in the Merchant Ships by completing One Year Pre-Sea Graduate Mechanical Engineering Course (GME).

The academy assists necessary guidance for placement for successful meritorious students.
