As a Naval Architect, you won't just be involved in the design of vessels but will be able to get involved with aspects of manufacture through to launch, test and commissioning.
Naval Architecture is a whole boat engineering discipline. This means that as a Naval Architect you'll not only be involved in the design of vessels, but also all aspects of manufacture right through to launch, test and commission. In the case of our businesses, you'll work to ensure that our surface ships and submarines do what they should do.
A large part of the work involves computer based design. However, you'll also get extensively involved in other activities too – such as computer simulation modelling and physical model tank testing.
