Naval Engineering professionals must have extensive knowledge in design and structural calculation, in order to avoid mistakes in their work. At TECH, we want to offer you the best training so you can update your knowledge in the field” 

The Postgraduate Certificate in Structures in Naval Engineering is a program of the highest academic level that aims to specialize professionals in the field, enabling them to carry out their work with the highest quality and safety requirements. It is a very complete  program, imparted by professionals with years of experience, and which includes the latest advances in the field. 

In this educational program, the methodology to be followed in the calculation of structures in shipbuilding is reviewed, starting with the two main calculation methods currently used, the design based on rules, and the design through direct calculation or numerical simulation. It is essential to understand every vessel is different, subjected to different stresses and classified under different typology, so no two ships will be the same, not even sister ships, which are the closest in similarity. This makes shipbuilding a form of protocol engineering in which each structural calculation is unique for each type of vessel. 

Likewise, structural design principles will be explained, including construction systems and materials used. The morphology of the different specific areas in shipbuilding, decks, bulkheads or lining, will also be focused on in detail. The minimum parameters for each are detailed depending on the structural system, as well as its different elements, without forgetting the importance of welding and its calculation methodology. 

It will also cover the loads to which ships are subjected, both internally and externally, so-called sea loads, and specific loads per ship type; as well as the different sections and their corresponding morphology and calculation methodology, including plans, so-called key plans and the different types of detail within them. Finally, the different structures annexed to the main structure of the ship will be detailed, such as ramps, cranes, heliports, propulsion elements and power generators, including anchoring and mooring elements. 

It should be noted that since this is a 100% online Postgraduate Certificate, students are not constrained by fixed schedules or commutes, but can access the contents at any time of the day, balancing their work or personal life with their academic life.
