Naval Engineering is a constantly evolving sector that requires qualified professionals trained in the use of the latest tools in the field”

The Postgraduate Diploma in Basic Naval Engineering is a program of the highest academic level that aims to educate 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.
Specifically, the program covers structural, outfitting and electrical Basic Naval Engineering as a basis for Detailed Engineering, including the necessary requirements for documentation and mandatory calculations to obtain approval from shipowners, classification societies and the flag authority. Another important aspect of detail Engineering, which will contribute to professional specialization, is learning how to use 3D modeling tools and innovative virtual reality methodologies. 

Likewise, this Postgraduate Diploma will give students the keys to perform the conceptual design for vessels, which aims to provide a higher level of detail, especially identifying and defining those features that have a significant effect on other features of the vessel, including cost. Structural design principles will also be explained, including construction systems and materials used. 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. 

Finally, the Postgraduate Diploma focuses on Basic Naval Engineering of installations, machinery and electricity in naval vessel or craft projects. This section is of vital importance to any project, both for professionals in naval engineering of armament and machinery, as they will update their knowledge of this, and for anyone working in any sector in the industry, as knowledge of the core of the facilities on board will be covered, all of which will qualify professionals and strengthen their profiles for this particular niche in the field.
