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

The Postgraduate Diploma in Shipbuilding 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.

The program will serve as a tour of the methodology to be followed in calculating structures in Shipbuilding, taking into account the two calculation methods currently in use, namely, rule-based design and direct numerical simulation design. 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 Shipbuildinga form of protocol Engineering in which each structural calculation is unique for each type of vessel. 

An important part of the program is directed towards the basic engineering of facilities, 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 knowledge of which will be updated, 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. 

Aspects of Detailed Engineering will also be discussed starting from Basic Engineering, with the aim of developing the necessary technical information for the production phase of a Shipbuilding project. This section will be based on the use of current 3D modeling technologies and design tools used in Detailed Engineering, and their impact on the efficiency of a vessel's construction phase, ranging from hull shapes to virtual reality and its use in PLM systems. Finally, this program aims to reinforce student knowledge in the fields related to ship production and repair, emphasizing the different disciplines, specialties and latest trends in shipyard production and organization. 

It should be noted that as this is a 100% online Postgraduate Diploma, the student is not conditioned by fixed schedules or the need to move to another physical location, but can access the contents at any time of the day, balancing their work or personal life with their academic life.
