BACHELOR’S DEGREE IN
Department: Diten – DAD (University of Genoa)
Chair: Prof. Dario Boote
The professional figure of the Nautical engineer, a program unique in Italy, is able to design boats, from the generation of the hulls to the structures, systems, hydrostatic and hydrodynamic calculations, and the preparation of the exteriors and interiors.
The educational degree program concerns both the disciplinary aspects of the Naval engineer and those of the Nautical Designer, allowing an easy entry into the world of work.
The Degree Course in Nautical Engineering ensures a mastery of methods and general scientific content common to other programs of Industrial Engineering, as well as the acquisition of specific professional knowledge in the disciplines of Naval Engineering and Architecture.
The main job opportunities for the Nautical Engineer are: shipbuilding and repair yards for ships and boats; classification institutes / monitoring bodies; professional design and survey offices; and research institutions.
A key factor in terms of employment is the completion of the Master’s degree; in fact, over 80% of Master’s graduates in Yacht Design have found work within 12 months of obtaining their Master’s degree in the above-mentioned fields.
PROGRESSION IN THE STUDIES
After the first year in which the basic scientific skills are given priority, in the following two years the particular disciplines of Nautical Engineering are developed, studying issues related to hydrodynamics, hydrostatics, shipbuilding and propulsion as well as composition and nautical design. In the third year the student can apply the skills acquired in the degree program by having an internship at a major company in the field. Lastly, the final exam consists in the design of a boat up to 24 meters, under the direction of the professors and supervisor.
Particularly the occupational openings of the Ingegneria Nautica Bachelor’s Degree graduated are:
– Vessel and Yacht building and refitting yards (Building and Refitting Shipyards);
– Nautical sector operators;
– Classification Register and Surveying Boards;
– Design and consultancy professional studios.
