Workboat Naval Architecture design study
Hello everyone !
I am new to this forum, I joined to have better idea about boats, my background is commercial shipping (marine engineering with chief engineer license and naval architects for sea going ships), even though I have a strong background about ships (mega ships), but boats are still something different for me....
I am looking for a good school and education program in the U.S to attend (online or distance learning) to have a better understanding about boat design, what I found was only yachts and boats (I am looking for workboat), and the two schools may be good are: Westalwn, and the landing school.
Both schools are approved by the Royal Institution of naval Architects - U.K in which I am a full member with chartered engineer title - so the accreditation is not an issue for me, the main issue is the topic. I am looking to move into the small ships and workboat industry field, even those boats are considered very small and simple when we compare them with large ships, but employers still want to see in your resume something about small ships/boats.
I went through all the topics here, and I search online, and was not able to find anything about workboat design, can anyone advise if any of the mentioned schools teach workboat subjects?
I have a strong background in AutoCAD, Rhino, ORCA, NAVCAD.
Thank you for everyone...
