    Hi;

    I'm a mechanical engineering graduate interested in naval architecture and ship design. I'm planing my postgraduate studies ( MSc or PHD) relevant to that area. What are the good universities and courses available??

    Thank You

    If you want to succeed as a yacht designer, there is probably only one that makes sense for you: Westlawn.

    If you want to design sewage treatment plants, gas terminals, breakwaters, oil platforms, or be a small cog in a big machine, then a naval architecture or marine engineering degree will work for you.

    Mr. Smyth, a degree in naval architecture will not qualify a student to design sewage treatment plants, a gas terminal, a breakwater, or any other civil engineering project.

    It will, however, qualify you to design the DDG 1000, LCS 2, SEA LION, and other interesting craft. (Sorry for the all-military examples. My own career was centered in Washington.)

    It all depends upon what you want.

    Oh, and: Our tuition is around CAD$ 15000, not counting the paid internship at the end of the course.

    If you do not live in USA (malith seems to live in Sri Lanka) this statement probably does not make sense for you.
