Aims

Graduate university study in Naval Architecture trains future experts who will work on jobs and tasks of designing and building different kinds and types of floating objects, developing and supervising technological processes, especially concerning construction and maintenance of floating objects and marine technology objects, jobs related to classification and inspection institutions, and other jobs in the broader field of naval architecture and marine technology engineering, that is, maritime affairs.

This study programme enables specialisation in the following areas:

         • Design and Construction of Floating Objects
         • Technology and Organization of Naval Architecture

The study programme follows recommendations from the Bologna Declaration that refer to programme quality assurance, mobility, and diploma recognition.
