Gain experience of a whole boat engineering discipline, covering all aspects of design and manufacture, right through to launch, test and commissioning. As well as computer based design work, you'll also be involved in other activities such as computer simulation modelling and physical model tank testing.

As a Naval Architect, you won’t just be involved in the design of vessels but will be able to get involved with aspects of manufacture through to launch, test and commissioning.

Follow your passion with the following responsibilities

Naval Architecture is a whole boat engineering discipline. This means that as a Naval Architect you’ll not only be involved in the design of vessels, but also all aspects of manufacture right through to launch, test and commission. In the case of our businesses, you’ll work to ensure that our surface ships and submarines do what they should do. A large part of the work involves computer based design. However, you’ll also get extensively involved in other activities too – such as computer simulation modelling and physical model tank testing.

As a minimum requirement you’ll need to have obtained, or be predicted to obtain, a 2.2 in your Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in one of the following subjects: Naval Architecture or Marine Engineering. We will also consider students with an Aeronautical/Aerospace degree if you're willing to convert to Naval Architecture.
