Department of Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering

Faculty Members

Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering is increasingly vital in the search for energy resources in the context of the Blue Economy. However, Bangladesh is yet to have any formal education in this sector, especially in the field of Offshore Engineering. To fill this gap, the only specialized public maritime university, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Maritime University, Bangladesh (BSMRMU) has introduced the Department of Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering. The department will help the nation to meet the engineering needs of the maritime and offshore industries by providing specialized knowledge pertinent to these industries.

Graduates from this department will be able to develop their careers as structural engineers, naval architects, subsea engineers, drilling engineers, and project managers. In their challenging career, they will need to design, plan and manage the construction, installation, operation, maintenance of ships, offshore platforms, and subsea systems.

The department started its formal journey under the Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET) by introducing a Bachelor Programme in Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering. The first batch of BSc in Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering program started their class in January 2018.

Students learn about

  • Ship Design
  • Transport Phenomena
  • Applied Finite Element Methods
  • Environmental impacts of naval and offshore engineering
  • Mechanics of materials
  • Propulsion and energy systems
  • Offshore structures, survey, and engineering management

The Bachelor of Science degree in Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering program has modern laboratory facilities that prepare the student for the challenges of the 21st century. In this context design and construction of a 120 m long towing tank along with an ocean basin has been undertaken by the University.

The first and second-year courses focus on building strong conceptual and analytical abilities in the basic subjects of Thermofluids, Mathematics, Engineering Mechanics, Physics, Chemistry, English and Bangla literature, Sociology and Economics, etc. The third and fourth-year courses introduce students to the basics of Ship Structure and Design, Numerical Analysis, Marine Hydrodynamics, Marine Engine Propulsion, Safety Analysis, and Offshore Engineering. Students take part in a Ship Design project and presentation in the third year and also in thesis work in the final year to develop their research skills and work on both experimental and simulation-based works.
