Department of Ship Technology

The Department is one of the pioneers in the field of Naval Architecture education in this country and was established with an aim to create a new and dynamic generation of Naval Architects to meet the requirements of the Indian Shipbuilding Industry, Ship Classification Societies, R&D organizations, Indian Navy and related organizations. With this in view, a B.Tech. programme in Naval Architecture and Ship Building was started in 1975. This
Department maintains active collaboration and interaction with IITs, foreign Universities, Shipyards and other industries. These organizations have been generous in extending their facilities and expertise to impart training to our students. The fruitful collaboration of this Department with Rostock University, Germany dates back to 1978 and remains as an important milestone in the development of this Department. The curriculum was drawn up and updated in consultation with experts from various academic institutions and industries. This has brought the course curriculum in conformity with international standards.

The Ministry of Surface Transport, Government of India approved the B.Tech. (Naval Architecture & Ship Building) course for the M.O.T. Certificate Examination, thus enabling the B.Tech. Graduates to venture into the field of Marine Engineering also. Yearly intake of the B.Tech programme in Naval Architecture and Ship Building course is 40 of which 12 is reserved for the personnel sponsored by Indian Navy.

The quality of education imparted and the resulting professional competence of the graduates enabled the department to achieve a unique record of 100 percent placement on its graduates in India and abroad. The Department conducts an M.Tech programme in Computer Aided Structural Analysis and Design (CASAD) and has Ph.D programmes too.

The Department provides consultancy services to small and medium sized Shipyards in India and also to Government Organizations like DRDO establishments (NSTL, NPOL, CVRDE), KSNIC, SILK etc. The members of the faculty have been active in conducting several research projects sponsored by D.S.T., Naval Research Board, D.R.D.O. establishments. The Society of Naval Architecture Students (SNAS) was established in 1981. The Society publishes an annual technical journal SHIPSTECHNIC with contributions from researchers and experts in ship related R&D, academic institutions. The journal has achieved repute as one of the few such publications in this country. The society also organizes seminars and lectures on various aspects of ship design, construction and related activities.
