B.Sc.Naval Architecture

Tuition fee €2,700.00 per year
Application fee €200.00 one-time


Bachelor of Naval Architecture has a grasp of the essential principles of technological science. Bachelor understands the fundamentals of marine design, including flotation, stability, ship and marine technology, resistance and propulsion, ship structures, design theory and practice, management subjects. Naval Architecture aims to develop engineering designers with a capacity for the creative synthesis of science, engineering, technology and business. Together these factors are the key to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of all types of ships, boats and other fixed and floating marine structures: from supertankers to sailing yachts, and from fast ferries to offshore wind turbines and oil platforms. Qualification degree is awarded to a student who:
- is able to apply knowledge and problem solution competencies in a new or unfamiliar environment in wider contexts related with the area of his studies;
- is able to integrate his knowledge and solve complicated problems, formulate decisions, owing partial or limited information and taking social and ethic responsibility;
- is able to convey his conclusions, knowledge and basics of logic in a clear and ambitious manner both to specialists and non specialists.
