학과소개

Naval architecture and ocean engineering focuses on research and education in a variety of areas from basic theory to advanced technology on ship and offshore structures. The final goal of the Department lies in the design and production of the reliable and cost-effective transport systems and offshore structures which can carry out missions successfully in harsh ocean environments. The research scopes of naval architecture consist of resistance and propulsion, propulsor, structures and materials, motion and maneuverability, noise and vibration, and welding. Ocean engineering involves various scopes of technical problems that arise during the design, construction, load-out, and operation of various forms of structures developed to meet the needs of offshore petroleum and construction industries. Research on the ocean environment itself is also one of the major research fields of the Department. To meet increasingly complex technical demands, the Department extends research fields to cover rigorous analysis of detailed subjects using powerful computers. In particular, it offers on-board training course on university-owned research and training ships.

Graduates are currently playing active roles in central and local government organizations (e.g., Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade Ministry of Education, Science and Technology), public corporations, and research institutes (e.g., Korea Ocean Research and Development Institute, Korea Marine Equipment Research Institute, Korea Institute of Construction Technology). Also, private companies and corporations dealing with ships, offshore and coastal structures, floating islands and harbors are looking to hire naval and ocean engineers. Some graduates go on to graduate school to further specialize in their discipline in the field of naval architecture and ocean engineering.
