Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering (NAME) at UBC is an interdisciplinary, industry-focused program that trains students in the design and construction of ships and other structures in the marine environment while contributing to engineering innovation through applied research that directly benefits industry partners and the broader sector.
The Marine Systems Initiative (MSI) has introduced content and research programs specifically designed to create highly-qualified electrical and shipboard systems engineers for the shipbuilding and industrial marine sector.
The Master of Engineering in Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering (MEng NAME) involves 8 months of intensive coursework followed by a 4-month internship or project.
Students in this program take a specialized set of courses that draw material from Mechanical, Civil, and Materials Engineering, and that focus specifically on the design, construction, maintenance and operation of waterborne vehicles.
This interdisciplinary, industry-focused program offers students an innovative education that will enable them to design and construct ships and other structures in the marine environment, and therefore prepare them for immediate and stimulating work in a vital and growing industry.
