    Hi, guys!

    Can anyone explain to me the differences between naval architecture and marine engineering?
    I've searched on the web but I still don't really get it.

    Thanks!

    Hi, they are a conjoined course. Basically you are taught naval architecture in a conjoined degree with engineering. The naval architecture helps the engineering side and the engineering side helps the naval architecture.

    -Naval Architecture is basically the study of ship science. It's engineering applied to anything "ship based" so for example Hull and Propulsor/ Ship performances at sea, Ship structures/design etc.

    -Marine Engineering is basically a much 'broader version' of the above. Think of it like Mechanical Engineering but applied to everything Marine related.

    Therefore Marine Engineering covers both Naval Architecture but also Marine machinery. I hope that makes sense
