The department is one of the pioneers in the field of Naval Architecture education in the country. It was established in 1974, in the technical collaboration with Rostock University, Germany. It has over the years established a firm foothold and name in Shipbuilding and other associated industries by producing dynamic generations of Naval Architects to the meet the requirements of the International Shipbuilding industry, Ship Classification Societies, R&D organizations, the Indian Navy and other related institutions. The department maintains active collaboration and interaction with many Universities abroad, IIT Chennai, IIT Kharagpur and various shipyards and classification societies, students as well as faculty members from all over the country and from abroad.

The students obtain practical knowledge from all these sources through regular visits and training programs. It’s highly qualified team of faculty members has published more than 150 research papers in technical journals of national and international repute.

The B.Tech. (Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding) course is recognized by the ministry of Surface Transport, Government of India, for eligibility to the M.O.T certificate examination. This course has also been accredited by the Royal Institute of Naval Architects (RINA), UK in 1994, as satisfying the Engineering Council (UK) requirement for the registration of Stage 1 of the Chartered Engineers Section. The Indian Navy has identified this department as a center for training in Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding. Cadets from Indian Navy are admitted to our B.Tech. Program every year.

M.Tech. program in Computer Aided Structural Analysis and design was successfully launched by the department in the academic year 1995-96. The duration of the course is 4 semesters, where the first two are fully devoted for the course work and the last two for the project work. The project works are carried out in the house and also at various organizations such as SERC, IRO, NPOL, EMRC etc.

The department commenced the PhD program in 1996. The research areas by and large falls in the categories:

Structures (Marine and Civil)

Naval Architecture (Shipbuilding, Computer applications)

Ship/Marine hydrodynamics

Ship Stability

Ship Recycling
