2013-2016 Program

Admission requirements:

Applicants to Bachelor’s Degree (3-year) Studies in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering need to submit their Italian High School Degree or other equivalent degree from foreign schools recognized to be suitable by the University Board of Admission. All foreign candidates must have a good knowledge (B2) of spoken and written Italian (B1 for Chinese students). Adequate background knowledge is also required for admission. Such knowledge will be assessed by a mandatory admission test. Applicants who, at this test, achieve less than our published minimum score, may still enrol. However, they will be required to take some headstart courses (so called “obblighi formativi aggiuntivi” – OFA – Additional Educational Requirements). Information about test outcome is published on the Polytechnic School web site

EDUCATIONAL AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

The aim of Bachelor’s Degree (3-year) Studies is to provide professional education and training necessary to a Naval Architect and Marine Engineer. This first step in a Naval Architect’s education and training has its natural continuation in the Laurea Magistrale in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. The Bachelor’s Degree course in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering aims to provide students with an adequate knowledge of general scientific methods and contents designed to develop a strong scientific culture in mathematics, physics, and chemistry. The course also teaches more specific professional subjects related to Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, namely in naval architecture, ship construction, and ship systems and equipment. The course further aims to help students develop team-work as well as other critical skills for the solution of any technical problems a modern Naval Architect and Marine Engineer is expected to face. Also the ability to take up technical as well as organization responsibility roles and to keep one’s know-how constantly updated will be fostered, through internships with companies in the marine industry. Acquired skills and competences will be applied in several team-works conducted with other students for the final examination.

FINAL EXAMINATION (THESIS DEFENSE)

A comprehensive project-work designed to assess a candidate’s technical-scientific knowledge is required for the Final Examination. The project is carried out during the second semester of the third year. It deals with ships and is based on student team-work led by teachers. Upon project completion, candidates will be defending their thesis and answer questions raised by an ad hoc Examination Board.

JOB OPPORTUNITIES FOR UNDERGRADUATES

Typical job placements for Naval Architects and Marine Engineers are in production, management and organization, technical-commercial businesses, manufacturing, and service companies. Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering graduates generally land their first jobs in: shipyards for construction and repair of ships, yachts, and other marine crafts; marine resources exploitation companies; shipping companies, classification societies and regulatory bodies; Navy technical corps; ship design and ship inspection companies.

VENUES

First year classes are held at Padiglione D of Fiera del Mare in Genoa. Second and third year classes are held at the University buildings in Via Opera Pia and Via Montallegro in Albaro, Genoa.
