Students Showcase Marine Design Talent
Friday, May 13, 2016

Meet with the 2016 Marine Engineering Systems Design graduates on May 24 as they showcase their designs and discuss research topics that affect their areas of their work.

The Fisheries and Marine Institute’s Marine Engineering Systems Design (MESD) graduates develop all the internal systems that allow a ship to operate and this year’s graduating class will be sharing their specialized education with faculty, staff and classmates through a series of technical presentations on Tuesday, May 24, 2016.

The presentations provide each of the students with an opportunity to show case their work, highlight their term design projects and demonstrate their communication, design and critical thinking skills. This year, the students have focused on topics such as waste heat use on ships; the energy efficient design index; ship sewage systems in sensitive environments; and the unmanned engine room, amongst many others.

Marine engineering systems design technologists bring ships to life via mechanical systems such as bilge, ballast, firefighting, fuel oil, lube oil, cooling water, compressed air, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and numerous other system components.

These highly skilled individuals are trained in every area of design of a ship’s internals. With a blend of mechanical engineering technology and the principles of naval architecture, these talented MESD graduates design all the components to provide power and move fluids inside the ship. 

A career in MESD is very versatile one, providing training in pipe design, propulsion and structural constraints in an engineering application based learning environment allow graduates the opportunity to adapt their skills in both the marine environment and land-based environments.

Join them in Hampton Hall on May 24 beginning at 8:30 a.m. to learn more. For details on MESD, please visit the program page. To learn about what the team’s activities, check them out on Facebook.
