ONAE 8000 Capstone Design Competition

ONAE 8000 Capstone Design Competition

Every year the students of the Senior Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering class at Memorial University of Newfoundland present ship designs they have developed over the last year to their fellow classmates, professors, and industry professionals. The students pick a ship type of their choosing based on their interests, and start designing their ships from the bottom up, using the skills gained in the classroom and through their work terms.

The students start with defining their requirements and ships mission/purpose, and through these requirements develop a concept ship design. This gives the students an opportunity to hone their engineering skills, gain valuable design experience, and open their minds to try and develop new and innovative designs/practices.

BMT is proud to sponsor these presentations every year, giving a cash prize to the top team, so they can expand on their design or take out their classmates for a well-deserved treat!
