Abstract

The design, construction and in-service support of advanced marine vehicles require a wide portfolio of knowledge, skills and competences. Whilst training can be acquired on the job, the ability to work effectively in such an environment from the very outset requires a firm educational base. The requirements for this educational base are discussed and the need for specific courses for naval architects, marine engineers and combat system engineers are developed. A case is made for the central role played by ship and submarine design activities at the heart of such an educational base and possible methods of delivery are discussed by reference to the current courses at UCL. Finally, future challenges facing both academia and industry in ensuring an adequate supply of well educated engineers are postulated and some possible solutions highlighted.
