A Naval Engineer designs and oversees the construction and repair of marine craft such as ships, barges, tugs, and dredges; underwater craft such as submarines and torpedoes; and surface devices such as buoys and floats. They help make life smooth sailing. Be it a tanker or tugboat, a commercial ship or cruise ship, Naval Engineer's help keep it all afloat.

        A person in this career may do one of the many following tasks;

        Work with other marine engineers to establish the arrangement of boiler room equipment, propulsion machinery, heating/ventilating systems, piping, and other functional equipment.

        Design complete hulls and structures following assigned specifications, test data and standards of safety/efficiency.

        Design layouts of craft interiors, including cargo space, passenger compartments, ladder wells, ballast, and cockpit.

        Evaluate the performance of a craft during dock and sea trial to determine need for changes or improvements.

        Oversees the physical construction and testing of all craft prototypes.

        Analyze buoyancy and stability data

        Study design requirements and establish basic specs of a craft, such as size, weight, speed, propulsion, displacement, and draft.

        Performing complex calculations to determine the functional, spatial and power requirements of marine machinery

A bachelor's degree in an appropriate engineering disciple is almost always required for jobs in this field. A master's degree or doctorate in a related engineering discipline may also be required. An instructional program will require classes that prepare individuals to apply mathematical and scientific principles to the design, development and operational evaluation of self-propelled, stationary, or towed vessels operating on or under the water, including inland, coastal and ocean environments; and the analysis of related engineering problems such as corrosion, power transfer, pressure, hull efficiency, stress factors, safety and life support, communications and sensing, environmental hazards and factors, and specific use requirements.
