With the complexity associated wit­h operating in a mar­ine environment, naval architecture is by necessity a team effort with several groups of technically skilled individuals. This inherent complexity of the course means that tools available in this course are less than those used for designing aircraft, and even spacecraft.

Former deputy director and professor emeritus V. G. Idichandy says during the last five years the course has seen tremendous growth. “There has been lots of opportunities in the industry and  all our students get placed in top companies. In the last two years the number of companies, which approa­ched us for taking our students, has been on the rise which shows that our quality of teaching input and students output have been tremendous,” he adds.

Pointing out that Trans­ocean, world’s largest offshore drilling company, had recruited a student this year for an annual pay packet of `28 lakh, Prof Idichandy proudly says  more companies come forward to recruit students from this discipline for a lucrative pay packet.
