Diploma of Technology, Naval Architecture – Emily White


Growing up, I was always into design, and
layouts, and figuring out where things went, and how they would fit. So, I was interested in trying a program that
could really adapt everything that I was into, and this just seemed to fit me perfect. I’m in my final year in the Naval Architecture
program, and for this we need to complete a complete design project for a vessel of
our choice. I’m designing a Pure Car and Truck Carrier,
also known as a PCTC Vessel. It’s going to be operating in Europe, and I’ll
be transporting 4000 vehicles. With my vessel, I was interested in trying
to produce a large ship that was actually environmentally friendly, which is hard to
do. But, considering the type of engine that I chose,
which is a marine engine, electrical gas injected MEGI, it actually reduces that amount of emissions as well
as pollution. Trying to cut back on those emissions is really
what we’re trying to succeed at now in the shipping industry, because that is what our
clients are looking for. Doing this project, its consisted of a full
years work, you spend most of your time in the lab, you communicate with your instructors,
you get their help, their knowledge. They challenge your ideas and your thoughts,
they’re not necessarily saying that you’re wrong, but they want to know your reasoning. My real passion for Naval Architecture is
really just going in and doing ship surveys. I wanna be the one to figure out why something
defected or got damaged, and how we’re going to fix it, why it was like this, what could
have been done better. That is what I really want to get into, I
just want to be a ship surveyor.
