“We will build new ships to carry man forward into the universe, to gain a new foothold on the moon and to prepare for new journeys to the worlds beyond our own.” ~George W. Bush Naval architecture and shipbuilding or ship technology deal with the study of the design, construction, maintenance, and repair of marine vehicles such as designing and developing ships and submarines, warships, submarines, hovercraft, hydrofoils and merchant ships etc. One of the naval architect’s main responsibilities is actively ensuring the design and analysis of any issue that may arise and develop a plan to fix them. This may include ensuring that all naval architecture, ship structures, and ship designs are as cost-effective as possible. They typically work full time in indoor and outdoor environments, although overtime may be required depending on the needs of the company.
