2 Mission: Tomorrow's Navy must operate below, above, and on the surface of the sea with high tech ships, subs and exotic craft… The goal of the Naval Architecture major (ENA) is to develop engineers who will meet this challenge!
3 Meeting the Mission! Designs That Withstand Attack Designs That Withstand Accidents Designs That Withstand Nature
4 A Top-Ranked Program: The best undergraduate facilities in the world for learning naval architecture! 120’ tow tank 380’ tow tank Recirculating Water Channel Ballast tank Ship Structures Tester Computer Simulation
5 Field Trips, Internships and Exchanges: A chance to see the real world
6 Hands On Projects! Naval Architecture Design Competitions (EN246, EN358, EN476) New Navy 44 hull laminates Older style Mid’s Design
7 Applying Your Engineering! New YP Structures Submarine Plunging First part is at model speed Second is time-adjusted to full-scale
9 Put your design in service! New Navy 44 Rudder The student-designed rudder is going on the new 44! ModelFull-Scale
10 Capstone Design Projects: Educational, fun, and you choose the topic! Chesapeake Bay research vessel Coast Guard patrol boat New Navy 44 Cleveland fireboat San Francisco pilot boat Baltimore dinner boat Diesel coastal submarine Special operations boat Large USCG Cutter Lobster yacht New YP NYPD Police Boat Harbor Tug
11 Broad Curriculum = Broad Careers! Military careers for USNA ENA grads –Pilot, NFO, SWO, Marines, Subs, EOD, EDO, Spec Ops, O-1 to O-10! Civilian Careers for USNA ENA grads –Naval architect, Design engineer (CE, OE, ME, Systems, Aero., etc), Fortune 500 CEO, yacht designer, test pilot, engineering manager, astronaut, priest, lawyer, stand-up comic, MS, MBA, MD, … USNA Core + Basic Engineering + Engineering Design + Naval Architecture
12 Naval Architecture in the Fleet Industry Focused Mission Ship Concepts T-JPH (JSF Support Ship) Modular Corvette “Blue Knight” Small, Fast, Modular Surface Craft Small, Fast, Modular Surface Combatant High Speed Vessel (SES) High Speed Response Ship Unmanned Surface Vessel – Small (USV-S) Unmanned Surface Vessel – Medium (USV-M) Unmanned Vehicle Combatant (UVC)
14 Is ENA for you? You don’t have to be like this physicist/sailor! “It was hard, but definitely worth it!” - 2006 graduate “The best major at the Academy!” - 2005 graduate “The small classes, great faculty, hands-on cool projects make it a great choice!” - Class of ’07 ENA major
15 Naval Architecture: Think About It! Seawolf LCS-1 40 Knots! 65 Knots! Self Righting The Fleet!
