A number of shipbuilding firms and related industries are concentrated in Ehime prefecture and the amount of constructed ships in the area is top in Japan. By a good cooperation with such industries in Ehime area, the special course of naval architecture firstly pursues the education of the future naval architects who can lead the industry not only in the actual design and construction works but also the future developments in this field. The course also tries to look into the difficulties encountered in the design and construction works, and after picking up some of them, pursues the research and developments to get closer to the solutions.
The Naval Architecture course is funded by the endowment of Imabari Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.
