Resources for shipbuilding design and modelling

ShipConstructor Software (SSI), in conjunction with two universities, eight shipyards and five design firms, has created comprehensive college-level materials for the instruction of modern shipbuilding, design and modelling.

These educational resources have been designed to take students with a basic understanding of AutoCAD and provide them with the practical skills and essential knowledge needed to become modellers in a shipyard or marine design agency.

Included are lessons exposing learners to marine materials, classification societies, safety issues, shipbuilding terminology, fabrication strategies, shipyard production drawings and the principles of Design for Production (DFP).
