Interdisciplinary research collegium in advanced maritime

The education of naval architects, marine engineers and others who are the active contributors to the ship design processes is heavily focussed on engineering fundamentals, often aligned with traditional university course constraints. The concept of a research collegium is described whose aim is to provide an environment where young people in their formative postgraduate years can learn and work in a small, mixed discipline group drawn from the worldwide maritime community to develop their skills whilst completing a project in advanced ship design. The brief that initiates each project sets challenging user requirements which encourage each team to develop an imaginative solution, using their individual knowledge and experience, together with learning derived from teaching which form a common element of the early part of the collegium
