  I. Overview

  Naval architecture, ocean engineering and mechanics cover a wide range of knowledge and emphasizes on both theory and practice. It involves scientific principles, innovation, imagination together with the fundamentals of mathematics, physics, mechanics, oceanography, etc. New concepts, technologies and methodologies on the subject are constantly emerging. Since 2009, the International Summer School on Naval Architecture, Ocean Engineering and Mechanics has been providing a valuable learning and mutual exchange opportunity for students to broaden their vision and enrich their experiences.


  In 2017, more than 300 senior undergraduates and graduates from Mainland China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Egypt and Iran joined the two-week summer school.
