In order to provide the opportunity for practicing engineers to further their knowledge and to become more competent in the fields of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering offers a non-degree graduate level certificate program in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering.
The certificate program offers two tracks: Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering
Credits earned in this program will be transferable to the Master's degree program sin Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Thermodynamic properties of gases and vapors relating to power generating devices, work-energy relations, combustion, and heat exchangers. Performance analyses and design concepts of gas turbines, internal combustion engines, steam power plants and heat exchanger equipment from theoretical and applied viewpoints. Prerequisites: MAE 312 and MAE 315.
Engineering principles as applied to the analysis and design of systems for automatically controlling man or machine environments. Course encompasses fundamentals of heating, ventilating, air conditioning, refrigeration, cryogenics, and design of building energy systems. Prerequisites: MAE 312 and MAE 315.
The concepts and algorithms of computational intelligence and their applications to engineering optimization problems will be discussed. The topics to be covered include artificial neural networks, evolutionary optimization and swarm intelligence. Both single and multi-objective optimization problems with continuous and/or discrete variables will be examined as well.
Students entering the Certificate program in Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering should meet the minimum university admission requirements (Graduate Admission)
Bachelor of Science degree (or equivalent) in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, or a related field
Estimated rates for the 2022-23 academic year. Rates are subject to change. Anyone that is not a current Virginia resident will be charged non-resident rates. That includes international students.
