Marine Engineering is not as
simply categorized as , for example, civil, mechanical, electrical, or
chemical engineering. It is an integrated engineering effort comprising
parts of many engineering disciplines directed to the development and design
of systems of transport, warfare, exploration, and natural resource
extraction that have only one thing in common, namely, that they operate in,
or upon the surface of, a body of water.
From a functional point of view, a ship is a most complex vehicle which must
be reliably self sustaining in its element for extended periods of time. A
ship is perhaps the most multipurpose of vehicles, have more built-in
functions than does any other vehicle type. As a part of a transportation
and military system. the ship contains a greater variety of components than
any other vehicle.
Marine Engineers and Naval Architects
The division of responsibilities between naval architects and marine
engineers are seldom sharp, and it differs from one activity to another.
Marine Engineers are, in general, principally responsible for the
engineering systems, including the main propulsion plant, the powering and
mechanical aspects of the ship functions such as steering, anchoring, cargo
handling, weapon systems, heating, ventilation, refrigeration, air
conditioning, electrical power generation and distribution, and interior and
Navel Architects are, in general, primarily concerned with the hydrodynamic
and hull form characteristics of the ship, the structural design of the
hull, maneuverability characteristics of the vehicle, and its stability to
survive and endure in the marine environment.
