Naval Engineer Degree

ESTACA Shipping Engineering : Mastering the challenges of a sector in full mutation

Diversification and energy management, innovative propulsion systems, comfort, air quality, digitalisation, intelligent and autonomous ships, depollution, supply chain : the naval industry is constantly evolving and there are many areas for development. In all these areas, engineers have an essential role to play in meeting the many challenges: they lead ambitious projects in both design and production, organise and lead teams, develop surface and underwater vehicles of all sizes, and help to improve environmental impact. The new naval sector responds to a real need for expertise from companies in the sector.

SHIPPING ENGINEER

Diversification and energy management, innovative propulsion systems, comfort, air quality, digitalisation, intelligent and autonomous ships, pollution control, supply chains: the shipping industry is constantly changing and there are many areas for development. In all these areas, engineers play an essential role in facing the many challenges: they conduct ambitious projects in both design and production, organize and lead teams, develop surface and underwater vehicles of all sizes, and help to improve the environmental impact. The new shipping course meets a real need for expertise from companies in this sector.

From the preparatory cycle to fifth year :
a curriculum to prepare for the shipping industry

Being a naval engineer means working on diversification and energy management, innovative propulsion systems, comfort, air quality, digitalisation, intelligent and autonomous ships, ocean depollution and the ship building supply chain. It may be technical management of a development programme, conducting tests, developing production methods, optimising quality processes, prospecting for and negotiating contracts.

The shipping training programme prepares for the major challenges facing the sector. It starts with the preparatory cycle. During these first 2 years, students are introduced to the main concepts in the shipping sector. During the 3-year engineering course, students carry out numerous application projects.

The PLUS of shipping engineering

More than 400 hours of training provided by working engineers.

4 application projects anchored in innovation and carried out during the course.

12 months of compulsory internships to learn about the shipping engineering.

Execution internship
in 1st or 2nd year at Construction navale Bordeaux (CNB): work on optimisation of logistics flows,

Engineering student internship
in 4th year at Naval Group: site coordination on submarines nuclear,

End-of-studies internship
in 5th year at Yacht and Superyacht Research Group: research project aimed at gaining new insights into the fluid dynamics of high performance sailing yachts.

WAVE Association : proposes many activities related to the nautical field and innovative maritime projects: design of all the propulsion and construction of the cockpit of a small solar-powered electric catamaran to take part in the Solar & Energy Boat Challenge in Monaco or the Green Turtle project, a robot turtle tracking marine waste.

The school's sailing club, ESTACA Sailing proposes to introduce students to the world of sailing and allows them to practice their passion. It also has projects, notably the Kiteboat Speed, construction of a support towed by a kite wing and mounted on foils, all adapted for the practice of handisport.
