The Graduate school of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering was established on the basis of the undergraduate major of Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding which was founded in 1973. The master's course of naval architecture was introduced in 1980. In the year of 1985 when ocean engineering major was added, a doctorate program was established. Since then the School has been implementing on hand programs thanks to the support from the world biggest shipyard, Hyundai Heavy Industries. Also the School has been successfully implementing programs based on the industry-university cooperation by taking advantage of UOU's geographical adjacency to Hyundai Heavy Industries.
The School has some cutting edge equipment such as a square water tank which was installed first in South Korea in 1996 and a circulating water channel. On top of that the School has each and every facility to enhance education and research- a structure experiment lab, a vibration and noise detection lab, a two-dimensional current tank, a computational dynamics lab, the CIM training center, a thermo transformation lab, a reference books room, a seminar room, a design room, and a computer room.
Initially the Department of Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding set its educational goal on these two areas but it has been restructuring its curriculum for students to acquire theories on the state-of-the art shipbuilding technology and design an environmentally friendly vessel. Recently the emphasis is placed on design technology for a next generation environmentally friendly vessel, shipbuilding system technology, development of an optimal ship model, a performance test and so on. All of these are prepared to produce creative and self-motivated researchers who will contribute to maintaining the South Korea's world top position in shipbuilding.
The Department of Oceanic Engineering has its educational goal on nurturing knowledge and skills regarding the development of marine resources, shipping and transportation, and prevention of ocean pollution. The courses offered include studies on constructing ocean structures for oil, gas and minerals as well as artificial steel reefs and floating platforms. There are also courses about cables, pipelines, deep sea unmaned probes, and automatic navigation submersibles.
The curriculum has recently been redirected to enhance skills related to design and build a cutting edge structure which will be used in deep sea or polar regions to probe energy sources. As such the department's goal is to educate students to become creative problem solvers being knowledgable about ocean engineering.
