Are you curious about the exciting field of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering? Look no further!
The University of Michigan’s College of Engineering is hosting an Open House event.
This is your chance to explore the cutting-edge research and state-of-the-art facilities and learn about the program directly from faculty and students.
Built in 1904, the hydrodynamics lab at the University of Michigan has provided generations of students with unique tools and experiences. The laboratory’s 750,000 gallon “tow tank” was the first university-affiliated facility of its kind in the United States and is one of only three on university campuses in the United States. In its 100+ year history, the lab has launched some of the most significant innovations in naval architecture, including the fuel-saving “bulbous bow” technology that’s used on large cargo vessels.
Today, the hydrodynamics lab is still the largest facility of its kind — used both for teaching and for testing new commercial and military vessel designs.
At this event, you’ll have the opportunity to:
1. Learn about the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering program
2. Receive a tour of our laboratory specializing in hydrodynamics
3. Learn about advanced research at the lab and department level
4. Speak with current undergraduate and graduate students
5. Take a ride on the towing tank carriage
