How to become cruise architect

Recommended Posts

[quote name='Pierre G']My son loves cruising (is passionate) and is considering being an architect (specifically for cruise ships). He would like to know if you have any advice of how to go about this (education)? Thank you in advance![/QUOTE]

Naval architecture is a form of engineering which in reality is mathematics and physics. A good grounding of these subjects at school would be essential. There are relatively few places to study naval architecture in the US and in the UK and competition for places is high. I would get your son to write off to some of the naval architecture schools to begin a dialogue as soon as possible, asking what they require for admittance. I can recommend Webb Institute in NY where I am a Board Member as a good start.

Good luck and best wishes.
