The first lecture of the Conference on Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering was attended by dozens of students, some of them from other areas of engineering. Engineer Bruno Costa, Manager of Atlanticeagle Shipbuilding company, gave the first lecture highlighting the importance of such events “because industry and naval engineers need each other. We are here to foster that exchange of ideas”.
This fourth edition, which takes place on 7th and 8th March at Instituto Superior Técnico, will include a Rhino workshop besides the usual lectures.
Miguel Brito, the president of NAEN – Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Student Group , noted that the main goal of this conference is “to involve the students in the debate and bring them closer to their course” but “this conference is open to all community”.
Engineer Manuel Laranjinha, representative of Wood Group company (Norway), presented the most awaited conference.
The non-governmental organisation Jugend Rettet will be delivering one of the last lectures focused on rescue missions in the Mediterranean Sea.
