Project Description

MIT Sea Grant is working a body of research in the area of ship system design and has a range of projects available for mechanical, electrical, naval architecture, and computer science students. The overarching goal of these projects is creating software for use in ship system design. Some examples of specific projects include ship thermal management and cooling system design, electrical power corridor design, and design space exploration using the tools developed. All projects will apply to ships with power-dense architectures.

Pre-requisites

Some coding experience is helpful but not mandatory. C++ desired; Python acceptable.
