Prerequisites: PHY 1103

NSE 2013 Principles of Naval Sensors (3-0-3)

The course is designed to introduce the basic concepts of Naval Sensors and their applications to naval operations and warfare. It starts with the definitions and concepts of Radio and Soundwaves and their propagation mechanisms. Various types of Radars, Sonars, and Electrooptical sensors are described. Their applications are explained to familiarize the students with the roles of these sensors in naval scenarios.

NSE 2023 Oceanography and Meteorology (3-1-3)

This course introduces basic meteorology and oceanography concepts, which impact naval operations at sea. The oceanography segment provides a comprehensive introduction to different branches of Oceanography; physical and geological, with particular emphasis on the Arabian Gulf. In Meteorology, students will acquire this knowledge by studying all weather-related topics such as the structure of the atmosphere, the air and water movements, the temperature, the pressure, the wind, the clouds, the air masses, the weather fronts, and tropical revolving storms and avoidance.

NSE 2033 Principles of Naval Architecture (3-1-3)

The course aims at providing the students with the knowledge about the Ship Structure & DC on basic concepts of ship stability and also about material used onboard ship including its preservation. It also aims to provide the information regarding basic stability conditions. It also covers effects of various loading conditions and methods to calculate stability in case of damage to the ship structure. Finally, students will also be given practical demonstrations of various loading conditions and states of a ship in laboratory environments.

NSE 2043 Ship Propulsion I (3-1-3)

The course aims at providing the students with comprehensive knowledge of Marine Engineering Systems onboard warships with special emphasis on theoretical concepts and their application. In this course, students will learn administrative and functional organization of the Marine Engineering department onboard warships.
