Marine Draughting

The Marine Draughting module enables you to work with a naval architect. Because we’re in Cape Town (the ship-building hub of South Africa) we allow you to specialise in this field over two trimesters.

You will work under the guidance and instruction of an internationally qualified Naval Architect.
