Abstract : This report reviews the structural engineering curriculum contained in the Ocean Engineering and Naval Architecture Departments in North American colleges. The report includes brief descriptions of the undergraduate and graduate programs including marine structure courses at the various schools. The report queries individuals and/or organizations representing the various branches of the total marine industry that are concerned to some significant degree with structural analysis and design. Their impressions and expectations regarding the education programs, their satisfaction with their own basic knowledge of and their confidence in their current marine structural analysis and design practices, and their views on how their own or the marine industry's circumstances with respect to these matters might be bettered, were sought. The report is finalized by providing recommendations towards improving marine structural education and the role the Ship Structure Committee can play.
