Course 2. Marine Engineering - Kevin Prince (Gibbs & Cox, Inc.). This course reviews marine engineering functional requirements for ship design, addressing ship design phases, systems engineering analyses and integration, propulsion plant design, electrical generation plant design, and auxiliary system pump selection.

Course 3. Sailing Yacht Performance Analysis - Drs. Robert Beck and Kevin Maki (University of Michigan). This course will focus on different analyses of the forces and moments on a sailing yacht, airfoil theory, keel and rudder design, sail design, model testing, and the use of computers in yacht performance analysis.

Four new panel discussions have been added to this year’s expo schedule: Electric Ships – A Shipbuilders Perspective; Ocean Energy – How Will It Be Developed?; Unmanned and Autonomous Ships of the Future; and Efficient Shipping in the Greenhouse Gas Era.
