Liaison With Maritime Industry Subject Of Stevens Tech Meeting

Representatives of 19 companies with maritime operations met recently with administrators of Stevens Institute of Technology to discuss a liaison program between the maritime industry and the engineering and science college.

The meeting was hosted by Anthony J. McAllister, chairman of the Finance Committee, McAllister Brothers, Inc., and a graduate of Stevens in 1921, and Dr. Kenneth C. Rogers, president of Stevens.

The proposed liaison would affect a program in which members from the maritime industry would cooperate in establishing a curriculum of a current and practical point of view to the industry; arrange short courses, seminars and workshops of interest to the industry; provide for a transferral of technical information, and participate in research and development projects.

The liaison would also set up programs to promote graduate studies in fields of interest to the industry, and to foster careers in the industry through the recruitment of graduate and undergraduate students.

Stevens offers graduate programs in ocean engineering that lead to the master's and doctoral degrees. The Institute is also the home of the Davidson Laboratory, a research facility with a worldwide reputation in the areas of ship hydrodynamics, terrestrial and amphibious vehicles, and building technology.

The history of Davidson Laboratory and areas of current research were discussed by Dr. John P. Breslin, director of the laboratory, during the meeting..Dr. Breslin explained the laboratory had pioneered in the development of the use of small models to predict the performance of sailing yachts, including all America's Cup defenders since the 1930s, all types of merchant and naval ships and water-based a i r c r a f t , planing boats and surface-effect ships.
