Engineering Department

  • The Engineering Department of the State University of New York Maritime College, Fort Schuyler, Bronx, N.Y., recently held the dedication of its newly constructed ship model basin.

    Prof. Jose Femenia, chairman of the college's engineering department, announced that its availability adds another dimension to the college's highly-ranked naval architecture and ocean engineering curricula. The tank allows students and faculty to become more closely involved in hydrodynamic experimentation related to ships and offshore drilling rigs.

    The ship model basin was designed and constructed by the staff of the SUNY Maritime College's engineering department.

    The basin and ancillary equipment were purchased with nonstate funds, mainly from the Alumni Association college support drive, from the Maritime College at Fort Schuyler Foundation, and from the National Science Foundation.
