About Us

UFRJ's Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering Department comprises the Polytechnic School's Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering Department (DENO) and COPPE's Ocean Engineering Program (PEnO), which act together in teaching, research and extension activities.
DENO supports the undergraduate course in Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering and offers various courses for the undergraduate program in Petroleum Engineering.
PEnO is responsible for the Master's and Doctor's Degree courses in Ocean Engineering.
UFRJ's Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering Department has some of the most modern laboratories worldwide, such as the Subsea Technology Laboratory  (LTS) and the Ocean Technology Laboratory (LabOceano), which can simulate characteristics of the marine environment, such as waves and currents and their effects on floating structures.
UFRJ's Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering Department is also internationally prominent, having agreements with some of the most prestigious institutions in Ocean Engineering worldwide for cooperation in teaching and research.


Undergraduate Program: Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering

UFRJ Polytechnic School's Naval Engineering Program was established within the context of the inception of the Brazilian naval construction industry, in 1959, aimed at training professionals related to naval design and construction and maritime machines.
The program later extended the list of courses offered focusing on other segments, such as offshore engineering, waterway transportation and special vessels.
Using the solid knowledge acquired in the Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering undergraduate program on hydrodynamic, structural and mechanic aspects, undergraduates may work in the naval industry on heavy mechanics; machinery manufacturing; equipment design and construction; projects for ships, motorboats, sailboats and oil platforms; waterway (Maritime and River) transportation; and, uniquely, also in countless activities involving sustainable exploitation and production of marine resources, such as petroleum. This dual professional training offers undergraduates a greater variety of work opportunities in their area of expertise.


Graduate Program: Ocean Engineering

The Ocean Engineering Program started its graduate-level teaching and research activities in 1967, and includes two areas of expertise: Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering, and Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering.
The field of Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering aims at the analysis, design, construction and operation of ships and offshore platforms.
This field deals with the hydrodynamic and structural behavior of offshore systems, design of ships, river and marine vessels, offshore platforms and submersibles, new materials, waterway transportation, mechanical aspects of engines and propellers, ship installations, offshore platforms and wave energy.
The field of Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering deals with topics related to the physical aspects of the marine environment, as well as with the interaction between the sea and coastal areas and human interventions in these environments.
This field studies flow dynamics and water quality in estuaries, bays and coasts, coastal and estuarine sedimentological processes, the mechanics of wave generation and propagation, maritime and port work designs and the contribution of engineering for coastal management studies.
