It was an exciting and enlightening experience to study in the Naval Architecture and Ocean engineering department at IIT Madras. The course was unique as it is a niche field and provided a cross disciplinary knowledge. With many eminent professors who provided valuable lessons on and off classrooms there was ample guidance for the students. The department computational facility allowed us to not only explore various software but also interact with research scholars that aided our learning. It was exciting to work on the wide array of labs present from the towing tank to the large wave flume. Laboratory classes were fun and enjoyable due to these unique facilities.
