Science and Technology Challenges and Potential Game-changing Opportunities
Author(s)Triantafyllou, Michael S.
The future of naval engineering in the 21st century will be shaped by novel and emerging technologies that will not only provide unprecedented capabilities but also require radical rethinking of naval ship and vehicle design. This change is already in the works as engineering schools in major universities are hiring young faculty trained in new fields and developing novel technologies. This investment is expected to bring radical changes to mature fields, such as naval architecture and marine engineering; hence, to fully reap the benefits the ground must be prepared now.
