There are still places available in the Flinders University intensive topic Ships: Research, Recording and Reconstruction scheduled from 17 to 23 September 2012.
This topic provides students with the theoretical and practical training necessary for researching ships and ship construction. Students will develop an in-depth knowledge of recording, representing and interpreting ship construction. Students should expect to learn nautical terminology, the basic components of a ship and activities aboard, principles of ship construction and rigging, procedures for taking and drafting ship lines and construction plans, hull analysis, procedures for graphic representation of hulls and principles of reconstructing ships. This topic is challenging, demanding and hands-on—students are expected to participate fully in problem-solving exercises.
The course is open to non-Flinders student for the cost of tuition. Credit for the course may be applied to home universities. This is a great opportunity for staff development training for current practicing professionals. For more details and to apply to the field school please see:
