  • topic for dissertation

    I have 2 weeks to choose a topic for my degree dissertation. I am studying Nautical Engineering (I will be a ship officer). If I can't come up with a good idea it's ok, some teacher will help me out. But I prefer if I can find before something I like. Any idea?

    Have you identified any areas of weakness on your last ship? On my last vessel, I noticed almost no one was using checklists. That's what my dissertaion is about. Lots of people like doing communications and hours of rest, but it is essentially up to you.

      What are you interested in? Environmental things, supertechnonolgy, fuel economy, nuclear power..... ?? Your dissertation is going to be something you spend a lot of time on, so make sure it's something you're really interested in!

        Energy Efficiency is the name of the game these days, why not look at areas where fuel can be saved? Develop a new set of measuring tools (something I've been trying to do in my spare time) or draw up a plan for increasing the energy efficiency of your vessels using existing technology.

        If that is what you want to go with, then let me know. I do this sort of stuff as part of my job so I have a lot of information and other stuff, and i'm willing to forward it to you provided you send us a copy (electronically) of the completed dissertation....
        I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....
