The University of Itajai, Santa Caterina, Brazil is to offer a Composite Boatbuilding class. 

From the first semester of 2014 the University of Itajai will offer a module on Boat Construction in Composite Materials in its graduation course of Technology in Marine Construction.

The new course will include topics such as the processing techniques in composites, mould and prototyping construction, selection of materials, mechanical testing and construction details. In each semester the students will produce a fiberglass boat as part of their final exams.

Barracuda explains the module will use as reference literature books written by Barracuda Advanced Composites Chief Engineer, Jorge Nasseh, including “Composite Boatbuilding Manual”, “Advanced Methods in Composite Construction” and “Theory and Practice of Composite Processing”.

The module’s primary goal is to educate students on the theoretical and practical aspects of marine applications of composite materials.
