University of Melbourne: DUKC at Port Access and Navigation

Case study examples of OMC International’s DUKC® technology are being taught for the first time at the University of Melbourne, OMC said in its latest release. 

University of Melbourne’s Ocean Engineering Professor, Alexander Babanin, said that DUKC® content is being taught as part of an intensive week-long postgraduate port engineering unit developed with the support of Ports Australia and input from the maritime industry.

This ‘Port Access and Navigation’ unit, which starts today and runs until September 29, is being taught by Melbourne academics and industry experts including OMC. It is an elective in the Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering Master program at the University of Melbourne, and it is also part of the Port and Harbor Engineering Graduate Certificate which is the only formal qualification in port engineering in Australia and New Zealand.

“Professor Babanin, the course convener and original academic developer of this unit previously taught at Swinburne University for 10 years, said that the University of Melbourne was fortunate to have partnered with OMC this year to present some DUKC® course content to the next generation of maritime engineers,” OMC said.

The ‘Port Access and Navigation’ unit, with DUKC® course content, is OMC’s second collaboration with the University of Melbourne. Earlier this year, OMC was chosen as an industry partner to undertake a special research project to develop an integrated modelling system for navigational aid in tidal inlets.
