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.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews ( holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
