Why electrical engineering is such an important component of vessel design

A properly working electrical system drives the equipment for power generation and distribution. It also manages the control of various computers, machines, audio/visual and communication devices.


Ironically, electrical systems are often an undervalued component in a vessel’s design. This is underscored by the fact that marine electrical engineers capable of handling the integration of these complex systems are in short supply.
