In this second level of the marine engineering knowledge course, students will continue their studies in pumps and pumping systems, water makers, air compressors, and separators. An introduction into the operation and construction of auxiliary steam turbines will be given. For medium and high speed diesels, emphasis will be placed on the construction of the engine structures, lubrication, coolant, injection, and scavenging systems. In boiler systems, students will study the mountings, construction, operation, maintenance, and defects of fire tube auxiliary boilers. The course will also include a study in hydraulics and hydraulic systems. Steering systems will be studied, and an introduction to deck machinery will be given. Finally, there will be an introduction to ship’s shafting and propellers.
