Unit Code: FIS717

Unit Title: Computer-Aided Fishing Gear Design

This Unit is designed to build students interest and enthusiasm in fisheries engineering with computer-aided designs and expertise. Students who have previously completed apprenticeship training at a satisfactory level in the fisheries engineering and professionals and, or, related field, will find this Unit complementary, with advanced topics. The Unit develops students’ required capacities (literacy and skills) in handling computer-aided design programs for designing fishing gears. Ultimately, students will be able to improve their fishing gear designs skills and work as supervisors in fishing companies. In this Unit, students are provided with the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills required to deal with fishing gear-related disputes by providing them with conflict resolution methods used in international fisheries conflict case studies and teach them how to develop a local contextual approach to fishing gear design conflict resolutions.
