ASME MasterClass Series is a new learning concept recently launched by ASME Training & Development.
Premium learning programs comprised of advanced topics aimed at experienced engineers and technical professionals, each
MasterClass emphasizes learning through discussion of real world case studies and practical applications. Recognized industry
experts lead in-depth sessions that address current issues and best practices to inspire interactive discussion and group knowledge
Special Offer for MasterClass Registrants
Each MasterClass is one to two days in duration, and is typically scheduled with other MasterClasses in related topic areas for the
convenience of our participants.
A special 15% discount is available for registrants of at least two MasterClasses conducted during the same series, or 20% for
registrants of three or more MasterClasses held during the same series.

CONSORTIUM AIMS FOR BETTER SHIPS
Four organizations have agreed to collaborate to develop new hull designs
for large ships. The goal is to design vessels that show improved
hydrodynamics for better fuel
A memorandum of understanding was signed in January
by Sembcorp Marine Ltd. based
in Singapore, the University of
Glasgow in Scotland, the University of Glasgow Singapore, and
Singapore’s Agency for Science,
Technology, and Research. The
three-year agreement is intended to
enable the research organizations
to combine their scientific expertise
with Sembcorp Marine’s experience in
industrial maritime applications.
In addition to the goal of upgraded
hydrodynamics, the consortium will
look to reduce ship exhaust emissions
and discharges by improving scrubber
and ballast treatment systems.
At present, oceangoing transport
carries about 90 percent of all
international trade and accounts
for 3 percent of global green-
house gas emissions. The Inter-
national Maritime Organization
has issued stricter standards on
ship-related air pollutants and
marine environmental issues
that are expected to go into ef-
fect this year.
As part of this collaboration,
Sembcorp Marine and A*STAR
will work to improve gas abatement technology through use of
an advanced scrubber design.
The scrubber is intended to reduce
ship-borne emissions of SOx, NOx, particulate matter, and greenhouse gases,
in particular CO2, from fossil fuel-burn-ing engines. ME
