Royal School of Naval Architecture

The Royal School of Naval Architecture or Royal School of Naval Architecture and Engineering was an institution founded in South Kensington in 1864 to train naval architects. It was the successor to the School of Naval Architecture in HMNB Portsmouth, which was founded by the British Admiralty in 1810 on the suggestion of James Inman (whom they named its first principal) and closed in 1832.

It later moved to the Royal Naval Hospital, Greenwich (1873) then University College London (1967). It was the precursor to the Royal Corps of Naval Constructors.
