The Ship Design Laboratory (SDL) was established in 1991 and is a unit of the School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens. The Laboratory is located in the Zografou Campus.

The mission of the Ship Design Laboratory is to advance the knowledge and research on ship design, performance and operation.

The research and projects performed by the Lab's members are in the fields of ship design, stability, hydrodynamics, structures and optimization.

The Ship Design Laboratory participates in a large variety of funded national and international (EU funded) research projects and provides support to the marine industry.

The members of the Laboratory disseminate the results of their work through publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals, books and international conference proceedings.
