After finishing my studies in naval architecture in Kiel I started my professional career at WARNOW DESIGN GMBH and

P&S PROJECT GMBH as designer for ship structure detaildesign, project engineer for initial design & field engineer at Aker MTW Shipyard in Rostock.

 2005 I switched to the worldwide operating ship design office SDC in Hamburg.

From 2005 to 2015 I worked as projectengineer and coordinator for newbuilding and conversions for all categories of ships. On the field of structural design I was responsible for all calculations relating to the structural and mechanical aspects of ship design, construction, and repair. Apart from this I specialized experience of ship equipment of merchant and research vessels.

In 2017, I founded INGENIEURBUERO FUER SCHIFFBAU CARSTEN BECKER, my own engineering office with focus on consulting and design for vessel owners, design offices, shipyards and authorities. T

As a freelance naval architect I work from my office in Glinde, Schleswig-Holstein. However, some jobs requires project related work with my client team on site. In such cases  I will work in the clients company.

Looking  forward to a successful and inspiring collaboration.
