The program focuses on the design of ship equipment and maritime systems. You will be challenged in developing new solutions that are safe, environmentally friendly and efficient. You will learn about advanced systems that include robots, cranes and winches used in deck solutions which address the complex interactions between operators.
You will also concentrate on the maritime operations that the ship is performing, and you will be simulating these operations in order to design the required maritime systems in the most efficient way.
Part of the program combines theory and practice by students spending time with the nearby maritime companies. The maritime cluster around Ålesund is among the most complete in the World, and Norwegian maritime enterprises together form an internationally competitive, expertise-based industry that comprises an unrivalled degree of professionalism. You will acquire skills and attitudes to act efficiently within the design of maritime products and systems in the offshore industry throughout the world.
As a graduate of our programme you can look forward to working with challenges connected to developing automated and remotely controlled deck solutions as well as new machinery and propulsion systems to meet both the strict economic requirements and the environmental goals aiming for zero emission.
