A ship is a very complex organism. Various systems act in concert to perform the different tasks a ship may be designed to carry out.
Aalesund University College is situated in the middle of the worlds largest maritime cluster, and you will benefit from international and regional expertise.
It is a great engineering challenge to design new ship systems that could turn shipping into the most efficient, safe and environmentally friendly means of transportation in the future.
