The course introduces you the passenger ship design and specifics of that. After the course, you understand the current trends, business developments and future markets for passenger ships. You can define radically new architectural design of a passenger ship at different levels and you can apply the user-centric design in passenger ship context. You can define a general arrangement of a passenger ship based on broad set of design requirements, specific for passenger ships and you know the passenger ship safety requirements and current regulatory requirements, how to attain them or how to go beyond them, if necessary.
The course utilizes guided problem-based distance-learning concept. The content is cross-disciplinary and is suitable for students of different backgrounds (design, economics, engineering). Lectures introduce topics which are then considered with respect to the projects. Work is performed in cross-disciplinary groups. Some topics are complemented by visiting lecturers from industry to give perspective to current trends. Progress of the project is checked on weekly basis. The final project is presented in the end of the course to experts from industry and academia. Work load is roughly:
- Online-lecture slides: 10h (2.5h/week, 4 weeks)
- Instructed workshops (on-line or class-room): 15h (3h/week, 5 weeks)
- Group work: 60h (10 hours/week, 6 weeks)
- Individual work: 40h (10 hours/week, 4 weeks)
- Gala with academia and industry: 10h December 5th 2018
The course is graded based on individual (40%) and group performance (40%) and gala presentation (20%) on December 5th2018.
The individual performance is graded per week/lecture by (max 100%):
- 25% written review of the lecture slides and their relation to own studies and project
- 25% on mind-map presentation of the lecture slides and their relation to own studies
- 50% on review of weekly articles in format of written text and position on the mind-map
Group work in individual assignments is not allowed (violation will lead to zero points in round). Check the bonus question from Assignment -section.
The group performance is graded per week by (max 100%):
- 75% integrity and robustness of the work performed including level of analyses
- 25% reporting including quality of the produced materials and reflection to theory
Any problems with group dynamics should be included to course teacher during course.
