Topic outline

  • Welcome to the Marine and Ship Systems Engineering Course!


    Course overview: 


    The modern maritime industry has to confront a number of challenges. These include stricter maritime regulations, higher competitivity among shipping companies and significant fuel price volatility. On the other hand, alternative fuels and emerging technologies are providing countless opportunities for ship designers to succeed in offering sustainable and innovative solutions. Research & Development personnel within industry and research centres in academia actively engage in forming a new network to create innovative objectives and to optimize current situations. The Marine and Ship Systems Engineering (MSSE) course aims at bringing fresh ideas from students into the maritime industry. This will be followed by an insightful experience-based rethinking of proposed ideas posed by specialists from academia and industries brightening the presented theoretical concepts for students. More information can be provided in the course booklet attached below.

    Attention:
    The lecture is implemented only on-site, at Mechanical Engineering (K1) Building, Room 215, Otakaari 4, Espoo, 02150
