    The course utilizes a challenge-based learning concept. Starting from concept design developed in the MEC-E1004 - Principles of Naval Architecture (PNA) course, the students outline the drawbacks and improve the ship design (preliminary design). The skills and knowledge accumulated during M.Sc. studies are utilized.

    Students demonstrate independent work, critical judgment, engineering thinking, and teamwork. The assignments are carried out in groups of 3-5 students, preferably the same as in the PNA course. The final project is presented to experts from industry and academia at the end of the course.

    The Ship Design Portfolio course includes workshops, computer classes (NAPA workshop with e-learning materials), and the Marine Technology Gala (Final Project presentation to industry representatives). The assignments include mid-term progress reports, mid-term workshops and gala presentations, and final project report at the end of the course. The existing report from the PNA course is utilized and updated.
