Content and structure of the minor
The Marine Technology Minor offers students good overall knowledge of the engineering aspects related to marine environment. The main contents is to introduce design aspects related to environment, marine structures, transport and related systems and sub-systems. The studies cover design, manufacturing and operational aspects. The studies are build around expertise of each student by utilization of portfolio- and project-based teaching methods.
Upon completion of the Minor in Marine Technology, the student will comprehend the fundamental economical, technological and design phenomena related to engineering to marine environment. The student learns the methods for assessment of this phenomena and knows in which fields of science these are developed further and field experts exist. Student can also describe the position and relation of own expertice in the framework of engineering for maritime environment.
Further information is available from Professor Jani Romanoff (email@example.com).
The student should choose five courses from the following list.
Principles of Naval Architecture
Ship Structures and Construction
Marine Risks and Safety
Special Assignment in Mechanical Engineering
