Intended learning outcomes

The technical aim is to develop an advanced naval system from specification to product, constrained by a given budget. During the course the students learn

  • to work in a project environment
  • written and oral skills
  • to analyze technical problems from a systems perspective
  • to use modern engineering methods and tools
  • to treat and solve technical problems subject to multiple constraints
  • develop strategies for systematic use, and choice of available engineering methods

Course main content

The course consists mainly of project based teamwork such as planning, technical design, experimental investigations and manufacturing. In addition regular informative and decisive project meetings are held and frequent informal discussions with teachers. Opportunities to practice leading roles such as project manager, group leader and treasurer could occur. A number of relevant guest lectures in topics ranging from purely technical to project management and communication techniques are planned, normally after consultation with the course participants.
