The main objective of this program is to educate skilled engineers for industry and research institutions. The subject is multi-disciplinary with strong emphasis on systems engineering. A naval architect from the program in Maritime Engineering has knowledge about the complete processes of design, implementation and operation of marine vessels which can be very large and complex systems, as well as deep understanding in subjects such as structural and fluid mechanics and related applications. The program further gives students experience from a second university during the second year studies where specialization is done in any of the study tracks Ocean Structures (NTNU), Passenger Ships (Aalto), Ship Design (Chalmers), Ship Operations (DTU), Small Craft (KTH). The education is hence relevant for students devoted to work in the maritime sector as well as for careers in other fields of engineering.
