Marine technology


Aalto University School of Engineering offers studies in marine technology. The marine technology minor offers students good overall knowledge of the engineering aspects related to marine environment.

The main content 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 built around expertise of each student by utilisation 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
  • learns the methods for assessment of this phenomena and knows in which fields of science these are developed further and field experts exist
  • can also describe the position and relation of own expertise in the framework of engineering for maritime environment
  • understands the foundations and limitations on various engineering approaches and are able to select and apply them to different problems.

Obligatory courses: Principles of Naval Architecture (MEC-E1004) and Ship Systems (MEC-E2005). Student chooses altogether five courses.

NB! The students must attach their transcript of records and motivational letter to their application.
