Skills to be acquired in this module
Professional competences
The students:
  • gain knowledge about ship handling and navigation and
  • learn to understand maritime transportation as a system of systems with systems on board for stability, propulsion and steering as for bridge resource management.
  • understand the latter as a mayor contribution to organize navigation as a hierarchical team concept of a safety critical sociotechnical system.
  • are aware of the special technical and physical challenges of navigation.
Methodological competences
The students:
  • can apply system engineering methods to describe, analyse and design maritime systems. By looking on maritime transporation the gain transferable knowledge on other cyber physical systems.
  • learned to how systems can deal with harsh environmental conditions in a resilient way.
Social competences
The students:
  • Maritime transportation is a mayor basis of a global economy. Typically, students do not have an understanding of these transportation systems nor their technical and systemic challenges. Therefore, the student knows the concepts of maritime transportation and its role in international transportation networks after finishing this module.
The students:
  • Especially their competences cover an understanding as maritime transportation as a systems of system with high requirements on reliability, dependability and safety in combination with efficiency to be competitive in a global economy.
Module contents
The module consists of a lecture and an exercise part:
Maritime Transportation in global and local supply chains, Base concepts of ship handling and navigation, maritime system dynamics, bridge resource management, eNAvigation and high automation systems.
Covering aspects of maritime transportation
