Nordic Master’s Programmes

MP20 Nordic Master in Maritime Engineering (NMME)

The Nordic Master in Maritime Engineering is based on the expertise of the participating universities within naval architecture, offshore engineering and maritime engineering. The programme targets international students wishing to profit from the Nordic Five Tech universities' long standing tradition and competence in the field and Nordic students wishing to specialize in a specific area of expertise offered within the alliance.

The education is based on first principles within design, construction and operation of ship and offshore structures, including hydrostatics and stability, hydrodynamics, wave and wind loads and structural analyses. The teaching comprises lectures, assignments, workshops and project work. Theory is supported by experimental work and computer simulations are used intensively.

Aalto University offers for the Nordic Master in Maritime Engineering the study track Passenger ships. This study track gives a comprehensive overview of the different aspects related to the design, analysis and optimization of passenger ships. The studies cover both the basic knowledge as well as application of risk-assessment methods in ship design. The conflicting interests of various stakeholders will be addressed during the studies, and the student is forced to create a solution that satisfies the stakeholder's preferences.

The aim of the studies is to work on the same project ship throughout the specialization semester and work on different parts of this ship during different courses. The courses taken will be chosen so that they support the project work. This way obtained knowledge and know-how will be at the same time deep and synthesized. In addition the student is forced to plan the time spent on different parts giving the student capability to work on challenging projects with limited resources.

After the graduation the student could be located at the shipyard design department, at design offices, classification society, etc.

Master’s Programme in Innovative and Sustainable Energy Engineering

The purpose of the Nordic Master Programme in "Innovative and Sustainable Energy Engineering" is to provide state-of-the-art education in the fields of conventional and renewable energy sources like conventional and new power generation, solar energy, biomass energy, wind power, geothermal power and energy utilization in the built environment by means of economically and environmentally sustainable systems and technologies.

The term "sustainable energy engineering" comprises a wide array of practices, policies and technologies (conventional and renewable/alternative) aimed at providing energy at the least financial, environmental and social cost. A strong emphasis is placed on dealing with energy engineering tasks with due consideration of technical, environmental and socio-economic issues.

Another strong emphasize is put on the Innovative and Entrepreneurial aspects of the energy society, especially related to how existing and new efficiency improvement innovations can be brought to the market in different countries. The innovative aspects inside the programme are both related to the advanced renewable concept in the Nordic countries as well as regards to new businesses in the energy sector.

The programme will run to some extent with internet based audiovisual educational material allowing students at other campuses to follow lectures.

K336-3 Advanced Module in Innovative and Sustainable Energy Engineering "Bioenergy in Transport"

Lecturer in charge: Prof Martti Larmi

The Advanced Module in Innovative and Sustainable Energy Engineering "Bioenergy in Transport" introduces the fundamentals of the internal combustion engine technologies, modern biofuels and technologies. The focus of the module is on future environmental biofuel production and use with innovative modern solutions with low emissions.

Learning objectives: after going through the module, the student should be able to

  • name, describe and compare production, use and emissions of fuels, especially modern transport biofuels in different engines.
  • describe, evaluate and calculate internal combusion engine process emissions, combustion and performance parameters.
  • name and describe the most modern emission reduction technologies of internal combustion engines.
  • compare different energy systems and solutions in transport and communities.
