Delivered by digital learning over 14 weeks part time



The global shipping industry never stands still, and this is also true for technology. New technological demands with regards to ship safety, navigation, risk management and energy efficiency mean new requirements for increasingly skilled and technically-knowledgeable professionals to understand and carry out these demands. This course develops a detailed understanding of ship technology and the role it plays in shipping.

From different types of technology used in ships (containerships, bulk carriers, etc) and their construction to green ship technology and efficiency, this 14-week programme also looks into the issues related to maintenance and operations and planning, logistics and management - a complete guide to the technology underpinning a ship's operation, handling and management.

Ideal for:

  • shore and shipboard staff looking to understand the science and technology onboard the vessel and how it relates to their day-to-day roles. In particular, for crew members, ship superintendents, ship management and purchasing staff.
  • Junior or new entrants to the shipping business who need to build their knowledge of shipboard technology
  • Maritime professionals more generally related to the field, such as legal professionals, insurers, marine consultants and seafarers.
