A ship is a very complex organism. Various systems act in concert to perform the different tasks a ship may be designed to carry out. NTNU is situated in the middle of the world's largest maritime cluster, and you will benefit from international and regional expertise.
It is a great engineering challenge to design new ship systems that can turn shipping into the most efficient, safe and environmentally friendly means of transportation in the future. New ship design is typically developed in response to needs coming from new technologies, changes in the world politics, new strategies and lessons learned from previous ship development.
