The Master programme SEAS 4.0 is designed as a Multidisciplinary master, embracing Sustainable Design with Industry 4.0 elements through the student centered education. By its definition “Student-centered instruction” focuses on skills and practices that enable lifelong learning and independent problem-solving.
On this respect, the program has been built around a series of content blocks which represent the basic topics which have to be developed during the SEAS 4.0 master degree in order to provide the full spectrum of knowledge needed to fulfil the SEAS 4.0 academic objectives. These content blocks are the following:
- Energy Efficiency and Sustainability (EES). Block which includes the courses directly related to increasing the sustainability and efficiency of ships, from design stage to life cycle analysis.
- Simulation and modelling (SIM). One of the main needs of 4.0 industry is to obtain tools to simulate the processes that are under analysis, so that optimization and control strategies could be adopted to increase the efficiency of such processes. In the case of SEAS 4.0 proposal, simulation and modelling mainly covers structures, hydrodynamics and ship motions in the field of ship design and shipbuilding processes in the field of ship construction.
- Information systems and data management (IDM). This block groups all courses related with data collection and analysis and the development of information systems, basic while implementing 4.0 industry paradigm.
- Robotics & Autonomous Systems (RAS). Finally, this block includes courses which cover the field of marine robotics and autonomous vehicles, which are always associated not only to sustainability, but also to 4.0 industry concepts.
- Polar routes challenges in structure and technology (PR). This group of courses is focused on the technological needs which face ships and floating structures operating in polar areas, not only but specially focused on the structural demands of such systems.
- Ship operation, management and infologistics (SO). In this group of courses the aspects related to ship operation and management are included, considering safety, economical and operational aspects, including also the necessary regulatory framework.
