The learning outcomes of the SEAS 4.0 Master Programme are defined with respect to the emerging necessity to enlarge and improve the knowledge of the Naval Architecture with the elements of Ship management, Infologistics and Sustainability concepts in the frame of Industry 4.0 in an environment of extraordinary interest for Industrial Partners and future career prospects.

The learning outcomes are defined on four levels:

  • general learning outcomes;
  • specific skills and
  • general and transferable skills
  • soft skills


General learning outcomes SEAS 4.0 graduates will be able to:

  • demonstrate knowledge, understanding and competences in applying sustainability precepts in ship life cycle; using model and simulation tools related with ship structures, motions and fluid dynamics; applying information systems and data management tools during ship design, construction and operation; design and operation of robots and marine autonomous vehicles; dealing with challenges regarding maritime Polar routes; fulfilling safety, economic and sustainability requirements in ship operation and management.
  • use knowledge, skills, ideas, theory, and modern engineering concepts to create new or significantly improved real engineering applications;
  • think creatively and explore new ideas outside of current boundaries of the field;
  • identify, formulate, solve engineering problems within realistic constraints; and
  • appreciate the impact of sustainable development goals in maritime transport

Specific skills: SEAS 4.0 graduates will be able to:

  • critically analyse, synthesise, interpret and summarise complex scientific processes;
  • recognise and use theories, paradigms, concepts and principles, to design and undertake primary R&D within the context of multidisciplinary Design Process.

In addition to these, those specific skills obtained in each course, are described in the corresponding syllabus.

General and transferable skills: SEAS 4.0 graduates will be able to

  • develop design skills, extendable in automotive and aerospace industry;
  • apply research skills in independent design, execution, and presentation of original research;
  • apply knowledge to address familiar and unfamiliar problems.

Soft skills: SEAS 4.0 graduates will be able to:

  • display adequate intercultural competence by successfully navigating multicultural learning environments;
  • express an attitude of intellectual inquisitiveness and open-mindedness,
  • implement basic management principles suitable for a multicultural working environment;  communicate effectively with stakeholders and industrial partners
  • integrate strategies for self-managed and life-long learning.
