Teaching

I am responsible for a study specialization on marine safety and asset management (former marine operation and maintenance engineering/operation technology) in the 5-year master program in Marine Technology.  The specialization covers important activities needed to ensure a well-functioning, safe and environmental friendly system. The focus is on marine systems, such as ships, offshore installations, marine renewable energy production systems, fisheries and aquaculture.
