– Learning outcome


Learning outcome

A candidate who has completed his or her qualification should have the following learning outcomes defined in terms of knowledge, skills and general competence:


The candidate should be able to demonstrate

  • ability to apply relevant knowledge in mathematics, physics, statistics, natural science and ICT for understanding of engineering disciplines, relevant systems and methodology used for innovation, research and development within the marine disiplines.
  • advanced knowledge within the marine technology basic and discipline fields, including a deep understanding of methods and tools used for design, development, analysis and modelling and simulation applied within marine systems design, marine structures, systems and operation.
  • specialized knowledge within at least one of the specializations within the study program.In selected areas this knowledge should be developed to a level close to state of the art within the research or close to relevant design or developments tasks within the area. This knowledge is aimed to give a solid foundation for innovative contributions and development of new knowledge within the marine technology disciplines.
  • knowledge about the history and development of technology, related ethical questions, the role and responsibilities of the engineer in the society and consequences of development and use of technology in general but especially within the marine technology disciplines.
  • knowledge within project work, motivation, organization and management.

General competencies

The candidate should be able to demonstrate

  • good communication skills related to his/her own work, in different formats and media, for both specialists and generalists, including to contribute to scientific publications within the discipline.
  • a mature insight for reflections on the environmental, social, economic consequences of engineering practices, products, process and systems within the marine technology disciplines
  • ability to think and act innovatively, critical, constructive and respectful, and to understand how innovation and entrepreneurship contributes to a more sustainable development of the society.
  • an international perspective on his/her discipline and understand the international labor marked.


The candidate should be able to:

  • in group or by himself identify, define, model, develop and analyze theoretical, technical, inter-disciplinary and practical problems within the marine technology and supporting disciplines and to make well-founded selections of methods and solution strategy for the present problem.
  • assess, use and further develop relevant and advanced ICT-tools related to the present problem.
  • design, develop and analyze systems, components and structures using the specialized knowledge having acquired.
  • plan and carry out technology projects and assignments in teams or by himself.
  • carry out a restricted research or development project with guidance, in team or by himself, in accordance with established for research ethics.
