OVERVIEW

This teaching unit is provided to both curricula, Deck Officer and Marine Engineering. For the Marine Engineering curriculum the unit is 9 credits (90 lecturing hours), while for the Deck Officer the unit is 6 credits (60 lecturing hours). This teaching unit covers the engineering of the ship propulsion systems, in terms of plant layout, plant performance and manning.

For the Marine Engineering curriculum, the unit provides the theoretical background and skills for the 4 Functions included in Table A-III/1 and Table A-III/2 of the STCW Convention.

For the Deck Officer curriculum, the unit provides the theoretical background and skills for the 3 Functions included in Table A-II/1 and Table A-II/2 of the STCW Convention.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course will deal with the management and the operation of the propulsion plant. Plan and schedule operations: propulsive characteristics. Operation, performance assessment.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

This teaching unit covers the engineering of the ship propulsion systems, in terms of plant layout, plant performance and manning. The aim of the lecture is to provide sound principles of ship propulsions for engineers, navigators, and ship managers.

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam consists of a written test, an oral test and a discussion of the exercises. Access to the oral exam is only after passing the written exam.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The written exam will evaluate the ability to solve a problem, the oral exam will allow verifying the learning of the theoretical aspects and the reasoning ability, and the discussion of the exercises will allow evaluating the use of the specialized vocabulary and the understanding of the limits of the applied methodologies .
The written and oral exams are worth 90% of the evaluation; the discussion of the exercises contributes 10% to the final evaluation.
