Goals and competencies

Familiarization with information systems on board in the service of navigation, propulsion, safety, communications, handling of cargo, spare parts and information system in the function of ship administration. Consideration of the system for the remote control of the condition of the ship during navigation and during cargo operations. Special emphasis on systems on modern ships with a dynamic positioning system and on platforms and other types of offshore maritime economy. Marine pollution detection systems. Systems to support the perception and management of an anti - piracy or terrorist incident at sea.
