Aalto University, School of Engineering - Academic Partner

Marine Technology Education Package gives an in depth understanding of the maritime engineering. Teaching provides principles for construction and design, including hydrodynamics, loads, structural analyses, stability, safety of marine traffic and winter navigation. Teaching is carried out by assignments, project work, lectures, and workshops. Theory within this education package is supported by experimental work, and computer simulations are used to convey concepts.


Student can select, for instance, the following study paths:

  • Naval Architecture

  • Arctic Marine Technology

  • Ship Project Engineer

  • Structural Expert

  • Hydrodynamic Expert

Marine Technology Education is part of Aalto University´s Mechanical Engineering Master´s Programme. For further information > Marine Technology Education

Admissions to the master's programmes at Aalto University are organised once a year.

The Nordic Master in Maritime Engineering (NMME) is based on the expertise of the participating universities within naval architecture, offshore engineering and maritime engineering. Read more > NMME


> Aalto University is a multidisciplinary community where science and art meet technology and business. They are committed to identifying and solving grand societal challenges and building an innovative future. Aalto University has 6 schools with nearly 20 000 students and 4 000 employees, 386 of whom are Professors. There is a wide variety of Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees awarded at Aalto University, and tehy also offer doctoral programmes in all the fields of study.

Aalto University was founded in 2010 as Helsinki University of Technology, the Helsinki School of Economics and the University of Art and Design Helsinki were merged.



The selected study path can be modified and focused based on student interest by specialization courses from other education packages and Master programme.


For instance, the crossdisciplinary Cruise & Ferry Minor extends the engineering studies to design and business. Marine-IT Minor provides basic information of the possible IT tools that can be applied in marine sector.

Further, the Marine Technology education complements the Nordic Master Program with the passenger ship design. The other modules of Nordic Master program are: Ocean Structures (NTNU), Small Craft (KTH), Ship Design (Chalmers) and Ship Operations (DTU).

The education package provides students capability to perform design and research in marine industry. The majority of graduates work in design and research positions in shipyards, research institutes, design offices, shipping companies and regulatory institutions.
