The global shipping industry never stands still, and this is also true for technology. New technological demands with regards to ship safety, navigation, risk management and energy efficiency mean new requirements for increasingly skilled and technically-knowledgeable professionals to understand and carry out these demands. This course develops a detailed understanding of ship technology and the role it plays in shipping.
Written by industry leading practitioners and delivered by online distance learning, the Certificate in Ship Technology will help you step up professionally in seven carefully-constructed study modules.
The first module provides a key introduction to some basic machinery used onboard vessels, as well as its management to ensure optimal performance. It will explore concepts such as system design and performance analysis which are vital to the management of technology.
This module describes the essential requirements of safety and risk management in the context of ship technology. It states the requirements of SOLAS and the issues pertaining to this, as well as risk management concepts such as reliability engineering and risk of failure.
The third module describes and explains the different types of technology used not only onboard different types of ship, namely containerships, bulk carriers, oil tankers and offshore vessels, but also that used in their construction. This module also explores the rationale behind these differences.
This module describes and explains how ship technology can improve a ship's energy efficiency by way of greener technology, and better optimisation of existing technology.
This module explores the issues relating to maintenance and operations with regard to ship technology. It looks at quality management, project management and engineering management and how they ensure ship technology is well-maintained in all points of its lifecycle.
The penultimate module describes in detail the planning, logistics and management of spares management, maritime installations, and sub-sea systems.
The final module looks to the future of ship technology, and describes the concept of innovation management in ship technology. How is innovation introduced and what is a ship's technological innovation strategy?

An essential introduction to the technological processes onboard a ship
This course is ideal for shore and shipboard staff looking to understand the science and technology onboard the vessel and how it relates to their day-to-day roles. In particular, it is useful for crew members, ship superintendents, ship management and purchasing staff.
In addition, junior or new entrants to the shipping business who need to build their knowledge of shipboard technology will find the course extremely beneficial as they look to build their future career, as will anyone looking to progress into marine engineering or marine maintenance roles, as this course gives a real underpinning to these job roles.
Finally, the course is of great benefit to others more generally related to the field, such as legal professionals, insurers, marine consultants and seafarers.
Mr. Alakkawi is an experienced marine engineer with 16 years in the industry. He has sailed for 12 years, moving up the rank from cadet to chief engineer on various ships.
Following his time at sea, Ayman worked ashore, then moved to the University of Trinidad and Tobago as senior maritime engineering lecturer. Most recently, he has been working in the field of maritime education at State University New York as lecturer for U.S.C.G approved courses for professional mariners.
We welcome companies placing individual students or groups on any of our publicly advertised distance learning courses, or for larger corporate groups we will deliver to your individual requirements, including instructor lead training, blended delivery solutions, customised assessments, flexible time-scales and dedicated support for learning and development managers.
Very useful as an introduction to ship engineering technology.
