Field of studies: Electrical Engineering for Shipbuilding
at the Department of Maritime Studies, Systems Engineering and Logistics
Modern ships, especially those used in passenger, ferry and specialty shipping as well as the offshore sector, are now equipped with the latest electrical and automation technology to enable environmentally friendly operation. These are the electrical and automation components of power generation and distribution, drive systems, supply and disposal systems as well as communication and navigation. Due to the requirements for ship safety and the interaction of the electrical and automation systems with the machinery, extensive knowledge is required for both the operation and construction of the ships, which takes into account the overall ship system. This means that the electrical and automation technician needs appropriate training that covers these requirements if one wants to work in the field of shipyards and the maritime supply industries.
For graduates of university (UAS) education in electrical engineering and automation technology, this means a very long and costly training for the company in order to understand the entire ship system. For this reason, a second course in marine electrical engineering for shipbuilding (EAU) was set up in the bachelor's degree in marine electrical engineering (SET). In addition to a broad basic training in electrical and automation technology as well as information and communications technology, this also includes modules on ship systems and their operation. This is combined with extensive practical training in the plant laboratories and ship simulators.
If you want to start your professional career in shipbuilding and the maritime supplier industry, the course maritime electrical engineering/field of studies electrical engineering for shipbuilding is the right choice.
The UAS Wismar is currently the only institution in Germany that offers this course with two fields of study for ship operation and shipbuilding. The course is offered jointly by the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (location: Wismar) as well as the department of Maritime Studies, Systems Engineering and Logistics (Location: Rostock-Warnemuende). Experienced university professors, proven employees, the modern Maritime Simulation Center Warnemünde (MSCW) and a large number of well-equipped laboratories in Wismar and Warnemünde offer excellent conditions for both theoretical studies and practical training.
The cities Wismar and Rostock with their special maritime flair are an area that is unparalleled as a study location. There is an active and interesting student life at both locations.
