Automation and Maritime Simulation

The Maritime Unit of Novia, and its research activities, specialise in simulation, which includes the development of simulation, virtual training methods, and practices that support learning practical skills. In research and development, we evolve new areas of application in ship simulation, which benefits both maritime safety and efficiency.
