Degree Project

The bachelor’s thesis comprises 15 ECTS. It often acts as a link between studies and working life and provides students with an opportunity to apply theoretical models to practical problems. The thesis becomes a part of the student’s competence profile. It can consist of internal and/or external commissions, joint projects, or other projects related to working life.

These can be, for example:

  • research (e.g. investigation, survey, analysis and/or evaluation)
  • a development work (e.g. development of working methods or activities)
  • product or service development (e.g. a prototype or model)
  • a plan or product (e.g. an event, design of a material such as a guide/manual or manual)
  • a portfolio

Continuing Education Opportunities

After completing the Bachelor’s Degree it is possible to continue to Master's level studies at Universities or Universities of Applied Sciences.

Career Opportunities

Graduates from the degree programme in Maritime Technology are professional and versatile Chief Engineers, qualified for Finnish, European, and International careers. The first self-evident career at sea can be as officers on board any type of vessel. Shore-based careers within the maritime industry are underpinned by a sufficient career at sea. The maritime industry offers land-based positions within different authorities, shipping companies, brokers, insurance companies, yards, logistics, and so on.

Internationalisation

Students can participate in international activity by:

  • studying as an exchange student for a semester or an academic year at one of our partner schools around the world
  • doing an internship abroad
  • participating in intensive courses and projects with international students

We aim at strengthening our international profile in the EU primarily in the Nordic and Baltic Sea region. Novia UAS is actively involved in various programs and building a network of strategic partner institutions and other stakeholders in Europe.

Collaboration With Other Actors

The simulation resources of Aboa Mare (Novia) consist of ten simulator bridges, engine room simulators, VTS (Vessel Traffic System) simulator, DP (Dynamic Positioning) –simulator and radio simulator. Aboa Mare can offer training on CONSILIUM, FURUNO, SAM Electronics, SPERRY and TRANSAS bridges in its simulator.

With Aboa Mare's own developed simulator interface, Aboa Mare can generate technical faults to the real navigational instruments on the bridges. Aboa Mare's staff consists of 40 simulator instructors with a wide range of experience in shipping.

Major shipping companies (for example Viking Line, Tallink Silja and Neste Oil) are training their officers in Aboa Mares simulators. Aboa Mare also have extensive co-operation with companies in research and other projects, for example ABB, Wärtsilä, Elomatic and Eniram.

Aboa Mare have a long tradition of pilotage training and examination, simulator training in critical situations and today a big effort is put into ice navigation and energy-efficient ship operations.

Aboa Mare is authorized by the Finnish Maritime Administration to deliver STCW maritime education and to arrange pilot exemption exams for the Finnish fairways. We are also audited by IALA to arrange VTS operator training according to the IALA standard and by Nautical Institute to arrange DP training. The quality of our training is guaranteed by DNV ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards.
