Overview

Main topics to be dealt with are all issues with a decisive impact in shipping. The technology system ship is focused, giving emphasis to an overview of state-of-the-art technologies, but also looking what the future will bring.

The module is consists of 12 units which are reflecting the big challenges our society in general but more precisely shipping is facing Our profession like plenty others are in a phase of change and technology is here to offer solutions to those who possess the knowledge and can apply it clever.

Safety, environmental protection, and digitalization are the drivers of our society and economy and have also found their way into the shipping industry. A traditional sector due to its nature, must rethink and adapt quickly to this new world and the best way to achieve this goal, is through education.

Finally, the corona virus outbreak had tremendous consequences on shipping operations and education. Companies and ships were forced to apply virtual reality where possible, crew changes were practically stopped, and transportation demand decreased rapidly. As to education the theoretical part continued somehow through internet sessions, the practical part however which is vital for our profession had to face.

Meet the Instructor

George Kapetanis was born 4.5.1956 in Athens, Greece.
He attended the German School of Athens and 1976 began studying at the Technical University of Hannover, Department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. In 1983 he got his diploma in Marine and Mechanical Engineering from the above University with a specialization in Marine Diesel Engines. He has further pursued post graduate studies in the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in the School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (NA&ME
He has worked for almost 40 years in different areas of Marine Engineering including shipyards, shipping companies but also academic institutions. He is currently continuing his research activities for the National Technical University of Athens Department of Maritime Transport, being involved in research activities mainly in the field of Marine Emissions, Environmental and Safety.
