Master’s thesis proposal
During studies, students will have an opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge of programming, maritime business management and maritime environmental sustainability. The aim is to give students an understanding of maritime transport cargo flows, shipping markets and strategies of maritime companies. The program includes information technology courses on different levels as well as elective courses, from which students can choose the appropriate ones according to their educational background and professional experience.
The interdisciplinary study of maritime and information technology provides an understanding of the digitalisation in maritime sector, but also the economic and environmental challenges of the maritime sector where processes could be improved with the help of information technology. In addition, the students are given an opportunity to continue their studies on doctoral level where they could further study and develop some topics in depth.
Graduates of the programme are ready to work in a digitising maritime environment, plan sustainable and environmentally friendly strategies, can develop systems and processes based on data analysis and manage a team in a changing, international environment. Since the maritime field is international, graduates can start working all over the world on shore, at port, and other maritime sector companies. There is also the opportunity to work in the public sector as a field developer and coordinator. In addition, universities are an important labour market for continuing studies on doctoral level, including project research and teaching work.
