Abstract

Over the past five years the Internet of Things (IoT) technology has grown rapidly, finding applications in several sectors. Large shipping industries are already investing in IoT techniques to optimize transparency, safety and reduce costs. However, there is a global shortage of trained engineers and technicians to handle this new technology safely. The SMARTSEA project, financed by the European Commission, aims to develop an interactive MSc course on Maritime and Surveyor IoT systems which help complete the market void in technical and maintenance specialists generated by the prompt expansion of the Smart Maritime & Surveying industry. The course duration is eight months, plus three mobility periods; two of them to participate in large-scale laboratories, and a 1-month industrial placement.
