1 A New Approach in Designing Maritime Engineering Curriculum to Meet the Needs of Modern Ships By Dr. Yaqub Amani and Mrs. Catherine Kelley Strez`

2 Changes in the Maritime Industry SUNY Maritime College introduces a series of new courses and improved the content of courses that underscore these issues. New Developments in Electric Drive Systems for Ships Alternative Fuels and Propulsion Methods Heightened Environmental Awareness Reduction of Criteria Pollutants Manilla Ammendments to STCW

3 Prepare Engineers and Ship Designers for Now and Their Future Shipping Industry  Generations of ship builders rely on energy dense fuels and combustion process to design ships propulsion  Pollution from ships sounding alarm in ports worldwide What is the propulsion method of the future for a sustainable shipping industry?

4 Propulsion Systems Nuclear Power Electric Power Electronics and Controls Electric Motor Figure 2 - Engine room using nuclear power as energy for propulsion Figure 1 - Engine room using hydrogen power as energy for propulsion HydrogenHydrogen Fuel Cell Inverters and Controls Electric Motor Strez & Amani 4 IMLA - 19

5 Future Propulsion Systems Regardless method, the final propulsion system will include:  Power electronics components  Microprocessor based control system  Well designed electric motor. Maritime curricula changes introduce these topics to future generation of seafarers. Strez & Amani 5 IMLA - 19

6 Electrical Engineering Curriculum Introductory courses: → Circuit Theory (EEI) → (Networks) Signals & Systems → Computerized Systems Basic education to pursue higher degrees in any field of electrical engineering: → Analog Electronics → Digital Electronics → Electro-magnetic Fields & Waves → Communication These courses define the focus of the program: → Power electronics → Electric Drives → Marine Power Distribution Systems → Electric Machines → Renewable Energy Concepts → Control Devices → Control Theory → Design I → Design II The main objective of the program is to prepare students to meet challenges presented by a new drive systems which could be non-combustion and require knowledge in the new frontiers of power electronics, microprocessor based control systems and new designs for electric motors. 6

7 The Electrical Engineering Program Designed to satisfy maritime and power electrical industry – Electrical Engineering constituency ABET Accreditation (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology)  Intern Option Electrical Engineers No USCG license 8 semester – 2 intern periods ABET Accreditation & USCG license  Engine licensed Electrical Engineers 8 semester – 3 summer sea term periods  Deck licensed Electrical Engineers 9 semester sequence – 3 summer sea term periods Strez & Amani 7 IMLA - 19

8 Maritime License Electrical Engineers Present compliance to STCW  A sequence of fifteen professional courses taken as engineering and applied engineering electives.  Allows for greater control of the training records. New amendments to the STCW code would require a number additional of courses for all license students.  Is this avoidable? Embed the new Knowledge Understanding and Proficiency (KUPS) requirements within our existing and revised courses. Strez & Amani 8 IMLA - 19

9 Review of Program Changes with Respect to the USCG license Map curriculum changes in environmental awareness, sensors and controls to proposed Manila amendments. Similar mapping for all new STCW requirements. BAD NEWS  Expands the necessary document control for those courses beyond the current requirements. GOOD NEWS  The maintenance of the current course load may be a beneficial trade off. Strez & Amani 9 IMLA - 19

11 Design Projects The two semester design sequence in electrical engineering focuses on a variety of topics related to marine environment. Past Projects –Harvesting tidal energy –Design of mini subs and power monitoring systems –Hydrogen powered ships All these efforts are geared to bring a paradigm shift in mapping our path into a future of shipping and a clean, green industry.

15 Conclusions Redesign of the electrical engineering program curriculum at SUNY Maritime College: –To expand propulsion education beyond the traditional fossil fuel plant and a deeper understanding of sensors and electronics. –To shift the focus of our design sequence to include concepts for sustainable maritime industry. –To map knowledge requirements and assessments to satisfy the changes in international STCW standards. All these efforts are geared to mapping Maritime College’s path into a future of modern shipping and a clean, green maritime industry. 15
