Content and structure of the minor
Cruise & Ferry Experience (CFE) minor provides a holistic approach on creating the passenger ship concept. In modern passenger ships, the design combines the latest business models with the hi-tech solutions and unique architecture. Therefore, the CFE minor brings different disciplines together already in university education and it is open for all Aalto students.
The cross-disciplinary CFE minor gives students the overview of the complex systems of passenger ships, cruising experiences, key issues of the unique business, and world famous Finnish shipbuilding. Lectures are given by a variety of industry experts from different fields. Learnt issues are deepened and reflected in ship project work, where student groups create concepts for future passenger ships. In multidisciplinary group working, students learn skills for communication and collaboration between different disciplines. That is beneficial for today’s work life.
The CFE minor contains two obligatory courses Passenger Ship and Principles of Naval Architecture from the School of Engineering and the optional courses from other fields in total amount of 20 ECTs or more. The CFE minor students are encouraged to extend their knowledge from the major and choose courses from the other fields of interest. For example, an ENG student can choose courses from ARTS to learn about design or an ARTS student can extend the knowledge with courses from marketing (BIZ). Passenger Ships course is done in collaboration with Product Architecture Design (MUO-E3001) course (ARTS) .
Recommended courses are listed below, but a student can also propose other courses tobe included in the CFE minor.
