Course content

This course give an introduction to digitalization technologies applied in industry, from automobile and aviation to maritime operation. We will focus on introducing date driven methods that are used for creating and simplifying models for prediction/classification. Some case studies related to model ship motion will also be presented, so that the students have a complete experience for analysis and modeling of raw data.

  • Digitalization introduction (State of the art)
  • Fundamentals of Digital Twins: Physical Entities, Virtual Models and Services (simulation, verification, monitoring, diagnosis, prognostics, and health management)
  • Data analytical overview, including data purification, down sampling and denoising
  • Local & global sensitivity analysis approaches, such as Garson, EFAST and Sobol method
  • Maritime Case studies


Admission to a programme of study is required:

  • Naval Architecture (850MD)
  • Naval Architecture (850ME)
  • Product and System Design (840MD)
  • Product and System Design (845ME)
