  • Be able to apply a dynamic analysis process on offshore energy systems
  • Be able to apply models for and conduct analysis of mechanical, electrical, electromechanical, fluid, thermal and multidisciplinary systems, such as wind turbine transmission systems, or oil and gas systems
  • Have gained experience in laboratory work with a dynamic system control
  • Be able to analyse obtained results from simulations and laboratory work
  • Be able to do a cost-benefit analysis on the dynamic multidisciplinary system


  • Have acquired the ability to translate academic knowledge and skills within dynamic multidisciplinary systems into a practical problem in offshore energy systems, and be able to process such a problem
  • Have acquired the ability to participate in professional and interdisciplinary cooperation within the multidisciplinary systems
  • Have acquired the ability to assess basic economic conditions in the development and commissioning of systems or appliances

Type of instruction

Problem-based and project-oriented work in project groups. Some lectures are given in business economy to support the objectives in this area. Teaching is in English and/or Danish depending on the participation of international students, or if the supervisor is of foreign origin.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 15 ECTS project work, the work load is expected to be 450 hours for the student.
