Alumni Comments

Andrii Pischchanskyi - UNKOWN

"Respected Professors & Entire EMSHIP Team,
Good day to you.

As you would know, we the students of the 3rd cohort have completed our semester in Liege and are saying goodbye to Belgium for the time being.

I would like to take this opportunity to convey my gratitude to you for all your efforts, guidance and support throughout this semester. We have learnt a lot this semester and hopefully will continue to do so in the months and years ahead.

It has indeed been a memorable 5 months in Liege, memories of which will remain with all of us for a long time. We had the opportunity to meet a lot of new people and make new friends, and this I believe is because of the international nature of this course.

Once again thanking you and seeking your blessings for the next semester,

Best Regards,

Jose Babu Maliakel"

I would like to thank you for the opportunity of studying EMShip, it has been a great experience not just academically but personally. Especially, I have enjoyed the way of learning, focusing on the physical principles rather than following rules in an automatic way.

The organisation has been really smooth and receiving always help from Ms. Christine Reynders.

EMShip Awards

Emship : TraVision award 2018

Receiving award certificate from Dr. Roberta Weisbrod, Executive Director of Worldwide Ferry Safety Association

1st award of the "Ferry design competition of Worldwide Ferry Safety Association", USA

New York: April 20, 2017- The Worldwide Ferry Safety Association (WFSA) ( ) will be presenting awards to the winners of its Ferry Design Competition at its upcoming Ferry Safety & Technology Conference.

Nine student teams from around the world submitted their ideas for design of a safe affordable ferry for the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. They designed a 200 passenger ferry that could become a new addition to 59-vessel fleet of the Chao Phraya River Express Boat Company, which currently has 38 landings along its 30 km route. The Chao Phraya River Express Boat company has maximized the value of its landings to passengers by creating intermodal links and adding shopping and recreational opportunities. The ferries are also a tourist attraction as they ply the storied river past magnificent gilded temples...


DNV GL Award for EMShip Graduates, 8 June 2016

DNV GL Award for EMShip Graduates, 8 June 2016

DNV GL has honoured an EMSHIP Graduate for his scientific research with the DNV GL Award for Young Professionals. Presented by DNV GL – Maritime CEO Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen at the Posidonia trade fair, the award is designed to find innovative ideas for increasing safety, efficiency and sustainability in shipping. As well as seeking out the best new research, the award aims to support young professionals in the maritime field. Overall, 24 people took part in the competition.

The prize in the category “Safer” went to Aleksei Alekseev, EMSHIP Graduate, Erasmus Mundus Masters programme in Advanced Ship Design, which is jointly conducted by the universities of LIege, Nantes and Rostock. Alekseev won the award for his master thesis “Numerical Simulation of Ice Ridge Breaking”, which created a tool capable of simulating the behaviour of vessels operating in ridge ice. The tool could also be expanded to model ships in various other fragmented ice formations. Alekseev employs the discrete element method technique, where a multitude of individual, unconnected ice blocks can be simulated along with the water to derive pile-ups, forces on the vessel and the required thrust. Simulation tools such as the one developed by Alekseev enable technical experts to predict the performance of ships and offshore structures in ice. Such forecasts can play a valuable role in enhancing the safety of arctic operations.
