General description O obxectivo desta materia é complementar os coñecementos do alumnado que procede dos Grados de Arquitectura Naval ou que non tiveran cursado asignaturas relacionadas cos sistemas de propulsión de buques.

Nesta materia abordarase o estudo dos sistemas de propulsión do buque no seu conxunto, incluíndo tanto os conceptos básicos para o proxecto dos mesmos, as normas e os procedementos para a súa instalación e o seu mantemento e os procesos de construción e instalación dos equipos propulsores, abordando os cinco tipos principais de plantas de propulsión actuais: mediante motores diesel, turbinas de gas, turbinas de vapor, propulsión eléctrica e sistemas combinados.

Methodologies
Methodologies Description
Supervised projects To develop the design of the engine room of a given vessel, that will be defined at the beggining of the course. On it, some of the knowledge acquired along the course will have to be applied.

At the beggining of the course, and depending on the number of students, it will be decided if the project has to be done individually or in groups of students.
Supervised projects To develop a project work about a given topic within the contents of the course, that will be defined at the beggining of it. This project will be orally presented.

At the beggining of the course, and depending on the number of students, it will be decided if the project has to be done individually or in groups of students.
Oral presentation Oral presentation of the project work about a topic of the course, in front of the professor and the rest of the students. Moreover, the student will also evaluate the oral presentations of the rest of the groups
Objective test Theoretical/practical written examination about the different contents of the course.
Problem solving Resolución de problemas prácticos de cada un dos temas nos que se divide a asignatura, tanto polo profesor como polos propios alumnos, en sesións presenciais.
Guest lecture / keynote speech Lecture sessions where the contents of the course will be explained and described by the professor.

Assessment comments

Os requisitos que aqueles alumnos con dispensa de asistencia a clase
terán que cumprir, tanto en primeira como en segunda oportunidade, serán
os mesmos requisitos que aqueles sen esta dispensa, coas seguintes
excepcións:



- Non será necesaria a realización da presentación oral do traballo
tutelado dun tema específico da asignatura. Polo tanto, neste caso, a puntuación asignada a este apartado (traballo tutelado dun tema específico) será dun 10 % do total da
cualificación.



- A puntuación asignada á asistencia aos apartados de "Solución de
problemas" e "Sesións maxistrais", asignarase á "Proba obxectiva". Así,
nestes casos, a cualificación da proba obxectiva será dun 70 %.



Esta asignatura acepta a dispensa académica de aquelos alumnos matriculados a tempo parcial.

Os alumnos con dispensa académica poden seguir a asignatura sen asistir a clase e contan co apoyo do profesor en tutorías cando o necesiten. Serán evaluados exclusivamente por a nota obtida no examen tanto na primeira como na segunda oportunidade
