In this work we propose a new subject which integrates the contents of Industry 4.0 in order to complement the training on the Master's degree in Naval and Oceanic Engineering, focused on the following topics:
- Advanced simulation of marine systems. Simulation is a technology that makes it possible for the real world to be transferred to the virtual world. This can be done by creating 3D models that will enable students to obtain experience. It is possible to develop any thing or object, from machines and parts, to production lines or marine systems, by creating the so-called “digital double”. The reason for using this technology is to allow students to attain experience beforehand in order to avoid failures and subsequent work, because the later errors are discovered, the more it will cost to correct. With this subject, the degrees in this speciality will make it possible for students to train, learn and practice prior to commissioning, thus leading to a reduction in costs and times, increases in productivity and energy savings, in addition to optimization and efficiency. Simulation technologies are mainly used, prior to the realization of an activity or operation. This enables people to practice or experiment with the virtual model and transfer the result to the physical model.
- Augmented reality and virtual reality applied to marine systems. Although augmented reality and virtual reality seem similar terms, they represent quite different things. Both technologies have advanced a lot in recent years and will surely continue to do so in the near future. When referring to augmented reality what is attempted is to perfect reality, and add things to it by means of our senses. We overlay other artificial realities that combine with reality in order to offer a better treatment of it. Furthermore, virtual reality attempts to replace reality through devices that allow us to feel that we are in another place, immerse ourselves in a reality that does not exist, transport us to a constructed reality, a virtual reality. This can be observed with some of the latest augmented reality and virtual reality devices released onto the market.
- Underwater robotics and its integration with surface robotics and aerial robotics. The study of the use of autonomous vehicles (air, marine, etc.) to perform complex underwater intervention tasks and the definition of how to perform coordinated operations of multiple vehicles that execute a cooperative mission, thus increasing the dexterity of the underwater robotic system and improving the sensory capabilities required to carry out these missions.

The final objective of this training complement is to facilitate the adaptation of future engineers trained in the ETSIN to this new technological revolution.
