This paper describes a unique design project devised to teach and apply technical skills in port design, but also in the practical cooperation between students in a realistic design project. The 4-week long project now involves students of up to 19 nationalities from 7-10 universities, and has been based each year on real design projects. Student teams of 8-10 per team have to deliver a realistic design to examiners from both academia and industry. The students select from a number of optional modules. No student can take all of them, so appreciation of the skills available within the team are important.
