With the current curriculum developed and implemented in phases since 2013, it is time to evaluate and review the BSc curriculum. For this revision, the success and issues of the previous revision, the changes in our field and society, and the recent insights from educational studies are all reviewed to form the basis of this update. Current developments, like energy and autonomy transitions in the sector, as well as extra attention to learning processes and socialization, as a result of COVID-19, are all reviewed. The goals and vision will be discussed as well as current trends in the industry, science and education sciences. This will form the basis for a curriculum revision, followed by a comparison with related education to verify that a sound basis continues to exist. In the discussion, relevant considerations for Maritime Education, in general, will be drawn from this experience to support others in their updates.
