In this paper I describe the design of a new course about ship resistance and ship propulsion system fundamentals. The occasion for designing a new course on this topic was the re-design of the Maritime Technology Bachelor of Science programme at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Especially the alteration to another teaching methodology meant a new design was required for the course and led to the introduction of a Mean Value First Principle dynamic model of a ship propulsion system for voyage simulation. The integration of such a model in an educational environment is challenging. The results of the design effort are discussed in this paper by analysis of the models students developed during the first time the course ran and the feedback that was obtained from them.
