General information on simulators

SAMK Campus Rauma is a study centre for international trade and logistics. The campus has modern facilities for practical maritime studies through simulations. The modern and versatile learning environments are of internationally high quality.

Bridge simulators

A versatile environment for simulating navigation

  • Finland’s only 360° visual, dynamic positioning command bridge
  • four 120° command bridges, all with dynamic positioning function
  • nine navigation simulator stations
  • radio simulator work stations

Navigation simulators can be used to practice the use of the radar, the use of an electronic chart system, and bridgework. Simulations are most often used to practice and test ship steering, emergencies, and communication. The simulators have stability programs for ten different types of ships.

Engine room simulations

Engine simulators for five different ship models

There are five different ship models in total, and it consists of:

  • the engine control room (ECR) and the engine room, the different levels of which are implemented by computers
  • 12 independent workstations

ISTLAB simulation

ISTLAB simulation (Intelligent shipping technology test laboratory)

ISTLAB’s advanced test laboratory for smart marine technology is located on the Rauma Campus. Read more about the simulation and the project on the ISTLAB website.
