Overview

This unique degree, the only offered globally under this structure, is addressed both to engineers either with Polytechnic studies (i.e., Naval Architects, Marine and Mechanical engineers, etc), and to graduates from Merchant Marine Academies having basic sea experience (i.e., being certified as competent Chief & 2nd Engineers, but also Masters & Chief Officers), planning their career for next employment in the Technical and Marine Departments of reputable Shipping Companies. (based in Greece and abroad).

All video-based modules are analyzed in series of practical lectures, delivered by renowned Superintendents , and supplemented by cutting edge electronic books and handouts, containing: different check-lists, standard forms, guidances for daily work in the shipping companies, together with very explanatory photos and examples / training cases from series of new-building projects, plus dry-dockings / repairs / conversions of different types and sizes of existing merchant vessels (completed in numerous far-eastern and European shipyards).

Curriculum

The programme is designed to respond directly to the real needs of the maritime industry, and to equip graduates with the skills needed today and, in the future, especially in view of the rapid technological development and disruption in the sector and the forthcoming “4th Propulsion Revolution”. It is academically challenging and professionally oriented.
Several designated modules have been established that enable students to pursue clearly defined marine engineering management areas. In this way, it is envisaged that students will be able to specialise in the areas of their interest.

The programme of studies combines a thorough understanding of the theoretical concepts of marine engineering, along with case studies and practical subjects. The modules offered cover the entire range of the main generic marine engineering management areas and functions and put particular focus on decision making.
